Little S and I were alone for dinner last night, and so we ate, umm…these. (OK– we also had carrots, broccoli and hummus. But still. We lived wild.) This was a great idea that I picked up on a stroll through Pinterest, and comes from a post last year by Lina at Hip2Save. (I could have been making these for a whole year and didn’t know it!) Such a s’mores upgrade– since it’s in a cone, you can fit in more stuff without worrying that it will fall out the sides. It is as easy as it looks.
Obviously, you can cook these anywhere there’s heat: oven, grill, or campfire– with campfire being the most authentic summer-night choice. Just pick your toppings, load the cone, wrap the whole cone in foil, and “bake” until the insides are gooey and melted. The original recipe suggests the following baking times: 375°F oven for 5-8 minutes, heated grill for 5-6 minutes, or campfire for 3-5 minutes. We actually went with toaster oven, since it was just the two of us and we wanted them quick. Worked great! The one note I would add is to make sure your fillings are cut or broken into the smallest pieces possible (smaller than I have pictured here–live and learn!) This will fit more in, and give you a better “taste-mix.”
Tonight we used sliced strawberries, pecans, cut-up marshmallows, roasted coconut flakes, and Hershey’s chocolate (I’m partial to it!) But the sky is certainly the limit when thinking of toppings that would taste good mooshed together and melted in a sugar cone. You can’t really go wrong. I hope you try this one out– it was so much fun. Thanks to Lina for the great, easy idea!
