There’s no need to hold this ice cream cone, it fits right on the tip of your finger! A chef from New Zealand created this sweet treat. He says the cone, which slips right on your fingertip, was designed so it doesn’t leak.

Instead of pasta, this spaghetti is made from thin strands of vanilla ice cream. And it’s topped with homemade strawberry sauce that looks a lot like tomato sauce!

Ice cream tacos

If you visit this food truck, you’ll get ice cream served up like a taco. A waffle cone is made in the shape of a taco shell, then it’s filled with ice cream. The taco can then be topped with everything from nuts and coconut, to candy and even pieces of cereal!

Ice cream burrito

Cotton candy makes everything better! To make this ice cream dessert, first cotton candy is flattened out. Then ice cream, candy and sprinkles are placed on it. The whole thing is rolled up to make the ultimate sweet burrito.

There’s no actual fish in this dessert, and it doesn’t taste like fish either. Phew! It’s just made to look like fish and chips. First, an ice cream called Phish and Chips is used — it’s chocolate-flavoured with marshmallow swirls and pieces of chocolate-shaped fish. The ice cream is covered in batter and then fried up. It’s served with pretzels on the side, as well as raspberry ketchup and a sweet dipping sauce.
