Chocolate Cupcake Cones
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.
Makesabout 3 dozen
These are very fun for children and adults alike!! I love the addition of the cream cheese “surprise” in the center of the cupcake. To both bake and transport these, I cut holes in the bottom of a foil roasting pan, turned it bottom-up on a sheet pan, and dropped the cones into the holes. It worked perfectly!! VFE
When I make these, I plan ahead & save empty cereal boxes & cut holes to set cones in....great when your traveling, it stays in place.
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.
This was one of the first recipes I made in 7th grade home economics class (back in the day when they had home ec classes). its great. I used it for my children and now for my grandchildren.
I have been making these cupcakes since my kids were little, they are all grown with their own children now. The first time I tried them I made them for a huge family gathering on July 4th and made them look like Lady Libertie's torch. They were a big hit. Enjoy making these and use your imagination to make them into great things
Any suggestions how to transport them?
