Homemade Drumsticks




Homemade Ice Cream Drumsticks
1/2 gallon ice cream (any flavor), slightly softened
8 sugar cones
1 1/4 cups semisweet/dark chocolate chips
4 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped roasted/salted peanuts, optional
Set up freezer with a holder to support ice cream cones, or place 8 narrow glasses inside that can support the cones. Alternatively, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with a piece of parchment paper and setting it in the freezer.
Place 2 chocolate chips in the bottom of each of the sugar cones.
Use a butter knife to fill each of the cones with ice cream, then top off with a rounded scoop of ice cream. Place each ice cream cone in the freezer as you finish, either placing them inside the narrow glasses (or other stand) to hold them upright or laying them on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Freeze for at least 3 hours.
Melt the remaining chocolate chips with 2 tbsp of butter in the microwave, working in 30 second increments. Choose a small bowl because it makes dipping easier. Stir in remaining butter. Chocolate should be smooth and relatively thin.
Working with one ice cream cone at a time, dip the frozen ice cream scoops in chocolate, rotate to coat and return to freezer. If using nuts, quickly dip chocolate into nuts before re-freezing.
Chill at least 1-2 hours before serving. Store in airtight bags.
Makes 8 drumsticks.
