Patriotic Dipped Ice Cream Cones
The patriotic holidays have always been a big deal at our house. But now that we have a member of the Army in the immediate family, we go all out! I wanted to include our four and five year old grandchildren in the preparation this year, so I thought we could try some chocolate dipped and decorated ice cream cones. This is a very kid friendly food activity. And you get ice cream at the end . . . I suspect this helped keep them motivated to finish (wink).
I started with three colors of the chocolate wafers from the local craft store, along with some fun red, white and blue sprinkles.
Melt them in the microwave for 20-30 seconds at a time, stir and repeat.
Now comes the fun part . . . dip and swirl each cone into the melted chocolate. Allow excess to drip off, decorate with contrasting sprinkles and sit on a piece of wax paper to cool.
Fill with your favorite ice cream and enjoy!
