I grew up on a remote street outside the city limits, so ice cream trucks were not a common occurrence. In fact, I can only remember a handful of times throughout my childhood when the ice cream truck would make it out to my neighborhood. The minute I heard that distinct music, I would scramble inside and dig through everything I could think of to find loose change. Then I’d back outside to meet the truck and buy myself a frozen treat.
These days, it seems even rarer to see an ice cream truck slowly driving through the streets. But guess what? It doesn’t matter, because you can make your own ice cream treats. (And don’t tell the ice cream man, but I think that these taste even better!)
Here’s how you make them. You will need chocolate chips, peanut butter, chopped peanuts, peanut butter cup ice cream and sugar cones.
Melt 4 tablespoons of the chocolate in a food-safe, resealable plastic bag; squirt the chocolate into the bottom of the cones. This stops any ice cream from leaking out of the bottom of the cone. (Plus, it’s my favorite part to eat!)
