There’s nothing better on a hot, sunny afternoon than enjoying ice cream with family and friends! This Father’s Day, show dad how special he is with an array of homemade novelties using his favorite flavors of ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet or sorbet.
Make-Your-Own Sundae Cones
Homemade sundae cones are fun, easy to make … and best of all, easy to enjoy!
- 1 box of cake or sugar cones
- 1-2 (or more!) flavors of Pierre’s Ice Cream or Yovation Probiotic Frozen Yogurt
- 1 bottle of shell topping for ice cream or melted chocolate chips or candy discs
- Various toppings such sprinkles, crushed peanuts, mini-chocolate chips
If melting your own chocolate, follow package directions. Fill each cone with ice cream – try using a scoop of each flavor. Dip the top of the cone in the melted chocolate or drizzle shell topping over cone. Quickly cover with toppings (we like to dip the cone in a shallow bowl filled with sprinkles). Serve immediately.
Of course, you can also buy Pierre’s great-tasting Pierre’s Sundae Cones at your local grocery store.
