WW Recipe of the Day: Fresh Fruit Filled Chocolate Dipped Cones
Today I'm sharing a fun way to eat your fresh fruit: fruit filled chocolate dipped ice cream cones!
I've discovered that adding just a little bit of dark chocolate to a fresh fruit dessert is a simple way to boost both its flavor and nutrition. With this recipe, a little melted chocolate transforms ordinary cake cones and some fruit into a decadent no-bake delight.
Is Dark Chocolate Healthy?
Studies show dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients, is a powerful antioxidant, can help curb cravings, and may even improve your brain function. Go dark chocolate!
Making delicious desserts doesn't have to be complicated or require a serious time commitment. Recipes like this one keep the ingredients to a minimum and are flexible so you can simply use what you find in your pantry.
Get creative with your toppings. Try shredded coconut, chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, mini M&Ms, cookie crumbs, pomegranate seeds, or even bee pollen.
You can make the cones up ahead or get everyone involved to dip and decorate their way.

How to Make Fruit-Filled Chocolate Dipped Cones
Step 1: Gather and prepare all ingredients.
Step 2: Place the chocolate and coconut oil in a small but deep microwave safe bowl . Heat in 15 second intervals until melted. Stir to combine.
Step 3: Dip each cone into the chocolate
and immediately into the sprinkles or topping of your choice.
Step 4: Set the dipped cones on wax paper to firm.
Step 5: Wash all berries. For any larger fruit (like strawberries), cut into bite-size pieces. Mix berries together with mint, if using.
Step 6: Fill each cone with berries and serve.
Recipe Notes, Substitutions & Variations
- To keep the sugar, calories and WW points low, I used plain cake cones. For a sweeter, fancier treat substitute sugar or waffle cones.
- Use any type of firm fruit. Simply slice it into bite size pieces.
- Substitute white chocolate, milk chocolate or semi-sweet for the dark.
- Get creative with your toppings. Try shredded coconut, chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, mini M&Ms, cookie crumbs, pomegranate seeds, or even bee pollen.
