Campfire Peanut Butter Cup S'Mores Cones

As we kiss July goodbye, I thought it was only right to share this fun treat. 

A couple of summers ago, I watched my sis-in-love's granddaughter happily put these cones together for a big gathering. 

I think we all love the ooey gooey part of summertime and S'mores!
This is a simple, kid-friendly way to enjoy them...in a less messy fashion. 
You can make as many, or as few as you wish. 



I've wanted to make a post about them, so when I had 2 of my grandchildren here at the same time (1 lives long distance), they had a fun time putting some of these cones together. 


(Claira & Caden - they both turned 11 this summer=)

Campfire cones are sugar cones, stuffed with marshmallows, chocolate chips and a peanut butter cup...or your choice of candies. You can also add white chocolate, graham cracker pieces, Nutella, fruit or whatever your heart desires. 

Wrap them up with tin foil, pop them onto a campfire rack or in an oven for about 3 - 4 minutes.  

Great for all ages!!  And certainly fun for the kiddos! 

CAMPFIRE PEANUT BUTTER CUP S'MORES CONES 

6 - 8 ice cream cones, sugar or plain
1/2 c. chocolate chips, or more 
1/2 c. mini marshmallows, or more
mini peanut butter cups, rolos, M & M's (your choice)
fruit - berries or bananas, optional
graham crackers, broken into chunks, optional
Squares of heavy duty foil

Place about heaping tsp. chocolate chips in cone, followed by a layer of mini marshmallows.  Add mini candies/fruit, then continue layering chips and marshmallows until full.  Wrap each cone individually, and tightly in foil. (It helps to spray a bit of nonstick spray so marshmallows won't stick to foil). *TIP* If you top the cones with broken graham crackers, the marshmallows won't touch the foil.  Heat the wrapped cones on a campfire rack until choc/marshmallows are melted, about 3 - 5 minutes, or heat in 400 degree oven for 3 - 4 minutes;  Let them cool a few minutes...we don't want you to burn your tongue, then enjoy the melted, fluffy, tasty
