Children love this treat, which is not as messy as a piece of cake. —Mina Dyck, Boissevain, Manitoba


  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 24 ice cream cake cones (about 3 inches tall)
  • Frosting of your choice
  • Sprinkles or chopped peanuts, optional


  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  2. Place ice cream cones in muffin cups. Spoon about 3 tablespoons batter into each cone, filling to 3/4 in. from the top.
  3. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool completely on wire racks. Frost and decorate as desired.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Tapping the cone gently helps batter settle into nooks and crannies.
  • Two scoops are better than one. Serve these with ice cream on top instead of frosting. Warning: Napkins required!
  • Peanut Butter-Reduced fat/Generic
    Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.
