Homemade Drumsticks

homemade drumstick recipeWe had such a good weekend. On Sunday, we decided to take a trip to Richmond. It is only about an hour and half from us, and I was there recently to visit the Sabra Headquarters. When I was there, I knew that I wanted to bring my family back to explore some more. Richmond really has a lot to offer. Great restaurants, beautiful museums, and the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. We went to see the Butterflies LIVE! Exhibit and had such a nice (albeit HOT) afternoon strolling through the gardens. The Children’s Garden is worth the trip all by itself. They have a beautiful tree house, a splash park, and a cottage that I want to move into. The kids loved it, and we will go back soon.

richmond virginiaRemember last week when I made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream? It was delicious and perfect all on its own, but I wanted to make my husband one of his favorite treats. He loves Drumsticks, and I knew that I could easily make them at home. My mom has been making homemade Magic Shell for as long as I can remember. It is two ingredients, that simple. People ooh and ahh when you serve it to them. It is so easy. Melt one stick butter into a bag of chocolate chips and you have Magic Shell. If it should harden, you can just melt it again over very gentle heat. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for another day. I loved how fun these Drumsticks were, you can make a bunch and keep them in the freezer and pull them out as needed. So fun for summer barbecues. The kids thought that I was the most amazing mom on the planet when I pulled these out of the freezer after dinner.

Next time, I would use regular sugar cones. I sent my husband to the store for cones and he came home with waffle cones, they taste great, but are a bit large. Sugar cones are a better size for kids. If you don’t have jimmies, you could use nuts, mini chips, coconut, anything you want to decorate. Mix and match ice cream flavors, how good would mint chocolate chip be?

    Genius!!! Would be so special to serve at a child’s birthday party – or any summer party with kids!!!

    I love this! I just made homemade ice cream too, and bought waffle cones! I love drumsticks but they’re so chemically, it’d be nice to make them totally homemade like this.

    A homemade Drumstick is worth every ounce of (albeit minimal) effort. πŸ™‚

    Oh I love the look of the waffle cones! This is such a great idea. I usually have my ice cream in a cup, but these photos make me want to convert to eating it out of a cone πŸ™‚

    Do you live around here? I love that garden, we are members, so will be back soon. Next time I will bring suits for the kids so they can splash around.

    Great idea! But, a drumstick is not a drumstick without the bit of hardened chocolate goodness at the bottom tip of the cone!

  32. bakedbree

    August 3rd, 2013 at 11:34 pm

    You could add a spoonful to the bottom if you wanted to.

    I would never think about putting butter in chocolate to make a shell unless I was trying to loosen up the chocolate a little bit or add a bit of gloss. May I ask what is she function of the butter here?

  34. bakedbree

    February 21st, 2014 at 8:33 am

    The butter is what makes it harden. Why it works, I don’t know, but it does.

    This is great! My son has nut allergies so this will be a wonderful treat for him!
