Campfire Cooking Part 1 - A New Take on Smores
Camp cooking is always fun. It's a great excuse to eat a lot of really yummy treats. And, one of those treats always has to be s'mores - a delectable mix of crispy graham crackers, gooey marshmallows, and rich chocolate. But there are easier ways to make s'mores than the traditional stick-over-the-fire method. Try using a waffle cone to hold chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and toasted almonds for extra crunch.
The recipe is easy. Put the mini marshmallows, chocolates and nuts into the cone. Fill them to the top, but be sure they are not overflowing. Wrap the whole cone in foil. Place the packets in a place where they get indirect heat from the campfire. I usually put it near the edge of the fire ring, where the embers are warm but not flaming. Then, pull them out of fire after 10 minutes or as long as it takes for the ingredients to melt together. Open and enjoy.
Moms, what other versions of this dessert cone would you make on a camping trip?
