As I promised, I am back today with the life changing campfire cones. Ok, they are not life changing [well if you eat enough of them, something will change!].
And the best part – my ‘yurt inspecting‘ and ‘coffee maker in the ladies room is genius‘ peeps, you will be glad to hear that you really don’t even have to go camping to have campfire cones. If you have a grill or fire pit, you can use your indoor plumbing, sleep in your own bed and lather up without worry or concern about how many minutes for how many quarter and still enjoy a bit of camping. But, you may not make these inside your home; that would just be wrong.
In previous years, we would keep making s’mores for the boys and could not understand when they they did not want s’more. So, we mixed it up this year with something new. I have Pinterest to thank for the original find and then just added my own twist to the ‘recipe’.
All you need is before you in the photo below: sugar cones, foil, and goodies like semi-sweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, Nutella, and mini marshmallows. What you can’t see are the gourmet sea salt caramels, which were a perfect, and I dare say, necessary, addition. The original recipe included chopped bananas or strawberries, and I am guessing that peaches might be something to consider also.
That giant knife? Not needed. I didn’t want any confusion there.
First step: spread the Nutella all along the inside of the cone.
You could substitute peanut butter for the Nutella. Or use both.
So kid and kid-at-heart friendly – and easy to make.
Each person gets to create their own favorite combination.
Just fill the cone with the what you like!
Wrap those baby’s in the tin foil and sit back for about 20 minutes to let the melted magic happen.
And I won’t say for sure, but it’s possible, just quite possible, that the camping mamas may have tucked those cute boys into their sleeping bags, snug as bugs, and then gone back out to the still cracklin’ campfire and had a second campfire cone. But I’ll never tell…it may be just another tall tale of the Camping Mamas…
Happy Roasting – what will you put in your campfire cone(s)?
