Your Title: How Can You Transform Your Campfire Treats with Sweet Campfire Cones?

Transform your camping dessert game with irresistible campfire cones, a delightful mix of melted chocolate, gooey marshmallows, and your favorite toppings wrapped in a crunchy cone, perfect for roasting over an open flame.

When it comes to campfire treats, the classic s'mores have long reigned supreme. However, there's a new dessert trend that's taking the camping world by storm: campfire cones. These delicious, customizable treats are not only fun to make but also provide a delightful twist on the traditional campfire dessert. Here's everything you need to know to create these scrumptious treats on your next camping adventure.


What You'll Need

To make campfire cones, you'll need a few simple ingredients:

  • Sugar or waffle cones

  • Mini marshmallows

  • Chocolate chips (or any type of chocolate you prefer)

  • Fresh fruits (such as strawberries, bananas, or blueberries)

  • Any other favorite toppings (like peanut butter chips, caramel bits, or crushed cookies)

  • Aluminum foil


How to Make Campfire Cones

  1. Preparation: Begin by preparing your ingredients. Chop any fruits or larger toppings into small, bite-sized pieces to ensure they fit easily into the cones.

  2. Fill the Cones: Take a sugar or waffle cone and start filling it with your chosen ingredients. Begin with a layer of mini marshmallows and chocolate chips, then add some fruit or other toppings. Repeat the layers until the cone is filled to the top. The combination of flavors is entirely up to you, so feel free to get creative!

  3. Wrap in Foil: Once your cone is filled, wrap it tightly in aluminum foil. This will help to keep all the ingredients in place and allow everything to melt together beautifully.

  4. Cook Over the Campfire: Place your wrapped cone on the edge of the campfire, not directly in the flames. Allow it to cook for about 5-10 minutes, rotating occasionally to ensure even heating. The goal is to melt the chocolate and marshmallows while warming the fruit and other toppings.

  5. Unwrap and Enjoy: Carefully remove the cone from the fire and let it cool for a minute. Then, unwrap the foil and enjoy your delicious campfire cone. Be prepared for a gooey, melty, and utterly delightful treat!


Tips and Tricks

  • Experiment with Flavors: Don’t be afraid to try different combinations of ingredients. Nutella, white chocolate chips, coconut flakes, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon can add unique flavors to your cones.

  • Make It a Fun Activity: Involve everyone in the campfire cone-making process. Set up a toppings bar and let each person create their own custom cone.

  • Watch the Heat: Be mindful of how close your cones are to the fire. Too close, and they might burn; too far, and they might not melt properly.


Campfire cones are a fantastic way to add some excitement and variety to your camping dessert options. With endless combinations and the fun of creating your own custom treat, these sweet cones are sure to become a new favorite around the campfire. So next time you head out for a camping trip, pack some cones and your favorite toppings, and get ready to enjoy a delightful twist on the classic s'mores.
