How to make yummy campfire s’mores in an ice cream cone. All you need are sugar cones, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows for this easy camping recipe!

Every time we go camping, I always pack ingredients for s’mores. While graham crackers, chocolate, and mini marshmallows are always on the list, both for regular s’mores and for s’mores dip, I have a feeling sugar cones will make the list too from now on. 

Sugar cone s’mores and banana boats s’mores are the easiest things I’ve ever made. The trick is to pack them as full of chocolate chips and marshmallows as you possibly can.

You can use any kind of chocolate you want, but Ghirardelli chocolate chips are the best and my absolute favorite for making s’mores, chocolate chip cookies, and more. They really do make the best s’mores with kids.

What I love about campfire cones is there’s less mess. Everything squishes down in the cone, you warm it up over the fire or the grill, then eat it like an ice cream cone

Also, did you know National S’mores Day is August 10th? It sure is, and now you have even more reason to make these lovelies.

Below you’ll find a printable recipe.

Completely wrap your sugar cone s’more in aluminum foil. Make sure it’s completely covered.

Add to a warm grill, or place over the fire (try to keep it somewhat above the fire, maybe using a tripod with a Dutch oven). If you want to put it directly in the fire, try to put it over hot coals rather than over open flame. 

Allow the s’mores to cook for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Using a pair of tongs, remove your s’more from the fire or grill, and carefully unwrap the foil; be careful, it’s hot! Watch the marshmallow, especially, as you unwrap so you don’t get burnt. 

You can let it cool for a few minutes, then dig in and enjoy! S’more campfire cones are so yummy!
