These allergy free waffle cones are the perfect vehicle for allergy free ice cream. While they do take some time to make, they're worth it!
Allergy free waffle cones (free of the top 8 allergens) can be difficult to find at the grocery store. Though, I see them more often than I used to. I'm a big fan of ice cream cones and kitchen gadgets, so I just had to buy a waffle cone maker and try making my own allergy free cones.
I was skeptical that these weren't going to turn out but was pleasantly surprised when my brand new waffle cone maker produced a perfect cone. My then two year old couldn't wait for me to make allergy free ice cream so he had a plain cone right away.
I knew I had a winner when he said, "Mmmm, Mommy, this is good!" With that my heart melted like ice cream on a hot, summer day!
If you miss ice cream cones, purchasing a waffle cone maker might just be the ticket. Sure, it's another kitchen gadget that you'll have to find a space for and it does require a small investment up front but the satisfaction of filling yet another void in your or your child's list of treats is well worth it!
