  • Waffle cones
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips (any variety)
  • Graham crackers, broken into small pieces


  1. Prepare the Cones: Begin by filling the bottom of each waffle cone with a generous layer of mini marshmallows, filling it about a quarter to a third of the way.
  2. Layer the Goodness: Next, add a layer of chocolate chips followed by a sprinkling of broken graham cracker pieces. Continue layering with mini marshmallows until the cone is filled to the top, gently pressing down on the ingredients as you go.
  3. Wrap and Seal: Individually wrap each cone tightly in aluminum foil, starting by covering the top to prevent any spillage. Fold up the bottom and wrap the sides securely to ensure the ingredients stay contained.
  4. Choose Your Cooking Method:
    • Oven Option: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place the wrapped cones on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until the fillings are melted and gooey.
    • Campfire/Grill Option: Place the wrapped cones over hot coals or on the grill grates. Cook for 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally, until the fillings are melted, and the cone is slightly toasted.
  5. Enjoy the Warmth: Carefully remove the cones from the heat and let them cool for a minute or two. Unwrap the foil and savor the warm, indulgent treat!

Serving Tips:

  1. Garnish with Extras: For an extra special touch, consider topping your S’mores Campfire Cones with a drizzle of chocolate syrup, a sprinkle of crushed graham crackers, or a dollop of whipped cream before serving.
  2. Pair with Beverages: Pair these delightful treats with your favorite beverages such as hot cocoa, coffee, or cold milk for a complete s’mores experience.
  3. Serve with Fruit: Balance out the sweetness of the cones by serving them alongside fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, or sliced bananas for a refreshing contrast.
  4. Create a S’mores Bar: Set up a DIY s’mores bar with an assortment of fillings and toppings, allowing guests to customize their cones to their liking for a fun and interactive dessert experience.

Storage Tips:

  1. Immediate Consumption: S’mores Campfire Cones are best enjoyed fresh and warm, straight from the oven or campfire. However, if you have leftovers, here’s how to store them:
  2. Refrigeration: If you have any leftover cones, allow them to cool completely, then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  3. Reheating: To reheat refrigerated cones, simply unwrap them and place them in a preheated oven at 350°F for a few minutes until warmed through. Avoid microwaving, as it can cause the cones to become soggy.
  4. Freezing: While not recommended due to the texture changes that may occur, you can freeze the cones for up to 1 month. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place them in an airtight container before freezing. To enjoy, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight, then reheat in the oven as instructed above.

By following these serving and storage tips, you can ensure that your S’mores Campfire Cones are always enjoyed to their fullest, whether fresh from the fire or reheated for later indulgence.
