One more fun way to use the Mint Chocolate Chip Buttercream Frosting I made. This frosting just looks too much like ice cream to NOT use it, well, like ice cream. And what a fun & festive way to do so for St. Patrick’s Day!
Oh my word, seriously these are the cutest little things EVER. I have an overwhelming desire to make a million different versions of them. I used the tiny little Joy Mini Cup Cones (found at my Walmart). By the way, when I was linking them to the Joy site, I noticed they make Gluten Free Sugar Cones. Pretty cool!
To make these just make up your Mint Chocolate Chip Buttercream Frosting from the recipe in this post. Seriously, looks just like ice cream! I used my cookie scoop to scoop up the frosting and top the cones, just like you would do it with ice cream.
And scoop it on to your cones – voila! While you don’t need to keep them in the freezer, the fridge is the way to go with these. Between the cream cheese in the recipe and not wanting the frosting to lose it’s shape, keeping them chilled until serving is a good plan.
I think I may have to make a fresh batch of the Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes and top them with this frosting, I mean how crazy cute would it be on these??? Yeah, that’s going on the “to do” list.
Baking really is like playing with your food. There are just so many fun ways to mix it up and use your ingredients in different ways. Enjoy!
If you want to get fancy, add a little chocolate coating, sprinkles and a candy to the top (I used a white Sixlet).
