Chocolate-Dipped Waffle Cone Coffee Cups (Inspired by Alfred Coffee)

Chocolate Dipped Waffle Cone Coffee CupsAs I was scrolling through Instagram one day, I discovered that this amazing coffee shop in L.A., Alfred Coffee (located in Melrose) makes chocolate-dipped waffle cone cups for their coffee!

Well…discovered doesn’t really say much about how I really reacted when I first saw the photo. At first, I was in complete shock and my jaw dropped. Then, I yelled something along the lines of ‘HOLY SH!T’ out loud. And finally, I proceeded to stalking many photos of these bad boys on Instagram. There was so much excitement, it’s kind of a blur to me now.

Unless you don’t like chocolate (I know a few of you weirdos out there exist. Sorry for calling you a weirdo, I respect your tastes), you just might be crazy to say no to one of these chocolate waffle cone cups. Not only the brilliant minds at Alfred Coffee create a way to eat the cup your coffee comes in (because self-contained food and drinks are amazing), they found a way to use chocolate AND waffle cones with coffee. Basically they made consuming chocolate, coffee, and waffles at ones not only possible, but mouthwatering. Coffee, chocolate, and waffles/waffle cones are three things I absolutely love.

While I love visiting L.A. and have visited twice already this year, I can’t really fly down just to try out these waffle cups (I wish). So I had to do the next best thing and try making these for myself at home.

Surprisingly, you only need three ingredients to get a smooth chocolate-dipped cone.

Chocolate-Dipped Waffle Cone Coffee Cups (Inspired by Alfred Coffee)


  • Recipe slightly adapted from
  • 6 Ice cream cones (cake cones)
  • 8 oz. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil


  1. Melt the coconut oil until liquid.
  2. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips, and stir the chocolate until smooth. I recommend using a double boiler and not microwaving the chocolate chips so that you get the chocolate to be as smooth as possible.
  3. Add the coconut oil to the chocolate chips and stir until smooth again.
  4. Put a tablespoon of chocolate into a cone and swirl until the entire interior of the cone is covered in chocolate. Keep adding more chocolate as needed and continue to swirl
  5. If you'd like, turn the waffle cone upside-down and dip directly into the chocolate to cover the rim. Then, set upright on plates covered with wax or parchment paper.
  6. Continue to do with all the cones.
  7. Let the cones sit in the fridge or freezer until the chocolate has completely hardened. Use any leftover chocolate to make more cones or use it as a chocolate dip for fruit!
  8. Pour your favorite coffee into the cones and serve immediately! If you wait to drink the coffee, the chocolate will melt.
