Who else had those delicious Nestle Drumsticks growing up? You know the ones with the hard crunchy chocolate shell filled with vanilla? Well I have recreated these with lower carb ice cream, 4 ingredient homemade chocolate sauce and salty chopped peanuts.
In case you haven't stepped outside lately (which is very possible these days)... IT'S SUMMER AND IT'S HOT! The past couple of weeks of this summer have been crazy hot and there's nothing a crave more on a hot summer day than ICE CREAM!
I love these because they're hand held, can be made ahead of time and recreating them is a fun (a little messy) family activity!
This 4 ingredient chocolate sauce is drastically lower in carbs than the store-bought variety and hardens perfectly over that big scoop of vanilla ice cream and seals in everyones favorite crunchy outside.
In order to freeze these I actually made use of an overturned old egg carton.
Simply poke a hole and inserted the cone through it so it didn't fall over in the fridge. If you don't have one of these on hand a short and narrow cup (like a juice glass) will do the trick as well!
Homemade Healthy Drumstick
2 cones | Prep time: 20 minutes
Notes: mix up the crunchy toppings and the ice cream flavors to mix things up. Drizzle some of the chocolate sauce in the cone for a surprise inside!
1 tbsp powdered peanutbutter
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp sugar
2-3 tbsp milk (I used unsweetened original almond milk)
1/2 oz salted peanuts, finely chopped
2 sugar cones
1-2 cups ice cream
Whisk powdered peanutbutter, cocoa powder, sugar and milk together in a bowl.
Dip cones into the chocolate mixture to lightly coat the top.
Place cones in holders and place in freezer for 5 minutes until sauce has solidified.
Remove cones from freezer and evenly fill each with ice cream.
Return the cones to the freezer for 15 minutes until ice cream has solidified.
While ice cream is freezing, chop peanuts finely and arrange on a plate.
Remove the cones from the freezer and roll them in the remaining chocolate sauce until fully covered. Then roll the chocolate covered cones in the peanuts.
Return cones to the freezer until fully solidified and you are ready for dessert (at least 20 minutes)!
