Ice cream is probably one of my favorite foods, along with muffins, spaghetti, and peppers. You know I had to say peppers.. otherwise all of my fav foods would be junk food and that’s certainly not the kind of eating I want to encourage. So be sure to eat your vegetables before eating dessert :)

If you like ice cream, which I hope you do.. how do you like your ice cream?

Soft and somewhat melty? Or perfectly frozen with no signs of melting?

I would rather struggle to get the ice cream out of the container because it’s so frozen than eat fluffy ice cream. Fluffy, soft, and soupy are pretty much the words I would use to describe melty ice cream. And in my book it’s no good.

But there is something even worse than melty ice cream. Trying to photograph melty ice cream. Booo.

But if you caught the title of this recipe at the very beginning, you would have noticed that it said “chocolate vanilla cheesecake ice cream cones.”

I’m not talking about cheesecake ice cream. Although that is really good. This recipe is no bake chocolate vanilla cheesecake swirled into ice cream cones. It’s possibly the cutest way to eat cheesecake, don’t you think?! And.. it doesn’t melt!! A food photographer’s dream!

Normally a no bake cheesecake involves cheesecake and graham cracker crumbs in a glass or a jar. But a waffle ice cream cone is a good stand in for graham cracker crumbs. And now we have a portable, spoon-less cheesecake!

  1. These are just simply perfect Beth! The kids would go wild over them. I’ll definitely have to try. :-)

    • I can just imagine all of the silly things they would say.. it’s ice cream! no! it’s cheesecake! But its in an ice cream cone!

  2. These are so much fun, and I adore the fact that they are actually cheesecake (but they’d fool anyone since they look like perfect soft serve)!

  3. This is for sure the cutest way to eat cheesecake!! So fun!

  4. Beth, this ice-cream look amazing. They are so perfect. Your pictures are also so gorgeous. How did you take these perfect pictures? I hate to take ice-cream and popsicle pictures because they melt very fast. It is just a disaster… hahhahahahhah!

  5. Everything about these is perfect! I love the cheesecake filling and the extra crunch the cones add is the best. So cute too!

    • Now that you mention it Ashley, I think I might prefer the crunch of the cone versus graham cracker crumbs!

  6. These are so awesome Beth! Ice cream is by far my favorite thing to eat, but cheesecake comes in a close second. So much cuteness happening in these cones!

  7. This is such a fun idea and your pictures are gorgeous!! I’m going to add this recipe to my end-of-school pool party that my daughter throws every year. The kids are gonna love them!

  8. BETH! This is such a neat idea! I saw this photo a little while back and have been looking forward to this post! And I’m blown away with this clever trick. They look gorgeous and tastes amazing I bet. You are a smart cookie!

    • I didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag too early.. but now the secret is out!

  9. YUM! These look too good! I always look forward to your posts, relish!

  10. I love reading your posts to see how you have made your latest creation. I have to admit my favorite ice cream is soft serve swirl, but mine never lasts long enough to melt :)

  11. These are the prettiest ice cream cones I think I have ever seen! Sooo cute! Pinned!

  12. I like my ice cream both ways, but yeah, I feel you on trying to photograph melty ice cream. What a drag! Cheesecake in a cone sounds like the perfect solution to me. And girl, that SWIRL! Impressive!

  13. This is seriously the best of so many worlds. Cheesecake + Ice Cream Cones + No Bake. You are making my heart happy! And oh…I take my ice cream melty please ;) As in I put mine in the microwave. Am I weird? Don’t answer that.

  14. I have to admit, I’m not one for mushy ice cream either! I absolutely love that you swirled two cheesecake flavors into one here!

    • Good! We can go on an ice cream date and both enjoy our really frozen ice cream!

  15. This is an amazing idea! I have to try it sometime. X
