Dipped cones + Hiland + summer traditions.

I adore summer time and everything that it entails. I love the warm weather, the days that never end, baseball, pool time, our trips to Silver Dollar City, late lunches, movie days, sleep overs with cousins, fresh summer tomatoes from our garden, and our traditions. 

One summer tradition we have is eating ice cream on the front porch. There is just something about sitting on our front stoop with the warm summer breeeze blowing in while we enjoy a sweet treat. 


This past week I decided to get creative with a new fun ice cream flavor from Hiland Dairy. The flavor itself,  Outlaw Run, was amazing...it didn't need any improvement...so I decided to spice up the cones for my kiddos. I made dipped chocolate cones with sprinkles. 

It was simple. 

You'll need: 
Cones 
1/2 cup of chocolate chips (melted) 
1 tbsp of oil or peanut butter (to help melt the chocolate) 
sprinkles 
Hiland Dairy ice cream

Melt chocolate chips. I placed mine in the microwave for about 1 min. Then add 1 tbsp. peanut butter to help melt the chocolate smoothly. Then dip the cone into the melted chocolate and then into the sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to harded before filling with ice cream and serving. 

I prefer Hiland Dairy ice cream for a few reasons. First, it tastes amazing! It's creamy, smooth and flavorful. Its made from pure Hiland Dairy milk, fresh and local from our farmer-owners, that contains no artificial growth hormones. Plus! It's always tested for antibiotics. Furthermore, Hiland Dairy is committed to sustainability to minimize waste and environmental impact. 
 
    

Overall this was a HUGE hit with my kiddos. Sometimes the littlest things can make a huge impact on our memories and traditions! Who knows maybe dipped cones will become a new staple in our home?! 

On a cute note...we are lucky enough to live close to Silver Dollar City...and all of my kiddos recognized the ride and logo on Hiland Dairy Outlaw Run bix. Have you ever been to Silver Dollar City?
