These homemade Waffle Cones are a dessert in themselves or can be eaten with your favorite ice cream. They are perfect for holding large scoops of your favorite ice cream!
I’ve always wondered how to make waffle cones and boy it was worth making it. Homemade waffles are delicious and paired with sprinkles, it just puts the icing on the cake! I really had fun making these waffle cones, but my fingers were burnt by the time I was done making them because the waffles are very hot when you take them out of the waffle maker.
I used a towel to help roll the cones into shape, but it wasn’t enough, in fact, some of my viewers from YouTube mentioned, their fingers were burnt by the end of the day when they worked at an ice cream shop. Hope you enjoy making these waffles!
Tips and Tricks for Making This Waffle Cone Recipe:
- Do not forget to use a towel when rolling the waffle cone. The waffle is very hot from the waffle maker so to protect your hands from direct heat, a towel is a must.
- Work quickly when rolling the waffles to get the best cone shape. The waffle is easy to shape when the temperature is still high.
- Allow the waffle cones enough time to cool and harden. If you touch them too soon, they tend to get squeezed and be deformed.
