Mint Chocolate Chip Cone Cakes

Mint Chocolate Chip Cone Cakes

Calling all mint chocolate chip fans!  This icing is going to be your new favorite!  My husband has been out of the country for a while now and we're missing him like crazy.  He loves mint chocolate chip ice cream, so I wanted to find a recipe that I knew he'd love.  I'm not a huge fan of mint chocolate chip but guys - this is unbelievably delicious.  When I tried it I was shocked at how good it is.  I put about half in the freezer to use when he returns later this week, and the other half is for us to enjoy until then.

I used devil's food chocolate cake mix and brown colored cones (they are not chocolate flavored, as some have asked.) While the cone cakes were in the oven, I began mixing the icing.  The recipe is here.  

I want to point out one note of caution.  If you put chocolate chips in the icing (the last step in the recipe) - you will not be able to pipe the icing using a piping tip.  I learned the hard way (then was like, duh!)  The chips clog the tip.  If you plan to use a piping tip, keep the chips out of the icing and sprinkle them on top, as shown in the photos. 

Enjoy and happy baking!  :)
