You guys. My life has been changed.
No but seriously.
I have never been huge into s’mores. Mostly because it always seemed weird to me to have this perfectly melted marshmallow and then try to bite through solid chocolate. The only times I give in and make a s’more are the times that someone whips out the fudge striped cookies instead of graham crackers and Hershey’s.
Well, this waffle cone version is like a million times better. And oh so genius. I had these waffle cone s’mores at a youth camp this summer, and I’m sure the idea had to have originated from Pinterest somewhere. I honestly can’t believe I hadn’t thought of this solution already. I’ve tried various ways of getting the “melted chocolate” effect into my s’more, but this puts all my attempts to shame.
The reason this is perfect in so many ways is because the waffle cone is the perfect thickness, the chocolate is wonderfully melted right along with the marshmallows, and you can add other amazing things to it….LIKE PEANUT BUTTER CHIPS. Okay, peanut butter on a s’more? Yes please.
I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER.
Okay, moving on. Another thing that makes these great is that they are really easy to do at home in the oven. Please don’t judge me when I say that I had these 2-3 times for dessert in the past week. “One more Waffle Cone S’mores….coming right up!”
So if the pictures didn’t make it obvious, here’s what you need for the basic goodness:
Waffle cones or cake cones
Chocolate Chips, chunks of your favorite candy bars, and anything else that is heavenly
Peanut Butter Chips
Others: You might also love adding caramel bits or bananas or berries.
Cover your waffle cone s’mores in tin foil and place in the fire, the oven, or on the grill. For the oven, I have been placing mine in on 350 for about 8-12 min (it will vary depending on the size of cone you are using).
If you really want to put your body in sugar overload, drop a scoop of ice cream on top of the melted heavenly mess.
I apologize for the top pic in this photo. It’s overexposed, but I was way to excited to care.
Have you had waffle cone s’mores before?
What’s your favorite camping treat?
