Ingredients:

Chocolate Coating:

  • 4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3-4 teaspoons corn syrup, or liquid sugar substitute

Caramel Sauce:

  • 3/4 sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 4 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • Bowl of ice for ice bath
  • Package of sugar or waffle cones or bowls
  • 1/2 gallon of your favorite ice cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine your coconut oil, cocoa powder and syrup until well combined.  
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and layout your desired number of cones.  
  3. Taking a pastry brush, paint the inside of each cone with the chocolate mixture.
  4. Put the whole tray in the freezer for 15-20 minutes, to allow the chocolate to set up.
  5. Next place a small saucepan over medium high heat.
  6. Add your sugar, stirring frequently until the sugar is completely melted.  It will melt in stages and get crumbly before becoming completely liquid, so it you have something that looks sandy, don't give up and keep stirring.  You can turn up the heat if you want, but be very careful the bottom doesn't scorch as sugar can burn very quickly.
  7. Once your sugar has completely melted, and began to take on an amber color, carefully add your butter.  It will cause the sugar to bubble rapidly, so keep stirring but be very careful not to burn yourself.  
  8. Once the butter has become completely incorporated, remove from heat.
  9. Slowly add the heavy cream.
  10. Once the cream has been combined, place your whole sauce pan into your bowl of ice, and keep stirring, to bring the caramel down to room temperature.  You don't want it to get too chilled, or it will become difficult to manipulate.
  11. By now, the chocolate in your cones should be ready, so go ahead and  take the cones out of the freezer,
  12. Put a dollop of caramel in the bottom of each cone or bowl.  
  13. Top each dollop of caramel with approximately 1 tablespoon of nuts.  
  14. You can either put the cones back in the freezer for use later that day, or use them immediately.
  15. Top each cone with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
  16. Drizzle with the remaining chocolate coating, caramel and nuts.
