How do you make edible ice cream bowls?
Edible ice cream bowls are pretty easy to make and you can fill them with ice cream, fresh fruit or both! They are most often made with chocolate or ice cream cone batter, but I think they are even better when made with coconut.
They are lighter and more delicate which gives them a more elegant touch for a dinner party.
You’ll use sweetened shredded coconut and mix with egg whites, almond extract and flour.
Press this mixture into a jumbo muffin tin. (This link goes to Amazon where I am an affiliate partner) I think the portions work better that way, especially if you want to serve ice cream inside them.
Then bake them and leave at room temperature until ready to serve. The nice thing about this dessert is that both the ice cream bowls and the sauce can be made ahead of time and then all you have to do is scoop in the ice cream and serve!
