These cones defy the usual, incorporating flavors and textures that will trump that boring old waffle cone every time. We’ve all had cones dipped and coated in sprinkles, nuts, or coconut, but have you had a cookie cone?
Using both classic and not-so-classic ingredients (like bacon and even tortillas), these cones attack your taste buds with sweet, salty, and even umami-laced flavors that will elevate your next ice cream cone treat.
These cones are all easy to make, but require one essential tool: a cone mold. Before you run out and buy a fancy one, though, consider making your own. Simply wrap a waffle cone in foil and spray it with non-stick baking spray — and there you'll have a perfect cone mold that is safe to use in the oven.
The Daily Meal has rounded up these 11 ice cream cones, guaranteed to improve the taste of even the simplest ice cream flavors. Consider pairing a Fruity Pebbles cone with vanilla ice cream for a milk-and-cereal combo or use classic strawberry ice cream in a peanut butter bread cone for a PB and J. Read on for more.
