Making our own waffle cones and then buy ice cream (hopefully on sale) at the store would be so much cheaper than going and buying cones at the ice cream shop.
I knew I didn't have the proper waffle iron for cones (mine is a regular one - which works well and we have really been enjoying since Ken got it for me for my birthday) but I figured we would try it anyway.
I went looking for recipes on line and finally chose one I thought might work and that we had the stuff for. Megan and I worked together to mix it up, we heated up the waffle maker and covered some Styrafoam forms with tin-foil to wrap on cone around.
We gave it a try. It was fun and we did make cones of sorts but they tasted more like regular waffles than they did waffle cones. They were thick and then didn't get crisp and they really kind of liked to come apart.
I won't be trying just that method again but I would like to figure out a better one. I still think it would be fun to make our own ice cream cones. Does anybody have any suggestions?
