Chocolate Dipped Cones

A great way to serve ice cream is in a chocolate dipped cone.

Place a 1/2 Cup of semisweet chocolate pieces in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate at 70 percent power or medium high heat for 1 minute. Stir and continue microwaving for 1 to 3 minutes or until the chocolate is smooth.

Dip the cones into the melted chocolate about 1/3 of the way up the cone.

If the chocolate is too thick, stir in 1 teaspoon of melted shortening. If desired sprinkle with crushed oreos, sprinkles etc while still wet.

Place the cones top side down on wax paper until the chocolate is set.

Make your own homemade ice cream to put in your cones!
