Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes


  • waffle cones
  • 1 box cupcake mix, prepared (or homemade)
  • frosting of choice (homemade or canned)
  • chocolate melts, or chocolate magic shell
  • red M&Ms or skittles


  1. Bake cupcakes as directed on box, or make your favorite recipe from scratch.  Fill the muffin tin only half way.  (You’ll want the cupcakes to be a bit smaller).
  2. Meanwhile, dip the top of your waffle cones in chocolate melts or magic shell.  Sprinkle with jimmies, and let dry. 
  3. Once cupcakes have cooled completely, frost tops and stick inside waffle cones.  Add more frosting to cover any “gaps” where you can see the cupcake.  Pipe more frosting on top, if desired. 
  4. Let the frosting harden a bit.  Add more melted chocolate or magic shell to give the appearance of hot fudge.  Garnish with more jimmies and a red M&M or skittle for a cherry.
*Note: I didn’t have a good way of storing or displaying these.  I only made half of a dozen and stored them in my fridge in short glasses.  To anchor them for serving, I recommend filling glasses with M&Ms or Skittles to get cones to “stand.”*
