Fudge Brownie Ice Cream Cones

Pin It



Recently I shared a little bit about my twins 1st birthday party here.




Of course, making one huge cake, 2 smash cakes, and chocolate covered pretzels wasn't enough. I had to make something fun for all the kids at the party.


I have seen cupcake cones before, but we already had plenty of cake so I decided to whip up a batch of my favorite brownie recipe and bake those inside the cones, then frost them to look like ice cream.
I bought cherries to put on top, but I thought they looked really cute with just the sprinkles.


I thought these tasted way better than the cake version. Then again, brownies are basically my favorite food ;)
Don't you just want to reach out and take a bite? 


Fudge Brownie Ice Cream Cones
by: Back For Seconds

  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350* 
In a large bowl stir together the melted butter and cocoa. Mix in the sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time until well mixed then add salt and vanilla. Slowly add in the flour and stir until smooth and well blended. Pour into 20 cones and fill to about 1/2" from the top. Bake on cookie sheet about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with fudgy crumbs. Let cool and pipe on your favorite frosting. Store at room temperature in a covered container for up to 5 days.

These bring me back to my elementary school days! My lovely mom made cupcakes like these and surprised my 2nd grade class one day. Ahhh, everybody freaked out over the faux ice cream cone's yumminess and whimsical cuteness. But your brownie twist sounds heavenly! Great job my dear! I found ya via Hubby Made Me's Throwback Thursday party. And I will definitley return back to your scrumptious blog. :)
