The best part of summer? Besides the nice weather, and the seasonal fruit, and the constant sun, and the longer days? The ice cream. Specifically a melty ice cream cone with extra toppings that withstand a delicious crunchy waffle cone. These chocolate chunk ice cream cone cookies are brought to you by my love for summer, and all the great memories that come with it.
I am so obsessed with these cookies because they feel like summer on their own, or even more so with a scoop of ice cream on top! And the absolute best part of these cookies?! The fact that you can enjoy them no matter the season, summer or winter! Eat your heart out with these chocolate chunk ice cream cone cookies, baby!
How do I get big pools of chocolate like these?
For those pools of deliciously glossy melty chocolate, chop your own chocolate! I like to start with a block of dark chocolate and chop into big chunks to use in my cookie dough. This brand is my favorite for cookies! Of course, using store bought chocolate chunks or chopping up a chocolate bar are perfectly fine options, too. But for the best pools of chocolate, grab a block of chocolate and chop it into large chunks.
Can I use cake cones instead of waffle cones?
Unfortunately, I wouldn’t recommend it. Waffle cones stand up better to cake cones in the batter and withstand their crunch even after baking, which is part of what makes these delicious cookies so… well, delicious!
What if I like a crunchier cookie versus a gooey one?
To each their own! We all have preferences and luckily, these cookies can be crunchier if you like them that way! Simply bake for an extra minute or two (about 14 minutes), and once you let them cool, they’ll be a bit crunchier.
Hope you enjoy these and that they bring you all the summer feels like they do for me!
