If there is any dessert that tastes like my childhood, it’s a drumstick ice cream cone. I mean, I still eat them with fair regularity as a grown-up, but even so, one bite brings me back to chasing down the ice cream truck or sitting on the scalding scratchy concrete by the public pool. I love them every bit as much as I did back then and now that I think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t love them… and that’s precisely why you should take that same combination of sweet and smooth vanilla ice cream and the crisp-crunch of sugar cones, peanuts, and hard chocolate shell and make it in a way you can serve to all your friends. I give you Drumstick Ice Cream Pie.
I’m sure we all have different favorite ice cream novelties but all I know is that when I think of a drumstick cone, the rest fade completely from my memory. I can’t even picture another one right now because I’m just thinking about how good it is when you bite through a hard chocolate shell studded with peanuts and it gives way to creamy vanilla ice cream. But I probably don’t have to tell you… you know the glory.
12 sugar cones
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 quart vanilla ice cream
