Caramel Cone Soft Serve Sundae With A Twist

Everyone loves a good waffle cone, especially when it's overflowing with your favorite flavor of soft serve ice cream. But for the sundae fans out there, soft serve doesn't quite hit the mark  even if it does come close. There's something extra special about mixing together different ice cream flavors, seeing all of the toppings pile up, and pouring syrup over the whole shebang! Because we love both soft serve and sundaes so much, we came up with a technique to load up your waffle cones, sundae-style! This delicious frozen treat is served on a gorgeous caramel cone, stuffed with Nutella and raspberry syrup, and even topped off with some additional treats for good measure. We've got a real soft spot for these caramel cone sundaes, and we think you will too!

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Difficulty Level: Advanced

You'll Need:

For the caramel cone soft serve:

  • 4 waffle cones
  • ⅔ cup hard caramel candies
  • ¼ cup Nutella
  • 1 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1 cup lime sherbet
  • 1 cup strawberry ice cream
  • raspberry syrup
  • chocolate syrup
  • nut topping


  • paper cup
  • food storage bag
  • 4 small bowls

Here's How:

1. For the waffle cones, heat the hard caramel candies in a sauce pan on the stove and flip the 4 small bowls over onto your work surface. Lightly grease the bottom of the bowls with some vegetable oil and position the waffle cones upside down on top. Once the caramel has melted, remove it from the heat and use a spoon to drizzle the melted caramel around both the waffle cones and the small bowls. Let the caramel cool for about 5 minutes, then gently remove the caramel waffle cone from the bowl.

2. Flip a paper cup over onto your work surface and make a small incision in the bottom. Insert the tip of the waffle cone into the cut in the paper cup and fill the caramel waffle cone with Nutella.

3. Cut the top off of the empty water bottle and take off the cap.

4. Cut a star shape out of the bottle cap.

5. Put the cap back onto the neck of the plastic bottle and cut 1 corner off of a food storage bag. Push the top of the bottle through the hole in the plastic bag so that the star-shaped nozzle sticks out.

6. Fill the food storage bag with the frozen desserts, alternating between scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt, lime sherbet, and strawberry ice cream.

7. Pipe the soft serve twist into the stuffed caramel cone.

8. Use the handle of a small spoon to poke a hole in the center of the soft serve twist and fill it with raspberry syrup. Close up the top with a bit more soft serve, drizzle chocolate syrup over the top, and sprinkle with nut topping.

This loaded caramel cone soft serve sundae is as delicious as it is impressive. If you prefer other flavors or toppings, feel free to change up the recipe however you'd like and make a soft serve sundae with your own personal twist!
