If you’re on Instagram or Pinterest, you may have seen coffee in a cone. Drinking coffee from a chocolate-dipped ice cream cone is the latest food trend. It has become one of the “World’s Most Instagrammable Coffee.” The credit goes to Dayne Levinrad, a barista from South Africa, who turned his invention idea into a local and global hit.
You can serve whatever coffee beverage in the cone, whether it is a pour-over, dripped, cold-brewed, espresso, macchiato, or flat white. It’s just way too good to pass up.
Instead of drooling over those photos on Instagram, have you ever thought about making and serving coffee in a cone at home? Today I am going to show you how.
The cone is not just any ordinary cone, but it is coated with multiple layers of chocolate. To make the cone, we will need the following ingredients:
- Ice cream cone or waffle cone
- Candy melt or chocolate chips
- Sprinkles (optional)
Here is an easy step-by-step guide:
Put an adequate amount of chocolate candy melt in a double boiler and start melting.
Stir candy melt consistently to accelerate the melting process.
Use a spoon to coat the inside wall of the ice cream cone evenly.
Dip the rim into a thick coat of chocolate.
Dip with rainbow sprinkles to add color to the cone (optional).
Rest the cone upside down on a piece of parchment paper for about 10 minutes.
You may dip several cones at once and store them for up to a week.
