Do you ever have one of those “why didn’t I think of that” moments?
S’mores in Cones is one those moments for me! I saw the idea somewhere (can’t remember where) and thought “I want to do that … a little different” …
I love S’mores … I hate assembling them in the dark … I love toasty marshmallows … I hate the sticky melted marshmallows all over my hands … making S’mores in chocolate lined cones has got to be the answer! Now … if I can only find an answer to fix my sentence structure ;)
When we go camping, S’mores will be made … it’s a rule. After dinner, in the dark, we are trying to unwrap candy bars, open bags of graham crackers and marshmallows … things end up in the dirt! Make S’mores in the backyard … same story! I guess we are just messy people ;)
Before we leave for a camping trip, I try to do as much food prep as possible at home … anything to make camping a little easier. Making the chocolate lined cones at home would ease S’mores assembly in the dark! We do have lanterns, usually not in the right places ;)
It took me a long time to convince my hubby that camping can be fun … I would ask to go camping … he would answer NO! His excuse was that he did enough camping while he served in the Army. I finally convinced him that my idea of camping is nothing like what he experienced … it’s close to glamping and I do believe in restrooms with showers!
You will need …
Sugar Ice Cream Cones
Chocolate or candy coating (milk or dark) (1 pound should coat 12-15 cones)
Let’s get started …
Line a tray with wax paper or parchment. Fill an ice cream cone with melted chocolate or candy coating … use milk chocolate or dark, which ever you prefer.
Pour the melted chocolate out of the cone … shake or tap cone to help chocolate out. You can make the chocolate layer as thin or as thick as you like.
Dip the edge of cone in sprinkles.
Lay on wax paper and chill for a few minutes.
Store in an airtight container until ready to use!
I use 2 marshmallows per cone … Son #3 says to use 3 marshmallows!
How many marshmallows do you use for your S’mores ?
It is September … already! Halloween merchandise is popping up in stores … Christmas too! I know it happens every year at this time … but I’m still amazed how quickly time passes! Summer just can’t be over … I … Continue reading →
