How to Make Homemade Waffle Cones without Waffle Iron

Hello, hello! How was everybody’s weekend? Once again my children have taken over my blog 🙂 And today’s post is the result of the take over. How to make homemade waffle cones without waffle iron.

Today I really don’t have a story but more of how this take over of my blog went. My boys have wanted to have waffle cones and ice cream for awhile now and I refuse to buy them. Can anybody relate? We have went back and forth about this and over the weekend I decided to surprise them with homemade ones.

In my household as soon as the bowl gets set on the counter I have boys rush me to ask what I am making. Not necessarily to help but to taste 🙂 Well, today they wanted to help, make and taste! I was going to only show you the pictures that I made but I realized that this isn’t what this blog is about. So with that in mind these pictures are mainly of my boys creating, cooking and eating today’s recipe.

I hope that you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed sharing this with my boys.

Start with 4 large egg whites and mix with 3/4 cup sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla.

Why am I showing you a picture of egg whites? Because years ago I didn’t know that meant the egg without the yolk. Oh, Lindsay you have come far girl 🙂

Once that is whisked add 6 tablespoons of milk, a pinch of salt, 4 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 1/3 cup of four. Whisk until completely mixed with no lumps in the batter.

Pour the mixture onto a hot griddle or skillet about 7 inches by 7 inches. Make sure it is a circle and the bigger the circle the bigger the cone.

You want this too crisp. So you have to wait not only for it to bubble completely in the middle but also look like it is almost cooked all the way through.

Once it has cooked take off the griddle very quickly and make your cone. Start at the bottom and make the cone part. There will be a hole at the bottom. This is okay we will fill it with chocolate later. Shape into a cone and lay flat.

After you have made the cones now it gets to the fun part. Melt 2 bricks of chocolate, or white chocolate. Your preference. I did each. I wanted a white chocolate cone with pecans to go with butter pecan ice cream. And my boys wanted chocolate ice cream with chocolate cones. Dip the top and bottom of the cones in the chocolate and place somewhere for them to cool. After we did this I would recommend putting them in the fridge to harden. Not only the chocolate but also the cones. It will make the cone firmer.

Very important, eat a brick of chocolate while you are dipping the cones in the chocolate.

Make fun of the spoon go ahead. I can take it. My youngest was sleeping and I didn’t want to wake him with the clanking of a spoon against glass.

Next sprinkle your cone with your choice of sprinkles or nuts. Mine had crushed pecans and the boys used sprinkles. Note: if you are a mamma that likes everything clean and never messy. The sprinkles are not for you. They were EVERYWHERE! And of course I couldn’t vacuum because my youngest was asleep. So we walked on sprinkles for a couple of hours 🙂 Not really I swept the floor but it really did feel like I was still walking on sprinkles. And not in a good way.

If that is true we hit this recipe out of the park 🙂 Because my table was a disaster!

Before I could get ice cream into his cone I turned around and he had gobbled up the bottom of his cone 🙂 So this is how my littlest guy in the family ate his.
