No-Melt Dream Whipped Jell-O Cones

Make some No-Melt Dream Whipped Jell-O Cones this summer! Easy and fun to make & eat! At littlemisscelebration.comI always tend to get a bit nostalgic in the summer, remembering the lazy, summer days of my childhood, including some of my favorite treats. I originally shared this last year at Fresh Idea Studio and had to share this easy and fun treat with you! No-Melt Dream Whipped Jell-O Cones are perfect for summer and no baking needed! The kids will LOVE them, but you know what? So will you!

Dream Whip, a powdered,  whipped topping mix, was a convenience food that hit the market in the late ‘50s and I’m pretty sure it was a staple in almost every kitchen when I was a little girl. I didn’t even realize until last summer that Dream Whip was still available! I get a kick out of whipping Jell-O! Don’t lift the beaters with the mixer still running – yes, I’ve done that and whoa, flying Jell-O bits? Funny but not fun to clean up! :) Combined with Dream Whip and scooped into sugar cones, Dream Whipped Jell-O looks a lot like ice cream.

No-Melt Dream Whipped Jell-O Cones
Recipe will make approximately 12-18 cones

  • 1 Box Dream Whip Whipped Topping Mix (Two envelopes in a pack; use one pack)
  • ½ cup cold milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large box of regular Jell-O (8 ½ cup serving size) in your choice of flavor – I used strawberry!
  • 1 box of sugar ice cream cones
  • Maraschino cherries (Optional)

Prepare Jell-O according to package directions in a large, deep bowl. Chill until partially set or you can let the Jell-O set completely. We’re going whip the Jell-O-O with an electric mixer – if whipped after fully set, there will still be some small bits of Jell-O after whipping, which I think adds some pretty little pops of color. Once the Jell-O is set, whip it with an electric hand mixer. It will fluff up, become lighter in color and almost double in size.

Prepare Dream Whip. Mix one envelop of topping mix with ½ cup cold milk and ½ teaspoon of vanilla. Whip at low speed until blended, then whip at high speed until topping is thick and peaks form, about 4 minutes.

Using your electric mixer, mix the whipped Jell-O into the Dream Whip; mix the two together for a minute or so, until they are well blended. Put the mixture in the refrigerator to chill. If using maraschino cherries, let them drain on paper towels first.

I made some cone wrappers from sparkle cardstock by Die Cuts with a View. I cut the top of each with decorative edged scissors, folded them into cones and secured them with double-stick tape.

Use a small ice cream scoop to fill the cones with the whipped Jell-O and top with a maraschino cherry. These can be eaten just like an ice cream cone or use small, plastic ice cream spoons. Fill the sugar cones with Jell-O-O shortly before serving and keep them chilled; the cones will get soft if filled with whipped Jell-O for too long– but they’ll get eaten fast! Make the second package of Dream Whip and swirl some on top of the cones for extra pizzazz!

    • Christine says:

      If you have to add milk to the dream whip, then wouldn’t that make it not dairy free?

      • Hi Christine – the product itself says that it is non-dairy, though it is confusing. I’m going to take that out and thank you for letting me know, I appreciate it! Have a great weekend!
