If you had any kind of outdoorsy childhood. It likely included  a camp fire or two. They no doubt came with at least one batch of S'mores. 

The law of averages says at least one or more of you has burnt the roof of your mouth on flaming hot melted molten marshmallow insides, that slid out of the perfectly browned and crusty outer layer that somehow managed to stay stuck to the stick.

This is not a sing Kumbaya and hold hands kind of happy felling at all!  Avoid it at all costs!  

If you can , but don't give up S'mores. Never give up on S'mores. 

There is not enough happy in the world and S'mores are happy.  They are the kind of  happy that you remember for ever. 

The played so hard the water from the hose was sweet and mud between your toes was the best it got in summer foot wear.

First hit at bat happy.  

First strike at bowling happy.

First fish on the line happy.

Maybe not first kiss happy but up there with it.

You see where I'm coming from now don't you. 

This kind of happy should not be marred by the fact the roof of your mouth is melting in to shreds of raw flesh that will surly catch fire any minute and send plumes of smoke rolling out your nose so dense that the fire department will have to be called.  

That is why I made these for my grand-kids...

There are many recipes and I do not know who came up with it first.... It has many names.....

Camp Fire Cones

S'mores in a Cone

Fun in a Cone

the list goes on and on.

The items you can put in it goes on for a bit too. 

You can do a build your own S'mores in a cone kind of bar set up if you like. 

I keep it simple, and make ahead of time to put on the grill after dinner.

Teddy Grams

Milk Chocolate Chips

Mini Marshmallows

Sugar Ice Cream Cones 

(They don't get mushy,mushy is not fun.)


Foil to wrap cones in.


Here is the assembly in a nut shell. 

I mix it all together at room temp.

Start to wrap the foil around the cone.

Then I fill with my mix.

Finish wrapping and twist the ends.

Now set them aside till later.

After dinner place on the grill or next to the fire for 2 to 5 min. The time will depend on how hot your fire is. 

Unwrap eat and enjoy. 

I can not guarantee no one will burn their mouth on this but it's not happened at our house yet.

Waiting on a bonfire is one of the hardest things for little boys.

We play a game called krazzy Kick ball ... long story short ....  you can use your squirt gun to put soda or Kool-aid in someones moth you don't have to be out.

Happy Grand children left my house clutching the extra cones I did not roast on the grill. I sent home instructions with their mom on how to bake them in the oven ... and orders for grand kids not to put them in the microwave.


Your can wrap in wax paper and nuke in the microwave for about 4 sec. on rainy days. Or make as above and bake in a 350° oven for about 5 minutes  or as long as it takes your oven to heat up to 350° which ever comes first.

is it dark yet?

Robograndma, thanks for the great idea to make with my grandkid. A wonderful way to share with your kids and grandkids. We took our kids camping when they were growing up and their favorite treat to roast was the marshmallows for a S'more.

Have you tried cake cones? [The regular, flat-bottomed cones?] Do they get soggy? I like the idea of them standing on their own . . .

What a fabulous idea! To heck with the GRANDS! I'm making these for myself! (Not really) but, I should test drive these gems before they come to Grandma's..... Don't you think? Thank you for the idea & the instructions. I cannot wait to make!

Has anyone ever made "sore thumbs" on the campfire? My kids asked me to make them but can't find any recipe. It sounds like it's pie dough filled with pudding. Thanks

This looks like a fun thing to do with all of my grands! Wonderful idea!

About Me
My other hobby is grand kids.I don't know why anyone would but My e-mail is Other blog Kids talked me into facebook Robin Davis.
My favorite things to cook
Any thing that makes another happy. I love to eat, but I love to cook for others more. I like to see a big smile. To be honest I like to hear Wow that was good
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies with the kids and now grandkids. I have one of my own. I love to sit thumb through my grandmothers & mothers old cook books and notes. They would review and rate them in the margins. My mother would also leave slips of papper in between the pages with jokes on them so she would not forget the punch lines.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say I have two, the Hot Pepper Jelly in this site. Came out wonderfull the first time. Making my own corned beef.
My cooking tragedies
About every 4th time I make divinity. I know what I'm doing... but it's like the cooking angels are giving me a leson in humble.
