I know that it’s Fall, but we love ice cream all year long. With Halloween, I knew I wanted to have something to share with you that was super easy to do.

These cones were made with pumpkin ice cream, but they could be served with vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter or whatever your favorite ice cream is.

Nothing beats a great ice cream cone—- except maybe a chocolate-dipped ice cream cone. These are a fun Halloween food idea that you can do with even the littlest of kids.

These adorable Halloween Food Treats are made with just three ingredients. Chocolate, ice cream cones and sprinkles. How cool is that!

You can use store-bought cones and they are just as delicious with either a sugar cone, a cake/wafer cone or a waffle cone.

The dipped cones are easy to make and can be done in no time at all. You will need to let them harden for at least 30 minutes (although I usually let them harden for 60 just to make sure.)

This post was originally a part of Halloween Treats week and I was given products to use in this post. But all opinions are my own!

How to Make Chocolate Dipped Cones

Use any type of ice cream cone you like. I used a sugar cone, but a waffle cone or cake/wafer cone can be dipped too.

Buy whatever chocolate you like. This will work with white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate. I like to buy a good bar of chocolate like Godiva Dark, but honestly, it doesn’t matter if you buy the expensive chocolate or the less expensive kind.

If you buy chocolate chips you automatically eliminate the first step of chopping it into small pieces. (TIME SAVER)

Use a microwave-safe bowl to melt the chocolate. Cooking for 30 seconds, stirring until its completely melted.

After dipping the chocolate allow the excess chocolate to completely drip back into the bowl so it doesn’t drip down the side of the cone.

Once the chocolate has finished dripping use your hands to gently sprinkle the sprinkles onto the chocolate. (The ones pictured are from Sweet Treats Shoppe)

It’s tempting to roll the chocolate edges in the sprinkles, but bits of chocolate will fall off and it will be a big mess. (Trust me on this….. it isn’t pretty when there are big globs of chocolate on the edges of your cone.)

Making a holder for the dipped cones out of a cardboard box

What can I use to let the freshly chocolate dipped cones set?

Don’t have a small glass to let the dipped cones dry? You can make your own using any box (I used the cone box) by slicing a large “X” in the cardboard.

Gently push the “X” with your fingers then place the dipped cone in the center.
