I could eat ice cream ALL YEAR LONG.  It’s one of my favorite treats.  But you know what’s better than ice cream?  Eating ice cream out of a homemade waffle cone.  That’s right – yum!

The Chef’s Choice Wafflecone Express 838 isa great kitchen tool, especially if you like ice cream.  What’s great about making waffle cones at home is that YOU can control what ingredients are in YOUR food.

Waffle Cone Express

The Chef’s Choice Wafflecone Express 838 comes with instructions and recipes for Gourmet Waffle Cones, Elegant Wafer Cones, and Chocolate Waffle Cones.  And you know what?  There are no complicated or fancy-schmancy ingredients needed.  Simple, common ingredients and I bet you are able to pronounce all of them.

Following a Paleo diet?  No problem.  (Check out this waffle cone recipe by Jenni Hulet for a deee-licious Paleo cone.)  Gluten free?  Then my recipe for Homemade Coconut Waffle Cones should work for you.

How To Make Coconut Waffle Cones

For this delicious gluten-free waffle cone recipe, you need the following ingredients:

2 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
⅓  cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
¾ cup almond flour
3 Tablespoons arrowroot flour
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
¼ cup shredded coconut
¼ teaspoon salt
2 eggs

To make the batter, place all of the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until smooth.  Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.  (Do not skip this step.)

Waffle Batter

Next, heat waffle iron. Scoop batter onto the waffle iron and bake per manufacturer’s directions.

Once the waffle has cooked, immediately remove it from waffle iron and roll or form into the desired shape while still hot.

This recipe was adapted from Jenni’s recipe (mentioned above).  It is not quite Paleo because it includes butter and cane sugar rather than Paleo-approved alternatives.  Nonetheless, the waffle cones are delicious and all-in-all they are quite easy to make.  The hardest part is learning how to roll them.

Let me introduce you to the Wafflecone Express 838

Waffle Grid

This little nonstick beauty bakes waffles in just a matter of minutes.  No flipping required.  Baked waffles practically slide right off.  (I use a fork to remove mine.)

Basically, you make your waffle cone batter, heat the waffle iron, spoon a little batter onto the iron, close tightly, and allow the machine to work its magic and voilà!  Soon you will have delicious, freshly made waffle cones waiting for you to fill.  Do be cautious – the waffle iron gets very HOT!

It might take a little bit of practice figuring out what setting works best for the recipe you are using (I set my waffle iron around 3 to make these Coconut Waffle Cones).  Perfecting the art of rolling the cone does take some practice.  Once you have it figured out, you will transform the way you have been eating ice cream into something spectacular.
