Summer time, ice cream time, right?
But what about something that does not melt away in seconds when it is too hot outside?
Or even something that you can take away, for a friend for example.
I am talking about Cake Pops here, but these will look just like ice cream, placed in ice cream cones, and are coated with yummy vanilla and chocolate candy melts.
These are so fun, so yummy, I tell you.
My nephews and my niece loved them, just look at them and you know what I mean. I know you want to take a bite, or two…
When I was a little niner, I was, probably like every child, obsessed with ice cream, so crazy about it. When I was in kindergarten, I even counted in scoops of ice cream, not in cents or our currency, it was allll about ice cream! I always told people that my goal was to open up an ice cream parlor when I was old enough. Oh dear, childhood dreams.
Things changed obviously, but these are great memories and I love to go back and think about my childhood, the way we used to daydream so much as kids. It was just amazing and I am very thankful for that.
Now back to my recipe, inspired by wonderful Bakerella. Since I still love ice cream a lot and absolutely adore Cake Pops, I thought I’d give these a try.
And they turned out super cute.

- Prep Time 20 minutes
- Baking Time 30 minutes and longer
- Difficulty Easy
For the Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops:
- Your favourite Cake Pop recipe
- Sawed Off Waffle Cones
- Candy Melts (pink and brown) – I used Merckens Candy Melts
- Peanut M&Ms
Utensils /equipment / decorations examples that I use.
- 1. Now, start off by making your favourite Cake Pop recipe. I usually make the no-bake Oreo version, it is faster. But the usual Cake Pops are awesome too, I just make these not too often.
If this is your first time making Cake Pops, please visit my various blogposts for Cake Pops recipes, such as: Sweet Heart Cake Pops, Bright summer colors: Cake Pops, Yummy, Oreo no-bake Cupcake Lollipops or Cheesecake Pops. Just browse through my Baking/Cake Pops section and you will find something, I am sure :-)
- 2. Now, when your Cake Balls are done and firmed up int he refrigerator, add a cake ball to your waffle cone to make it look like an ice cream scoop. I usually have to break something from the cone off so the Cake Ball fits.
- 3. Now melt your candy melts of your choice (I use Merckens Candy Melts).
- 4. In this case you do not need lollipop sticks. Simply add a cake call to your ice cream cone and add the heated pink candy on top of it (I used a spoon), let it drip to make it look like real ice cream, or put a cake ball in your candy coating and then plop it on the ice cream cone, which is, a little messier :-)
- 5. Quickly add some sprinkles before the coating dries.
- 6. Put it in a styrofoam block to dry completely
- 7. Once the pink candy coating is dry, add the brown candy coating on top of it, with a spoon, let it drip again on the sides.
- 8. Put an M&M candy on top of it. Et voilá :-)
- 9. Now let it dry, in a styrofoam block
- 10. Remain doing this with the other cake balls until you’re done.
Note: These are GREAT for kids’ birthday parties.
And summer parties!
Have fun making these!!
