Summer time!! Ok, I am jumping the gun by about a week, but I think we can all agree that the good ol’ summer feeling has made it’s grande entrance. We are finishing up our first week of summer vacation, but I know a few of you have kiddos that are finishing up this week.
Whether you have been on break for a couple weeks or are just beginning the adventure that is sleeping in and lazy days, you are going to love these marshmallow dipped ice cream cones.
I think it’s hard to go wrong with marshmallows, chocolate, and sprinkles – right? The kids and I were grocery shopping at the beginning of the week and the A spotted some sugar cones and oh-so-very-sweetly asked me if we could get some to take home.
Knowing his endless love of ice cream I thought, “sure, why not?” and we picked up a couple of boxes. It’s weird that I don’t often buy ice cream cones to have at home because anytime that we go out for ice cream, I ALWAYS order a cone. Always.
I’m just not a dish kind of girl.
I’m more of a deluxe-dipped-cone-with-lots-of-toppings kind of girl. Now you know all of my deepest ice cream secrets. I think that makes us best friends.
What I love about these marshmallow dipped ice cream cones, is that they can make me that deluxe cone girl in my very own home. To make them, I melted Campfire® mini marshmallows in the microwave with a slash of water and stirred until they were smooth and melty.
Then I dipped the rim of a cones in the melty marshmallow, then melted chocolate and finally some festive rainbow sprinkles.
Random thought, but is there such a thing as a sprinkle emoji?
Ok, I just checked and no, there isn’t. I feel like that is something that should exist.
But, back to these cones!
The gooey marshmallow layer topped with the melted chocolate gives these marshmallow dipped ice cream cones a s’mores like flavor which pretty much goes with any kind of ice cream I can think of. Orange sherbet? Amazing! Mississippi Mud Pie? Perfection! Butter Pecan? You betcha!
I could go on, but I won’t. You get the idea.
Next time we make a batch of these cones, I’m thinking I might try a white chocolate drizzle or swapping toasted coconut for the sprinkles…
The possibilities are endless, my friends!
Now go grab yourself a cone and have an awesome weekend <3 xoxo

- 12 sugar cones or waffle cones
- rainbow sprinkles
- Place marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl and add 1 teaspoon of water. Microwave on high in intervals of 15 seconds, stirring between each time, until marshmallows are melted and smooth.
- Take one sugar cone and dip, rim side down, into the marshmallow mixture about 1 1/2-2 inches. onto a greased baking sheet and allow to set for about 10 minutes or until marshmallows have become firm. Repeat with remaining cones.
- Place chocolate chips in a second microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave according to package directions. Spread sprinkles into a shallow rimmed plate or bowl.
- Dip cones, marshmallow side down, into melted chocolate and then into sprinkles. Leave a small amount of marshmallow showing on the cone. Transfer to baking sheet to allow chocolate to harden.

These are so fun! They look great and I’m sure they taste even better!

Made these for treats for softball team and didn’t want to mess with ice cream, so pt a smear of melted choc. on the inside top of cone and placed a mini brownie like a two bite or Lil’ Debbie Mini Brownie and the top of it was even with the top of the cone, let it harden about 10 minutes, then dipped in the marshmallow and placed it upside down on sprayed parchment paper until set, but it did spread some, then dipped in the choc. and again set it upside down on plain parchment paper. Scattered the sprinkles all over fairly thickly on the parchment paper so they would stick to the top of the choc. as it hardened and then dipped the base of an unwrapped candy “Kiss” into the choc. and placed it on the top of the choc. I did have trouble with the choc. wanting to puddle as I had no way of standing the cones upright. On my sample had trouble with “dried marshmallow” sticking to the little snack zip bag that each girl gets with her treat of the week, so decided to completely cover the white marshmallow with the choc.
