Homemade Waffle Cones are easy to make with a WaffleCone Express. They will take your favorite ice cream to the next level. When they are still hot, I like to plug the bottom with chocolate chips. No more drips!
For my first attempt at making waffle cones some time back, I used the recipe that came with WaffleCone Express. The cones ended up tasting eggy. Also, I had trouble rolling them into a cone shape.
The next time, I used David Lebovitz’s Ice Cream Cone recipe from The Perfect Scoop. They were perfect! I’ve been using this recipe ever since.
I first posted the recipe on July 9, 2014, and thought that it was time to update not only the photographs, but also the text. In addition, I added a video showing how I make the Waffle Cones. The recipe, however is the same with a few tweaks.
Ingredients for Waffle Cones
I used the following ingredients for this amazing treat: Egg whites, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, all-purpose flour and melted unsalted butter. I also used chocolate chips, which I’ll explain in a minute!
Making the Batter
As a first step, I beat together the egg whites, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl (Photo 1). Then, I added half of the flour and beat the mixture until smooth (Photo 2).
Next, I added the salt, melted butter and remaining flour (Photo 3). Finally, I beat the mixture until it was smooth (Photo 4).
Making the Waffle Cones
I started by heating the WaffleCone Express for 5 minutes on setting #4.
Then, I brushed both sides with vegetable oil and dropped 2 Tablespoons of batter in the middle (Photo 5). I used a 1 ¾-inch ice cream scoop here.
I closed the lid and cooked the waffle for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Using a wooden fork, I carefully lifted the cooked waffle and transferred it to a clean dish towel (Photo 6).
With the plastic cone mold that was included with the WaffleCone Express, I carefully rolled the waffle into a cone shape and pinched the bottom to seal it. Then, I held it in place for about a 10 seconds until the cone was able to hold its shape.
If you’re wondering about the chocolate chips, this is where they come in. I wanted to make sure that the ice cream didn’t drip from the bottom of the cone.
Therefore, I dropped several chocolate chips into the warm cone. Then, I pushed them down with a small dowel as the chocolate melted. This not only worked like a charm, but also produced a chocolaty surprise at the bottom of the cone!
I ended up with 8 incredible waffle cones that were crispy and crunchy. They will take any ice cream of your choice over the top. Yum!
