Campfire Cones

Campfire conesAre you ready to have some campfire fun? By the way, campfire cones don’t have to be made by your camp site. It can take place right in the comfort of your own back yard or porch. This is the perfect summer treat for children and adults. It’s just plain fun to fill your cone with an assortment of goodies. Though we had an adventure by our camp site, I took along what I had on hand in the cupboard. I later thought of a maraschino cherry on top would be fun since we had the banana split theme going. We had the best luck with the cone facing toward the hot fire where the ashes were white and very hot.

Here are some toppings to get you inspired, but feel free to use any kind of fun treat you may have:

  • package of sugar cones
  • mini marshmallows
  • granola
  • chopped nuts
  • chopped bananas or other favorite fruit
  • store-bought or homemade granola 
  • mini-chocolate chips
  • maraschino cherries
  • Heath topping
  • mini M&Ms

Directions: Wrap foil around sugar cone in a triangle shape with enough to extend over top. Fill cone with your favorite toppings. Cover top of cone with foil.  Place near a hot camping fire, outdoor fire pit or even a grill. Depending on heat source, cones may be ready in two minutes to ten minutes.  Carefully check cones with a hot pad after a few minutes. Enjoy hot, but be careful with little ones!

    These look yummy! I’m going camping with my parents and I think I might get the ingredients for this to do with grandpa and grandma.

      Shonda, it is easy and fun. You can use just about any chocolate candy, chopped into bits and melt in the cone with the mini marsh. Enjoy summer!
