Mint Chocolate Chip Frosting Cones

Print Save

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup 1 stick of butter - softened (not melted!)
  • 4 oz of cream cheese - softened not melted!
  • 4 cups of powered sugar
  • 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips optional, you can leave these out
  • 1 teaspoon of McCormick Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of McCormick Peppermint Extract optional - use if you want a mint flavor
  • McCormick Green Food Coloring
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt optional - I prefer it to cut the sweetness a bit
  • Chocolate or vanilla coating of your choice one bag of Wiltons Melts or container of Candiquik
  • Sprinkles for garnish
  • 24 mini ice cream cones

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your butter and cream cheese until well mixed and fluffy. Add in vanilla and peppermint extract (if using).
  • Add in a few drops of green food coloring until the desired hue is reached. Remember that your color will lighten when you add in powdered sugar.
  • Add in salt (optional) and powdered sugar about 1/2 cup at a time, until you reach your desired consistency. 3 1/2 cups might be enough for some, depending on your butter and cream cheese, while some may need the entire 4 cups (or even a tad more). You want a very thick frosting - much thicker than what you'd frost a cake with, but still able to stir.
  • Add in your chocolate chips.
  • If needed add in a drop or two more food coloring. Stir until well combined.
  • Place mixture in refrigerator for at least two hours.
  • Once chilled use a small scoop to create scoops of ice cream and place onto mini cones. Depending on the size of your scoop (I made mine about 1-1 1/2" in diameter) you should get about 24 cones. Place in the fridge while you prepare your chocolate.
  • Prepare your chocolate coating according to package directions. Make sure it's not too hot.
  • Drizzle a small amount of chocolate on top of frosting scoops if desired to mimic hot fudge. Add sprinkles or toppings and allow to dry.
  • Store in refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!
