Print Recipe


  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
  • 6 sugar ice cream sugar cones
  • 2 cups hot fudge ice cream topping warmed
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Red and blue sprinkles or colored sugar placed in two shallow bowls


  • Remove ice cream from the freezer and allow to soften for about 5 minutes. Stand short glasses inside a 9x13 pan. (Be sure top edge of cones are taller than glasses.)
  • Pour hot fudge on the inside and around the sugar cone, allowing it to pool at the bottom. I used about 1 tablespoon of fudge per cone.
  • Place chocolate chips and oil in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on HIGH until almost all chips have melted. Heat in increments of 20 seconds. Stir until all chips have melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Pack ice cream into the cone. (I used a small spoon to pack it down completely) Using an ice cream scoop, dip a perfect ball-shaped scoop on the top of the cone and press down firmly (but carefully).
  • Turn cone upside down and dip top of cone in melted chocolate/oil mixture. Dip one side of the top into the red sprinkles, and then dip the other side in the blue sprinkles. Leave a bit of white in the middle to make red, white and blue.
  • Place the Homemade Drumsticks back in the glasses and place them in the freezer. Repeat the process until all sugar cones are filled, dipped & sprinkled.
  • If not eating the cones right away, roll in parchment and wrap in foil. Place in freezer friendly zip lock bags/airtight container for up to one month.
