Single Scoop Cake Cones



This is a fun recipe that I found on Candiquik.com and changed to my liking.  I unveiled them for the first time with friends at a gathering last summer.  They have been a favorite since then!!  Great for birthday parties, BBQs, and school events.  They were a huge hit!!

(printable recipe) 

1 pkg. vanilla almond bark
1 pkg. chocolate almond bark
1 box yellow cake mix (plus ingredients for cake mix)
1 container cream cheese cake frosting
1 container of colored sprinkles
36 sugar ice cream cones (found in packages of 12)
1 bag of cinnamon red hots for cherries (or red M&Ms)

  1. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on box. 
  2. While still hot, crumble cake into a large bowl. Mix thoroughly with frosting. Place mix in the fridge (or freezer to shorten time) for a couple hours or until somewhat firm.  
  3. Cut the top of the cones off, so the cones measure approximately 3 ½ inches tall .
  4. Roll cake mixture into medium sized balls, placing on a wax coated cookie sheet and chill for approximately 1-2 hours until firm. (You can shorten this time again by placing in the freezer.)  
  5. Melt vanilla bark according to directions in large glass bowl.
  6. Dip top of cone into melted bark.  Press a cake ball on top of the cone. Using a spoon, drizzle the bark over the ball and “paint” to cover.  Sprinkle immediately with colored sprinkles.  
  7. Stick cones into a Styrofoam block or ice cream cone holder to dry.  I used the cone boxes as a drying rack by poking holes in the front to place the cones in (see picture).
  8. Once dry, melt chocolate bark and spoon a small amount on top of each cone allowing it to drip down, then top with a red hot or M&M before the bark has set.
TIPS:  Almond bark can be found in your grocery baking aisle.  I kept the cake balls in the refrigerator while I was adding them to the cones.  This keeps them firm and easier to cover.
