Updated April 19, 2017


  • 16 ice cream cones
  • 2 cups colored candy melts (or chocolate chips)
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles
  • 1/4 cup espresso
  • 1/3 cup vanilla or coffee ice cream, melted
  • 1/3 cup Bailey's™ Irish Cream or Kahlúa™ liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting, melted


  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.
  • 2
    With a very sharp, non-serrated knife, slice the top off of each ice cream cone. Discard the tops, set the bottom cup portions aside.
  • 3
    In a medium glass bowl, melt candy melts in the microwave in 20-30 second bursts and stir until smooth.
  • 4
    Drizzle a spoonful of candy melt into the center of the cone. Swirl it around, ensuring the inside of the entire cone is fully coated with candy melt. Tip cone upside-down to allow excess candy melt to drizzle out.
  • 5
    Dip the rim of the cone into the candy melt.
  • 6
    Just before serving, whisk together espresso, melted ice cream, and liqueur. Pour into waffle cups. Drizzle with melted chocolate frosting, if desired.
