Irresistible gluten-free waffle cone icecreams!

So the weather's hotted up and everyone's flagging down the icecream van for a 99.

That is, everyone except coeliacs like me who are boiling hot (and not just with the weather but also inner rage! Why can't icecream vans all do gluten-free cones? Why?!).

Fancy making these?

But never mind that. Why not arm yourself with some decent supermarket gluten-free waffle cones and make your own?

I bought mine from Tesco. So far each pack I've purchased (and I must confess to buying rather a lot) has had in-tact cones (rather than the sorry-for-themselves broken cones I've found elsewhere).

Many icecream tubs are gluten-free so that wasn't difficult (although obviously check the brand you're buying, especially if it includes dangers like "cookies and cream"; vanilla's usually safe but don't take anything for granted).

I added mini meringues on top (these ones were from Aldi) and also hid some mini marshmallows in the cones (these were from Asda but I've yet to find a marshmallow that isn't gluten-free*).

I've been known to add peanut butter and chocolate to the bottom of cones, too (I mean, what's an icecream if you can't pimp it out?!).

Can you tell it's 38 degrees Celsius?! My face says it all!

Below is a super quick video showing you how I made 4 icecreams at once. Let me know when you make yours!

* Boring (but necessary) warning! As always, check the ingredients and allergens; always avoid 'may contains' and check every time you buy in case the recipe and/or manufacturing methods have changed.
