Homemade Ice Cream Drumsticks

We made ice cream drumsticks this weekend and they were a *huge* hit with my kids! 

You'll need:

homemade chocolate hard shell
confetti quins
- sugar cones
- ice cream

You'll also need about 6 jelly jars or low ball glasses, rice (yes, rice), an ice cream scoop, 1 cup measuring cup and a spoon or two.

Set up for homemade ice cream drumsticks

 Like all projects with chocolate magic shell, be prepared to work quickly. I found it worked better to make the magic shell a little thinner than usual (add an extra teaspoon of oil). 

Before you start, have everything together. Pour rice into a few pint sized jelly jars about half way up (low ball glasses would work too) to hold the cones upright while they set in the freezer.

Coating a sugar cone with homemade chocolate hard shell

Drizzle about a tablespoon of magic shell in a sugar cone and swirl it around. Once covered, put it in a cup or jar and into the freezer for about 20 minutes. At the same time, take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften.

Fill the cone with ice cream and top it with a rounded scoop. Put the cones into one of the cups with rice and place it back in the freezer for about an hour while they harden.

Dipping an ice cream cone into magic shell

Pour the hard shell into a deep custard cup or a 1 cup measuring cup. Take an ice cream cone out of the freezer and dip it into the hardshell quickly (til the ice cream is completely covered) and then sprinkle quins or jimmies. Put it back into a cup and back into the freezer til it's time to eat. One batch of magic shell will make about 6 - 8 drumsticks.
