Choco Tacos are ice cream boats with waffle shells that are dipped in chocolate and nuts (or sprinkles. 

Why This Choco Taco Recipe?

Choco Taco ice cream is a wonderful dessert idea any time of year, but it is especially appreciated during the summer. 

These delicious ice cream treats are made with a light waffle cone, filled with ice cream and then dipped in chocolate. Of course, the final layer is sprinkles or nuts or both, making this a unique and truly fun dessert.

These are not difficult to make but they do take a little planning. I like making the waffle cones the day before and then making the choco taco ice creams is easy!

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

Timesaving Tips to make this perfect every time

  • I recommend making the taco shells ahead of time (as in the day before) for ease of preparation when ready to serve.
  • Make sure when you cook your waffle taco shells, that they are firm not soft.
  • If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can use a crepe pan or small skillet.
  • Candy melts work better than using chocolate chips.
