There aren’t too many nuggets.
Dairy Queen is a magical part of summer, and the most fun to have at DQ might be on the secret menu. From vintage Jack and Jill Sundae and Peanut Butter Bash to Butterbeer Blizzard, some of the best things to eat at Dairy Queen aren’t widely known.
The latest off-menu item that has received rave reviews is the Sprinkle Core Dipped Cone. This genius upgrade to the traditional cone creates a nugget core in the center of the ice cream, leading to a brilliant swirl of nuggets. But if you want it, you’re going to have to know how to order it the right way.
How to order a sprinkled core hardened cone
It’s pretty simple, according to this TikTok posted by @dqwarrenburg.
- Order your Dairy Queen cone as you normally would. (I’ll take a medium chocolate-covered cone, please!)
- Ask the waiter to take a long spoon and dip it by the handle into the ice cream. This creates a sort of core, or tunnel, in the soft service. Ask the waiter to turn the long spoon clockwise once or twice to expand the core. Then the server can pour nuggets into the core.
- Have them top the ice cream with another swirl to hold the sprinkles in place.
- Finally, have them dip the entire ice cream cone in chocolate topping for a delicious finish with sprinkles all over.

Psst: You can order ice cream cupcakes at Dairy Queen.
Does every DQ do this?
It doesn’t hurt to ask! This hack will take a little longer than ordering a cone the usual way, so if your Dairy Queen is busy or there’s a long queue, the waiter might not want to make a dipped cone in sprinkled corn. But you can just give them a fun idea that they will pass on to other customers. A good idea is to check the comments on the TikTok video to get an idea of the experiences others have had while ordering in various areas.
