My husband and I have a weight loss bet going on right now. I’ve been exercising a lot, but struggling to lose any weight. This post may have something to do with that… #icecreamaddict

I had a brilliant idea to make waffle cones without a waffle cone iron. I mean, how many people have a waffle cone iron? Plus, how hard could it be? After trying different recipes, which all ended in the same jumbled mess, including a whole (large) bottle of vanilla spilled all over the kitchen and in the tupperware cupboard, courtesy of my toddler, I surrendered! Here is one of my #pinterestfails waffle ice cream cones minus the “waffled” part. Don’t get me wrong, they tasted delicious, but they were not crispy, were a mess and we wasted more than I’d like to share…




So then I had another brilliant idea (my brain never shuts off)! Why not use flour tortillas to make edible ice cream bowls?! I asked my husband to pick up some small flour tortillas from the grocery store and he came home with these mini ones. I was totally impressed. I have never noticed this small of size before (6″), but they were perfect!

And so we got our homemade edible ice cream bowls after all! Keep reading for the recipe, they are super simple to make, my toddler even helped!

Ingredients for Edible Ice Cream Bowls

  • 6 (6″) flour tortillas
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • Pam Spray (optional)

Makes 6.


Step 1.

Preheat oven to 350 deg C and spray muffin tin with Pam. As long as your muffin tin is in good condition, (non stick), you don’t have to spray it.


Step 2.

Mix cinnamon and sugar in a dish and place on plate or container that the tortilla’s will fit into.


Step 3.

Microwave tortillas for approximately 10 seconds if there were in the fridge. This just makes it easier to form into muffin tins. Brush melted butter onto each side of the tortilla.


Step 4.

Place in cinnamon mixture, shake it a bit, then flip it over so both sides are lighting coated.


Step 5.

Press tortilla into muffin tin so the middle part is left open (for the ice cream to go in).


Step 6.

Bake for 15 minutes.

They are so simple your toddler can even make them!! This sweet girl is wearing her waterproof Sew Bright Apron that will be available soon! 


Step 7.

Let cool for 5-10 minutes.


Steps 8 through 10 are optional. 


Step 8.

If you’d like to sweeten your ice cream bowls even more, you can add chocolate and cover it with sprinkles, nuts or even coconut.


Step 9.

Melt chocolate chips or candy melts in microwave. Put in for 10-30 seconds at a time and stir between each time. It is important to stir each time because they may not look melted when they actually are. Brush top of bowls with melted chocolate.


Step 10.

Cover chocolate in sprinkles. Next time we are going to try coconut!


Step 11.

Fill with ice cream and enjoy! We made raspberry chocolate chip ice cream in our Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.


You can even eat them just like an ice cream cone!
