Ice Cream Drumsticks
1 pint soy ice cream
4 waffle cones (Keebler brand is vegan)
4 oz vegan semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1. Thaw ice cream 15 minutes. Fill each cone with 1/2 cup ice cream, placing a rounded ball on the top of each cone. Freeze cones until ice cream is firm again (up to an hour).
2. Chop chocolate and place in a small bowl. Microwave at 50% power, stopping to stir every 45 sec, until chocolate is fully melted. Place chopped nuts on a small plate next to melted bowl of chocolate.
3. Remove cones from freezer and one at a time spoon and swirl chocolate on each cone. Then, quickly dip in nuts. Place cones in freezer again for 2-3 minutes until chocolate hardens.
The cones will keep in a sealed plastic bag for up to 3 months
I have found that soy ice creams with full fat tend to melt better. I would recommend Soy Dream, Purely decadent, or Soy temptation ice creams.
Also, the chocolate cones can be rolled in coconuts, sprinkles, cereal, orange peels or even espresso powder.
