Campfire Cone S'mores

A big thank you to Hershey's for sponsoring this post!


Back when my kiddos were little, summer and s'mores went hand in hand. We lived in San Diego so beach bbq's, cookouts at friends, and bonfires in the backyard, went on for months. Hellooooo 80 degrees like all the time!

I think it must go back to my girl scout days, but I just can't see a fire, without wanting to make s'mores. Any kind of fire. Fire up the charcoal grill? Yup, I am making s'mores!


We used to make them all sorts of ways. Traditional s'mores with that nice charred Jet Puff Marshmallow sandwiched in between Honeymaid Graham Crackers, and of course a nice big chunk of a Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar. Or, if you wanted that chocolate melted, or didn't like the char on the marshmallow, we would wrap the whole thing up in foil and lay it in the coals, or on the grill, for a few minutes. The marshmallow gets gooey, the chocolate gets soft, it is a big mess, but the messier it is, the better it tastes right?

One of my favorite twists to the classic s'more, is to use fresh fruit. Either add sliced strawberries to the traditional s'more, or make a "S'more Banana Boat" by cutting a slice out of a banana, laying in some chopped Hershey bar, chopped marshmallow, and pieces of graham cracker. Wrap it up in foil and lay it in the coals. A few minutes later you are in warm, gooey, s'mores heaven! Or making them into Campfire Cone S'mores. They are perfect for little ones, or just for people that want try "try to stay a bit cleaner.

Oh, on a side note, have you seen the new Jet-Puffed S'moreMallows and Honeymaid Graham Squares? They are perfect for making s'mores. I stocked up on them the last time I was at Walmart. We are going to be in the 90's this weekend, and 80 are in the forecast for the next, well it seems like forever. So back yard BBQin' and bonfires will be the game plan for quite a while!

Although I had to hide the chocolate because someone kept eating it! Whoever said chocolate is a woman's best friend never met Kevin!!

I invited the kiddos over to join in on the s'mores fun with us. Hence my wonderful daughter's hand modeling the pre-cooked cone above. She was giving me a hard time about putting her to "work" but I reminded her that we all have to work for our suppers. Or, in this case, s'mores, right?

I usually make these in the fire, but we have been rain free (yes I said rain free in Washington!!), and with the heat we have been having here there is a burn ban *pouty face* so I had to do them on the grill. They work just as well on the grill, it is just fun to make them in the fire. But heck, you could even make these in the oven if you wanted to!

What is your favorite way to make s'mores? Do you do them traditionally, or do you have a special way, or ingredient that your family enjoys using?

If you have kids or not, if you make them in the fire, on the grill, or in the oven. Whoever you make them with, and however you make them, you must make them this weekend. They are guaranteed to bring out the kid in YOU!

  3. What a fantastic idea! I have two kids that love eating s'mores (the messier the better) but I also have one kiddo that hates the mess - this would be perfect for him. Plus, waffle cone - yum! Thanks for the idea! #client
