Easy Homemade Drumsticks

I’m not sure that these homemade drumsticks legally fall under the recipe category as there’s little to no real cooking or baking involved. That being said, I am sharing how to make Magic Shell from scratch (thanks Joanna!) so that’s got to count for something, right? Plus, it’s a well known fact that homemade anything tastes infinitely better than the store bought variety, even if said store bought variety is your childhood embodied. And now that I know how ridiculously easy it is to make these bad boys, I solemnly swear to never go back to the original version again (unless I’m out and desperate – then all bets are off, for the sake of drumstick emergencies only of course).

Need:: Sugar cones
:: Good quality chocolate (I used Lindt)
:: Coconut oil
:: Vanilla bean ice cream (bonus points if it’s homemade. May I suggest this recipe?)
:: Sprinkles, sweetened coconut, chopped peanuts (or any other toppings that suit your fancy)

Note: the best part of this “recipe” is that there are no hard and fast rules in terms of measurements. The quantities will vary depending on how many drumsticks you intend on making.

DO1. In a bain marie, melt your chocolate and coconut oil until smooth. Remember Magic Shell? Well we’re making the homemade version. The ratio should be about 2:3 coconut oil to chocolate.

2. Remove the melted chocolate from the bain marie and let cool for 5-10 minutes.

3. Pour approximately 1 tablespoon into the bottom of each sugar cone, and slowly rotate the cones until the chocolate coats the entire inside. Once finished, stand them up in a cup, and place them in the freezer for a 2-4 minutes. The chocolate should harden pretty quickly.

4. Once the chocolate has hardened, use an ice cream scooper to scoop a big round ball of ice cream onto your cone.

5. Dip the ice cream in the homemade magic shell and then immediately dip it into the topping of your choice.

6. Enjoy!
