  • 1 quart vegan vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 sugar cones
  • ¼ cup raw almonds , finely chopped


  • Place the Vegan Ice Cream on the counter to allow it to soften.
  • Combine the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe container. Place in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. Remove and stir and repeat this step until the chocolate chips and coconut oil have melted. Stir well to combine. Set aside.
  • Pour about 1 tablespoon of the dark chocolate chip mixture into the bottom of four sugar cones. Place the cones in small glasses to keep them upright. You can also spread some of the melted chocolate along the inside of the sugar cones. Place them in the freezer so the chocolate can harden, anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes.
  • Use an ice cream scooper or a large spoon to ladle the softened ice cream into the prepared sugar cones. Make sure to leave a nice dollop of ice cream at the top. Place these in the freezer so the ice cream can firm up, around 10 minutes.
  • Spread a generous amount of the chocolate mixture over one drumstick and roll that in the chopped nuts while the chocolate is still spreadable. Place it back in the freezer. Repeat with each of the drumsticks.
  • Once the drumsticks have firmed up, place them in a plastic bag or container for storage. When you’re ready to eat them, remove them from the freezer for about 5 to 10 minutes to allow the ice cream to soften before eating.
