These pops come from my unbiased love for ice cream and cupcakes. I had never thought about the two sweets together; that is until I stumbled across these heavenly cones. All you gotta do is buy some cake mix, cones, and chocolate and you’ve got yourself a dreamy delicacy. Bite into a rich chocolate shell, only to taste a delectable, moist cake base. These Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops are all of our childhood dreams come true.

#SpoonTip: Making the cupcake base rainbow  guarantees mad Instagram likes (and is especially easy to do!).

Using a medium cookie scoop, take a bit of each color mixture to form 15 tie-dye cake balls. Freeze for 15 minutes.

Step 8

Take the cake balls out of the freezer. Dip the top of the open end of the cake cone into the melted white chocolate and immediately place a cake balls on top of the cone. Set the cones aside until they are  completely set.

SpoonTip: The white chocolate is like the “glue” that attaches the cake ball to the cone. If necessary, you can dip the cake ball in chocolate before placing it on top of the cone.
