These Campfire Cones are waffle cones stuffed with fruit, chocolate, and marshmallows, and are a fun patriotic Red, White, and Blue! These campfire treats are super fun, but you can skip the fire and bake them if you want, for the same gooey marshmallow, deliciousness!
The first time I saw campfire cones I wanted to make them. I loved how fun they seemed. Like a whole new way to eat s’mores. But I never got around to making them. Life just kind of happened, and I totally forgot about them.
Fast forward a year, and my sister tells me that they went camping and she made campfire cones, and stuffed them full of fruit, chocolate, and marshmallows, instead of just chocolate and marshmallows. And once again I can’t get them out of my mind.
Fast forward another year, and I have now, finally, made them myself.
And guess what? They were worth the wait. Oh baby! I decided to go with a patriotic color scheme, so I could make them for our 4th of July celebrations. So I got white chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, red, white and blue M&M’s, and them some fresh berries: strawberries and blueberries.
I layered up my waffle cones, wrapped them in foil, and baked them in the oven. I know…so lame. But I was testing them out for the 4th of July. See every year we go camping/river rafting for the 4th of July with my extended family. It is tradition. And we roast hot dogs, and eat tin foil dinners, and watch the parade, and the fireworks, and float the river.
We have done this as long as I can remember, and I wanted to do something new with it this year. So in addition to a ton of fun games, I also decided it was finally time for me to make the campfire cones! Patriotic ones.
I didn’t want to get up to our campground, and find out they are gross, so I had to test them out. So I loaded up my cones with all the fun berries, chocolates, like Red, White, & Blue M&M’s, and marshmallows, and baked them until the marshmallow and white chocolate chips were nice and gooey. About 8 minutes. Then I ate them.
And guess what???
We loved them. My kids said they were better than any campfire treat ever. Which I thought was insane since we have had an Ultimate S’mores Bar! But I have to admit, they were pretty awesome. Now I am thinking of all the variations I can make.
