Reviews for Chocolate Cupcake Cones

I made my own version of these before, but can't wait to try this one! To make it easy to bake & somewhat transport, I put a piece of aluminum foil on top of my cupcake pan, and cut a small hole over each cupcake hole and then placed a cone in. It helped keep the cones stable during baking!
Someone had a question about how to transport. If you buy the cones in a box there is an order form for purchasing covered containers. They are great. As a teacher, mother, and grandmother I use them a lot
I would use a scoop of ice-cream on top instead of icing.
The 1st time I made this recipe my oldest was in Pre-K...he's now a 28 year old soldier who still remembers them fondly. I now have two boys and a little girl that enjoy them immensely! Travels great...I throw them into a grocery bag in a cooler. When we eat them at our destination, I have frosting in a sandwich bag, snip a corner and frost away...love it!
I hope these will always be a kids favorite. When the idea came about years ago our room mothers made them for every school party. Sadly to say our school district won't allow home baked donations but I will always make these for my grand kids at home.
