Red, White & Blueberry Cones

I went to the grocery store yesterday … so many berries are in season right now and on sale … buy one, get one free!  Red, white & blueberry cones were about to be created.

Here they are …

This is a very simple dessert and can be made early in the day and stored in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.

This is what you will need …

  • 12 Sugar Cones
  • 8 ounces melted white chocolate
  • Cheesecake flavored Instant Pudding (small package)
  • 1 – 3/4 cups Milk
  • 6 ounces raspberries
  • 6 ounces blueberries
  • Red or Blue Sprinkles
  • Whipped Cream

The cones can be made several days in advance and stored in an air tight container … it’s a real timesaver.  To make the cones … spoon melted chocolate in the cone … rotate it, to coat the entire inside … pour out the chocolate and tap the cone to remove excess chocolate … add sprinkles to the outside edge … set aside to let the chocolate harden up …

Make sure to check the inside for total chocolate coverage … because this seals the cone and won’t let the filling leak out … these cones are great for ice cream too!  Do you like my handy-dandy cone holder?  It is actually a barbecue tool for making jalapeno poppers … I love things that can be used for more than one thing … and the hubby has never used it …

Make the pudding (using 1 – 3/4 cups) following the directions on the package.  Fold in the berries … remember to reserve some for garnishing …

Fill the cones with the pudding mixture … you can store them in the fridge until you are ready to serve.  Garnish with whipped cream and reserved berries when ready to serve …

Perfect for a 4th of July gathering!

My honest opinion … I think these are great without pudding … just berries (a little sugar if needed) in a chocolate coated cone and topped with whipped cream … I added the pudding to make the family happy. 

I am looking forward to your honest opinions!

  2. Adorable. We do not have that particular flavor of jello here in HK so other ideas to mix in with the fruits? Maybe just a custard or may icecream? I am sure you will have a brilliant idea as usual… Take care, BAM
