Iced Coffee Slushie Waffle Cone With Whipped Coconut Cream & Mini Choc Chunk Cookie
I'm so excited to share with you these Iced Coffee Slushie Waffle Cones with Whipped Coconut Cream and Choc Chunk Cookies. Phew, that is a mouthful but these little beauties are that. The perfect mouthful of pure decadent goodness. Photographing these babies made my tummy rumble even though I had just had lunch. Who could pass up something as good as these? Not me. Do you know the reason why I get up to go to the gym at 5.30am most mornings (not just for me time - although that is a great excuse .too). It's so I can eat more glorious food like this. Ha. Mind you doing 80 burpees like I did on Monday could have easily been avoided. I really hate burpees, the assault bike and basically anything that makes me want to vomit. That's what I get for being a glutton.
Being a food blogger has its downfalls and that's testing all the yummy food coming out of the kitchen. It's hard stopping at one taste test when it tastes just so good. Like these cones. I had to have a little lick of the chocolate when I was covering the cones, I had to taste the mini choc chunk cookie dough plus one when they were warm out of the oven. I can't resist warm chocolate chunk cookies out of the oven. I am weak. Then a little taste test of the whipped coconut cream and when I made the iced coffee slushie filling. They all needed to be tasted I tell you. It's so it can be perfect for me to give the recipe to you guys.
Without such testing, I may not be 100% happy with the final recipe. So in the name of a good recipe, I present these cones to you. I've taste tested the heck out of them for you. Hehe. So let me tell you what this little beauty has in store for you. The waffle cones are coated inside with a glorious coating of dark chocolate and dunked into sprinkles to edge the top. All in the name of sprinkle bling.
The scrummy iced coffee slushy filling is perfect on a hot day and great for that caffeine kick. Lots of ice, a touch of maple and some good quality instant coffee. This cone is my pimped up version of a fancy iced coffee. Make sure you slurp it out with a straw.
To top this crazy concoction I whipped up some coconut cream to smooth luscious waves and piped it on top of the cone drizzled with a little more chocolate. Can never have too much chocolate.
To crown this masterpiece I finished it with a mini choc chunk cookie. Because what good is an iced coffee without something else to nibble on. The whole recipe is dairy free. It could be gluten free if you can find gluten free waffle cones or you could simply serve it in a bowl without the waffle cone and drizzle in LOTS of chocolate to make up for it. Sound like a great idea.
I know it is winter here in my side of the world but for those who are enjoying sweat filled days and balmy nights, this would make a really great dessert. For those who are still wearing a million layers. Our time is coming to enjoy the warmer weather again very soon but in the meantime don't let the cold weather put you off. Make my Iced Coffee Slushie Waffle Cone with Whipped Coconut Cream & Mini Choc Chunk Cookies ASAP regardless of what the weather is doing outside.
