Public Lives, Secret Recipes

If your Instagram feed is anything like ours, it’s constantly being taken over by the latest food trends. The most recent being any sort of ice cream cone that isn’t made from your standard cone ingredients. So why not hop on the bandwagon & create our own unique ice cream cone recipe. After all, most of the ones we see are in other countries & let’s face it, as much as we’d like to hop on the next plane to Australia that isn’t the most realistic. So here you have it folks, our very own invention for a cinnamon roll ice cream cone that YOU can easily recreate at home!

Take your favorite cinnamon roll recipe (we provided ours below) & fill it with all the ice cream & toppings your little heart desires. These smell so delicious we almost missed our window to even take any pictures of them! As if you too wouldn’t devour these immediately, keep in mind since they are hollow they will go stale quicker. Aka let them cool completely so the ice cream doesn’t melt, but do eat within 24 hours for ultimate freshness. Enjoy!


for dough:

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light almond milk (buttermilk will work too!)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour

for filling:

  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbsp cinnamon, to taste


  1. Over low heat, combine butter & milk in medium saucepan. Stir until the butter is liquid & then pour mixture into large mixing bowl.
