Brownie cones

Are you a brownie corner kind of person or do you like the center? Do you like the brownies cake-like or gooey? These ice cream cone brownies have everything inside.

From a crispy chewy top to a gooey center and a cake-like bottom all surrounded by a crisp and chewy ice cream cone, you have an incredible treat in your hands.

Of course, if you don’t want it as gooey and good in the center you can always cook it a little longer for a more cake-like center inside.

Tips for making brownie ice cream cones

The trick to getting the brownies not “too full” is to try and stick with a 2/3rd of the way full method. Unfortunately, with the unique shape of cones, it can be a tad tricky trying to find that point.

I’ve found that by looking at the cones from an angle I can use the bottom ridge of where the cone widens as a measuring gauge. Bring the batter up to that point, maybe just a tiny bit over, and you should be good.

Getting the cones to stay upright while baking can also be tricky. Some good suggestions include:

  • Placing the cones upright in a muffin tin.
  • Covering a baking dish with heavy duty foil and poking a hole in the foil for the cones to stand in so that they’re held in place while baking.

How to transport ice cream cone brownies

If you want to take a bunch of these cuties to the next get-together or party, you can find transportation to be a bit difficult.

  1. When they’re unfrosted simply decorate them there and keep them stored in an airtight container.
  2. If they’re frosted, a baking dish covered in foil, with foil poked holes for the cones to stand in will work.
  3. Another great idea is to buy a disposable aluminum baking pan, flipping it upside down on a large baking sheet and poking holes in it for the cones to stand in.

How to make ice cream cone brownies

Take a box of brownie mix and prepare it according to the cake-like instructions (the one wanting 3 eggs).

Place your ice cream cones in the baking dish of choice and spoon the batter inside. You want it to come up to the bottom of the wide ridge. If you need an exact measurement, it’s about 3 tablespoons.

Bake the cupcakes for 25 minutes at 350F degrees for a gooey center cupcake.

30 minutes of longer if you want the cakey center- double check it’s done when a toothpick comes out clean.

For a gooey brownie, the toothpick test is not needed.

Let cool for about 5 minutes or longer (your choice) and serve with a scoop of delicious vanilla ice cream on top. Enjoy!
