Easy Vegan Drumstick Ice Cream Cones

Easy Vegan Drumsticks

Vegan drumstick ice cream cones, need I say more?! I love a good ice cream cone, especially on a hot summer day. My kids have always wanted one of those drumsticks from the store, so I decided it was time to create a replica for them.

I went with the classic drumstick for this go around. You know the one with the waffle cone, hard chocolate in the tip of the cone, vanilla ice cream, topped with a hard chocolate then rolled in peanuts.

Just writing this I am wishing I had one right now!

I went the easy route with these because sometimes it’s just quicker to buy mostly store-bought stuff.

You can find vegan waffle cones at most local grocery stores.

I used SO Delicious Very Vanilla Cashew milk ice cream. This is hands down my favorite vegan vanilla ice cream. It tastes like waffle cones to me, anyone else?

The chocolate ganache is easy to make and whips up quickly.

This recipe comes together pretty quickly so it’s good to have all your ducks in a row before you start.

In order to work with the cones I like to have a mason jar or medium cup for each cone. This makes it so you can keep the cone upright and it doesn’t freeze weird in the freezer.

If you don’t like or are allergic to peanuts feel free to leave them off.

What do you need to make these vegan drumstick ice cream cones?

  • vegan waffle cones
  • 1 pint of So Delicious Vegan Cashew Vanilla, or your favorite kind
  • crushed salted peanuts
  • vegan chocolate chips
  • oil
  • salt
  • vanilla

How do you make it?

Take your pint of ice cream and let it sit out at room temperature while you make the ganache so it’s soft enough to scoop.

Chop your peanuts to small pieces and set aside in a shallow small bowl.

Make your chocolate ganache by mixing the ganache ingredients and cooking in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and if needed do an additional 30 seconds.

Be careful not to over-cook the chocolate because it will seize (which means it will turn hard and won’t work) Set aside.

Take 4 short jars or cups so you can place your cones in them and it will be easier to work with (see pictures above).

Take about 2 tsp of the ganache and put it at the bottom of each cone. Then scoop your ice cream evenly into each cone.

Take the filled cones with their cups and place them in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

After the 10 minutes remove them and scoop and smooth the ganache out on the ice cream then quickly either dip or sprinkle the peanuts on the chocolate.

Repeat this process with the remaining cones and then place them in the freezer. These are best served the same day.

Notes

* Most waffle cones at the store are vegan, just check the ingredient list.

**These have never lasted more than one day in my house so I am not sure on storing, but I would guess once they harden you could wrap them in saran wrap and then place them in a freezer ziplock bag and enjoy them within a week.

https://waterfallmagazine.com You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
