With summer quickly fading, leaves are slowly turning shades of yellow and orange. As we make the transition into the autumn season, it’s time to turn our attention to the crisp fall air, cozy blankets and warm campfires. And while roasting marshmallows amid backyard ghost stories is more of a summer activity, we have a recipe we think you’ll want to carry into next season.
There’s a new take on the classic s’mores – and it’s a must-have. “Campfire Cones” are the delicious treat everyone needs to try. A lot less messy, but just as great, it’s one to keep both kids and adults satisfied.
Additionally, the twist on the graham cracker dessert actually allows for more variety. That means more chocolate – or not. The cones are completely customizable for whatever your heart desires. Add in different kinds of chocolate, fruits or other candies.
The recipe comes from lifestyle blogger Hip2Save. Lina Darnell is the creator who shared her treat, which is taking the internet by storm.
“These melted marshmallow and chocolate cones have become a yummy summertime tradition in our family,” Darnell told Fox News. “They are such a creative version of s’mores and are fun to make and eat!”
Here’s everything you need to try this recipe. And we mean today. Like right now.
Campfire Cones Ingredients & Recipe
First, you’ll need waffle cones (which are generally used for ice cream). They vary in size so choose according to what you want to fill your cone with.
Next, you’ll need the filling. Here’s where you can get creative. Feel free to get mini-peanut butter cups, M&M’s, mini marshmallows, raspberries, bananas, blueberries. Really, the sky’s the limit on this one.
Then you’ll fill your cone with all the desired ingredients. Once it’s all in there, place foil over the top of the cone, securing the items inside. Next, you’ll want to place your cone on a grate on the campfire or near the hot coals. Let it sit for about 3 to 5 minutes.
Once the cone is nice and hot and you’re sure the insides have melted, grab with tongs and let sit for a couple minutes (if you can wait that long). Once your treat has cooled, go ahead and unwrap it and enjoy the amazingness that awaits you.
Want to try it out but have no plans for camping? You can cheat, we won’t tell. Go ahead and prep your cone the same way. Only this time you can use a heated grill and cook for about five minutes. Even better? Set your oven to 375 degrees and heat your cone between 5 and 8 minutes.
Now go try it out and enjoy the chocolatey goodness. You’re welcome.
