Edible coconut shells with ice cream inside
  (+3, -2)
(+3, -2)
  [vote for,

Coconut ice cream encased in a delicious crunchy shell (Graham-cracker consistency, if it wouldn't get too soggy), in the shape of a coconut. Sort of like Cadbury's Creme Eggs. Only larger. And coconutty.

This is actually a group idea from the Halfbakery Picnic, developed jointly by buddha_pest, snarfyguy, Sari (who doesn't have an account), and yours truly.

[Any suggestions that this is a recipe will be dealt with summarily.]

Closest I could find to 'how cornettos work' http://www.open2.ne...etails/tv_index.htm
At the bottom of the page is a documentary that I saw recently, outlining the history of ice-cream and how cornettos were lined with chocolate to prevent the wafer becoming soggy [Jinbish, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]


       whats the hair made from? sounds yummy.

       Light chocolate shavings?
thumbwax, Jun 08 2003

       thumb, no. let them do the woik - for goodness sake.   

       they just wasted the day - chatting about unimportant stuff like beer and sex and blissmiss etc.

       The Malaysian Gods have answered... again. WB
thumbwax, Jun 08 2003

       blissmiss, where you been?
po, Jun 08 2003

       well stop that. what original ideas have ever come from reflecting?   

       reflecting a little - jutta has infinite patience - reflecting...

       Where are the pictures from the picnic?
Was custard served?
And if not, why not?

       The pictures were posted before this idea: you're looking in the wrong place.
DrCurry, Jun 09 2003

       baked innit ? sounds like them rock hard desserts wot you get in indian restaurants....
pjd, Jun 09 2003

       [DrCurry]: Boo! Ok - that was fair enough. Still, I like it.
Jinbish, Jun 09 2003

       I'm not normally one to complain, but I've just had an attack scepticism - where is the innovation?   

       Walls 'Cornetto' conquered the wafer/sogginess problem a while back by lining the wafer cone with chocolate. Don't get me wrong - its a great idea, and I would give it a shot at living off it.
Jinbish, Jun 09 2003

       The innovation is doing it (ostrich) egg instead of cone-shaped. And using coconut ice cream. And the Graham-cracker shell.
DrCurry, Jun 09 2003

       Ok [DrC]. That'll do me.   

       [waugs]: It's not up for discussion.
Jinbish, Jun 09 2003

       In Gibraltar we already have this ice cream, which we get from Spain. It's made by Frigo (the Spanish version of Wall's) and its an actual Coconut shell filled with coconut ice cream.   

       Its gorgeous and afterwards you can wash the shell out and make candle-holders.   

       There are lemon and orange versions too, but you can't really wash and keep the orange skins after.

       Mmmm. Love coconut. Love graham cracker crust. Love this idea. Add some Caramel (not Butterscotch)and some Chocolate (Milk Chocolate only) and it would be Mmmm Mmmm good.   

       This could be the official dessert of the Halfbakery Picnic -- Tiki Theme.
