Ingredients

Mini Sugar Cones:

Directions

Special equipment:
an ice cream maker and a cone mold
  1. To make the ice cream, combine the coconut milk, cashews, water, sugar, mint leaves, vanilla extract, mint extract and salt in a high-speed blender on high for 1 minute. Process in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s direction until the ice cream is the texture and consistency of soft serve, about 30 minutes. At the end of the churning process, add the cold dark chocolate and churn until fully incorporated. Pour the mixture into a lidded container and freeze for at least 6 hours.
  2. To make the clown cones, place a scoop of ice cream on the cookie. Give it a cone hat and pipe a nose, mouth, hair, and hat decorations using the frosting. Use two small blobs of frosting to stick on candy coated chocolates for the eyes. Enjoy immediately or stick back in the freezer for later.

Mini Sugar Cones:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites, vanilla, and almond extract. Add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and mix until you have a smooth batter.
  2. Heat a medium, non-stick pan over medium heat. Ladle 1 1/2 tablespoons of the batter into the middle of the pan and spread around to form a thin, 4-inch circle. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes until bubbles form and the perimeter is lightly browned and pulls away from the pan. Gently flip the cone-round and cook for 1 more minute. Carefully remove from the pan and very quickly shape the round on a greased ice cream cone mold. Press the edges to seal until crisp. Stand it up with the pointy end on top, propping it up as needed, and cool fully. Repeat with the remaining batter, cleaning the pan and greasing the cone mold each time.

Cook’s Note

Psst: you can also use this recipe to make homemade fortune cookies! All you need to do is make 1-tablespoon 3-inch circles instead and then fold them in half over a handwritten fortune and join the corners together. Let them dry in a cupcake tin so their shapes hold.
