Camp Fire Food: Fruit & Smore Cones
of my favorite things about camping is the food. Food cooked on a fire
tastes so much better than the “everyday” food we make at home! A couple
of weekends ago we went on a camping trip as a family – it was
wonderful! Typically, we have camped in tents, but this past trip we
were blessed to be hosted by KOA in one of their cabins. It rained the whole weekend, and our camping trip was still a wonderful adventure (read our whole review here, on She is Dallas).
Other than my kids catching their first fish (I think they trained the
fish at that campground to come when they see a fishing pole – we caught
5 in half an hour!), the highlight of our trip were campfire cones that
we made. These “Smore Cones” were so yummy and are super easy to make!
Ingredients we needed for our Fruit & Smore Cones:
Chopped Fruit. The kids chose strawberries and bananas – but I bet any berries, even tart apples, would be perfect!
Chocolate Chips. We used semi-dark, chocolate chips – love the extra antioxidants.
Waffle Ice-Cream Cone. Unfortunately, not any icecream cone will work – we tried I’d love to experiment with waffle bowls next time.
Tin Foil. To wrap your cone once you have it stuffed to capacity.
First, we chopped our fruit into smaller, more manageable bits.
Then, we mixed all of our ingredients (the fruit, marshmallows,
chocolate, etc.) together into a metal bowl. We wrapped the cones in
foil and the kids had fun stuffing the waffle cones till they were
brimming and overflowing! We folded the foil over the top and laid them
over the fire, once the coals had turned gray. We rotated our Fruit
and S’more Campfire Cones a couple of times. In about 5-7min they were
ready to eat! The kids ate their cones as you would icecream (just
digging their faces in), hubs and I preferred a spoon – this is a very
Other variations we hope to try in the future include using Carmel
bits and apple slices, or adding toffee, or another favorite candy bar
chopped into bits. Check out Cooking Bright’s Campfire Cones for more ideas!
OMG...these look sooo good....
