Vegan Drumsticks

Vegan Ice Cream Drum Stick recipe.
  • Yield: 4 servings


1 quart-size container of Soy Dream Vanilla Ice Cream (or your favorite dairy-free ice cream)
1cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips
2tablespoons coconut oil
1package Ice Cream Sugar Cones (you’ll only need four for this recipe)
1/2cup finely chopped raw almonds


  1. Place the Vegan Ice Cream on the counter to allow it to soften.
  2. Combine the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe container. Place in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. Remove and stir and repeat this step until the chocolate chips and coconut oil have melted. Stir well to combine. Set aside.
  3. Pour about 1 tablespoon of the dark chocolate chip mixture into the bottom of four sugar cones. I placed the cones in small glasses to keep them upright. You can also spread some of the melted chocolate along the inside of the sugar cone to add a little extra fun flavor. Place them in the freezer so the chocolate can harden, anywhere from 1 – 5 minutes.
  4. Use an ice cream scooper or a large spoon to ladle the softened ice cream into the prepared sugar cones. Make sure to leave a nice dollop of ice cream at the top as well. Place these in the freezer to allow the ice cream to firm up. This is where those small glasses will come in handy. I just put the drumstick in a small glass to hold it and then put the entire thing in the freezer so it could sit up right. Allow another 5 minutes or so for the ice cream to firm up.
  5. Spread a generous amount of the chocolate mixture over one drumstick and roll that in the chopped nuts while the chocolate is still spreadable. Place that one back in the freezer. Repeat with each of the drumsticks.
  6. Place the drumsticks back in the freezer. Once they’ve firmed up, you can place them in a plastic bag or container for storage. When you’re ready to eat them, remove them from the freezer about 5 – 10 minutes to allow the ice cream to soften before eating.
