Campfire Cones

waffle campfire cone stuffed with chocolate, butterscotch, and marshmallows

Imagine a waffle cone stuffed with all your favorite junk food sweets, slowly heated through until everything is ooey-gooey delicious. Maybe you chose traditional s’mores flavors of chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallows. Or you chose butterscotch, peanuts, and cinnamon. Maybe you went slightly healthier with strawberries, chocolate, and marshmallows. Whatever you chose it won’t be long before you too can be enjoying these decadent campfire cones!

What we love about Campfire Cones:

  • These are quick, easy, and fun
  • They are customizable to everyone’s tastes
  • Cones can be filled with fruit or candy or both

The Ingredients:

  • Waffle Cones
  • Assorted Chips (butterscotch, chocolate, cinnamon, etc.)
  • Various Fruits (banana slices, strawberry pieces, etc.)
  • Assorted Candies (rolos, m&ms, etc.)
  • Miniature Marshmallows (helps everything meld)

The Process:

  1. For each one: Fill one waffle cone with a mixture of marshmallows, chips, and other items.
  2. Completely wrap the filled cone with aluminum foil. Wrap first in parchment paper if you want to avoid the foil from touching your food.
  3. Cook over fire, rotating occasionally, until the marshmallows have melted. Time needed will depend on how hot your fire is.

Note: This can also be accomplished over a grill, in the oven, or even using a torch if you don’t want to build a fire.

Equipment needed:

  • Aluminum foil and (optional) parchment paper: You are going to want heavy duty foil for this as your cone is apt to get burnt in regular foil. Ask us how we know. If you don’t like to eat food that has been in contact with foil under heated conditions, wrap your cone in parchment paper prior to the foil.
  • Cutting board and knife: You will want to have a clean surface to work with, as well as knives for cutting any large ingredients into smaller pieces.
  • Heat resistant gloves: If you are going to be working around a fire, at some point you will probably get burned. These gloves can help prevent that.

More Ingredients to Try:

  • almond, cookie, nutella, or peanut butter
  • blackberries, blueberries, or raspberries
  • almonds, cashews, walnuts, or pecans
  • caramel, chocolate, or marshmallow sauce
  • chocolate stuffed with peanut butter (reese’s), caramel (rolo’s), or mint (patties)
