  • 6 ice cream cones
  • 48 ounces vanilla or chocolate ice cream
  • 16 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts


  • Place a chocolate chip or morsel into the bottom of each cone.
  • Stuff each ice cream cone with 8 ounces of ice cream, finishing with a perfect half sphere on top of each cone (use your hands, if needed.) Freeze on cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper, until solid, about an hour.
  • Melt chocolate and dip the ice cream into the melted ice cream up to the cone. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
  • Place back on lined sheet and freeze for another 10-20 minutes.


You can add in 1 teaspoon up to 1 tablespoon coconut oil into your chocolate before you melt the chocolate. This makes your chocolate a lot thinner and will cause the chocolate set up immediately on your ice cream (sort of like Magic Shell.)
