Some People Are So Clever!

    Line a terra cotta pot with aluminium foil, put in some charcoal, light it and you have a mini campfire where you can roast marshmallows . . . or make some s’mores . . . or make a delicious sugar cone filled with fruit and chocolate and marshmallows . . . heat it on your mini campfire . . . FlowerPotCampFire

    While you’re enjoying your delicious treat, you can tell some wonderful ghost stories . . .

    Plus you can surprise Dad with this for Father’s Day!

    And, once you do this . . . you’ve found the go-to-treat your family will ask for all summer long.

    Be sure to be responsible with adult supervision. You don’t want to have a huge fire, even if you use a larger terra cotta pot . . . you just need enough heat to melt the chocolate and the marshmallows.

    Sugar Cone or Waffle Cone Delicious Summer Treat Recipe

    yummy-campfire-cones-for-summer-dessert-hip2save-comThis will be easy for you to make and find all the ingredients . . . it’s just stuff you love and would like to have all melted together into a cone.

    You can make these on the grill after BBQ-ing, on a campfire and even in the oven . . . I kind of like that idea — a delicious treat that can be made throughout the year — just a thought.

    It is quite clever to use a waffle cone in place of the graham crackers in the original s’mores tradition.

    I wonder about adding some chopped nuts . . . or if this would be chewy enough with the cone . . . or adding some broken up pieces of graham cracker . . . or even cookie pieces . . .

    These will definitely be easier to put together and have stay together from the first to last bite.

    Here is a list of suggested ingredients — be sure to add some items of your own — and delete some as well:

    • marshmallows
    • Reese’s peanut butter cups
    • chocolate bar pieces
    • Rolos
    • butterscotch chips
    • chocolate chips
    • banana slices
    • sliced raspberries 
    • sliced strawberries

    Now:

    1. Fill the cone with desired amounts of marshmallow and other ingredients.
    2. Cover the cone with aluminium foil.
    3. Place over the campfire for about 3-5 minutes or on a heated grill for 5-6 minutes or in the oven at 375° F for about 5=8 minutes. You want the toppings melted.
    4. Enjoy the warm and gooey melted feast of chocolate. marshmallow and fruit pieces.

    This is definitely a winner . . . something I can see offering throughout the summer . . . into the fall . . . and winter, too!

    I hope you’ll try these out and see how it works for you.

    Until next time,
