Too Tired to Try Tuesday: Campfire Cones


Ok, so the name of today’s recipe suggests that you should be camping when trying these. And I have nothing against camping. Love it, in fact. But I say if you have a grill at home (heck, even the oven would do) and want a quick, easy, and fun treat to make with the kids, these Campfire Cones I found from Kids Activities Blog look like the way to go. Just look how fun . . .

Amiright?! I’m right, right? I am so in love with the idea of Campfire Cones that I am going to try them as soon as I can get my butt to the store for the ingredients.

What you’ll need:

  • Chopped fruit of your choice
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips
  • Waffle ice cream cones/bowls
  • Tin foil

That’s it! Just fill, wrap, heat, and eat. (For complete instructions for how to make these, along with some more lovely photos from Kids Activities Blog, click here.)

Really, it’s that easy. And the possibilities are endless for what you can do with these. If you’re more of a caramel and apples type of person, try it. If you like more traditional s’mores, try it! Like candy bars? Try it!

If you need even more ideas, please also check out Chef Jessica Bright’s Campfire Cones ideas.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I think your mouth is going to thank me for this one. 🙂

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!

I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at raisingwildthingsblog@gmail.com with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)

  1. We have a camping trip planned this summer with four families (9 kids) and I’m making the hell out of these. So clever!

  2. Do it!! And if you don’t mind, take some pics and send them in so I can share them. 🙂
