Sweet Dozen Cones: Foodie Find of Folsom and El Dorado Hills

Mar 29, 2018 10:53AM

Folsom’s Historic District has been making locals’ sweet dreams come true since September of last year thanks to Sweet Dozen Cones. The unique ice cream-donut-coffee shop hybrid has become so popular that they've been forced to close early due to selling out of nearly everything on more than one occasion. You could say my friend and I were pretty relieved to see the doors still open after arriving on a busy Saturday. The sweet spot’s décor is easy on the eyes (think simple brick walls and pastel furnishings) and provides the perfect backdrop to their Instagram-worthy “cones.” My friend went for the That’s Razi offering—a European-style donut cone covered in cinnamon and sugar with a brim of raspberry jelly and a filling of vanilla cheesecake soft-serve gelato with graham cracker crumbs and a (surprise) donut hole in the bottom. The almost-too-cute-to-eat cone was nothing short of an experience. With summer (and camping) on my mind, I went for the popular S’mores selection, featuring the same cinnamon-sugar vessel with a perfectly toasted marshmallow brim, rich chocolate soft-serve gelato, fluffy marshmallows, graham crackers, and a donut hole. I could practically smell the roaring campfire with every lick and will definitely be back soon for another sweet dose of summer.
