Campfire Cones are a great alternative to the messy s’mores and the perfect camping recipe! Stuffed with chocolate, marshmallows, strawberries, bananas and anything else you have around the house!
I love everything s’more! Especially these delicious S’more Bites, but I am an equal opportunity s’more lover and my other favorites, S’mores Dip and S’moreo brownies cannot be forgotten either! These are all great options with the Campfire Cones when you want to shake up your s’more routine!
Campfire Cones Recipe
You can make this delicious dessert on the grill or cook them in the campfire. Campfire cones are the perfect camping recipe or even great for a summer party or barbecue!
They may be my new favorite summer dessert! The Campfire Cone originated by Kids Activity Blog, is a treat that my kids beg for every summer (and trust me, I have no issue with complying with this request!)
This may have surpassed my obsession with s’mores! The great thing about campfire cones is that they are so easy to make and not as messy as traditional s’mores.
(Score one for those that hate the sticky marshmallow oozing out of the graham cracker and getting all over your kids’ shirts, but LOVE the oozing marshmallows!!)

What is a Campfire Cone?
Campfire Cones are a fun twist on the traditional s’more. Basically, you take everything you can find in your pantry and shove it in a waffle cone, wrap it in foil and throw it on the grill!! Let it get nice and melted and enjoy your sweet treat!
How to make Campfire Cones?
It is super easy to make campfire cones. First, you grab your favorite ingredients:
- waffle cones
- fruit – strawberries, sliced bananas, blueberries, raspberries
- chocolate – chocolate chips, Reese’s, etc.
- mini marshmallows
Optional (but delicious)
- Reese’s peanut butter cups, Rolo’s, Peppermint Patty’s, caramel chips – the sky’s the limit!
- Caramel sauce – optional, but go for that option!!
Next, you take your favorite ingredients and load them into the cone. Make sure those the cones filled with tons of fruit, marshmallows, and chocolate! We particularly love the peanut butter chocolate combined with the fruit and marshmallow!
Then, take your cone and wrap it in tin foil and place it on the grill or over the campfire for about 3-5 minutes! Unwrap the foil (it is a good idea to use oven mitts to unwrap) and enjoy!

I found the more fruit you put in, the better it is! The fruit is honestly what makes this delicious treat!

Hi Jenn! Never had campfire cones before, but I love the idea, amazing really! 🙂 Also, that strawberry is mouth-watering in that cone! Thank you for sharing this recipe! 🙂 – Love, Anna!
PS.: I love your site 😉
Thanks so much for stopping by Anna!!! You will love them!!!! LIFE changing!
Going to add this to the sleepover treat list for the grandkids! Something in to do together and delish treat, too!!
We just made one yummy! But all we had was peanut butter chocolate and marshmallows our cooked for 10 minutes
Can you do these in the oven? We live in an apartment so no grills or fires allowed. Thanks
Yes – they should work fine in the oven!
thanks for sharing it..
I have never heard of anything like this! This would be so fun, and looks delicious.
Can these be made ahead of time?
The ingredients can be cut up and ready to go, but I would stuff them right before you are ready to make them. Otherwise the cones could get soggy.
These were amazing! Surprisingly good! Wanted to take advantage of a nice day today so we built a fire and the kids cooked hot pockets wrapped in foil over the coals. Then we prepped these treats! As stated in the recipe, the key truly is mostly fruit with a few treats nestled in between. We did strawberries and bananas with a few marshmallows and some dark chocolate rolos. The bananas caramelize in the fire and it’s perfection! Definitely saving this one for some camping trips!!
