This summer, try a new trick with this ever- popular combination. First, dip your cones into a rich chocolate mixture, then pile them high with a strawberry-lemon ice cream thaf s studded with grapes. Garnish the top of each tempting confection with a few more grapes. An extra attraction of these cones is that gelatin, which makes the ice-cream light and fluffy, also keeps it from melting and dripping. l RApE CREAM CONES '/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces 1 pkg. ice cream cones (12) 2 pkgs. (3 oz. each) lemon-flavor gelatin 1 cup boiling water 1 quart strawberry ice cream, softened 3 cups white seedless grapes Melt chocolate over hot, not boiling, water. Stir until smooth.
