Summertime is upon us and of course one of the best ways to cool down is with ice cream. But this isn’t your traditional ice cream cone of summers past. Just select your favorite fruits, your favorite melon ballers and your favorite white chocolate for a quick and easy summer treat!
White Chocolate (quantity will depend on the number of cones and the thickness of chocolate, maybe 1 chocolate melt per 2-3 cones)
Melon ballers in various sizes (I used a round measuring tablespoon and regular sized melon baller)
Small Silicone brush
Melt chocolate in the microwave until smooth. Quickly brush the insides of each cones making sure no gaps are present. This will insure the cones do not become soggy from the water content of the fruit. Let set until completely hard. This step can be done ahead of time and store cones in an air tight container.
When ready, use the regular melon baller to create two balls for each cone.
Using the round tablespoon, start to cut into the fruit at about a 90’ angle, curve into the fruit creating the main body of the ball. Go deep enough into the fruit so that a small portion of the handle is hidden. Turn the handle clockwise and just before you make a full circle pull up and pop the fruit ball out.
Place the first ball deep inside followed by the second ball on top making sure enough is above the rim so the larger ball can rest on top of it. This will help the top layer not slide off.
20-30 minutes in the freezer and it will be perfect for a hot summer day.
