S’mores Cones, also known as Campfire Cones, are everything you love about traditional s’mores and then some. A variety of s’mores toppings added to melted marshmallows and chocolate truly take s’mores to the next level of delicious. I’m serious, you have got to make these for dessert asap.
National Marshmallow Toasting Day is coming up on August 30 and it’s the perfect excuse to make S’mores Cones with your family and friends. The kids and I had a lot of gooey good fun making ours. We’ll be happy to show you how it’s done.
No camping or campfire is required for S’mores Cones. Bake them in your oven, heat them on the grill or over the campfire. See directions for all three ways in the recipe below.
You can’t go wrong with The Basic Campfire Cone: marshmallows and chocolate perfectly melted together inside a waffle cone. But if you’re ready for next-level s’mores, go ahead and add in any combination of your favorite s’mores toppings. Some of my family’s favorites are sliced strawberries, bananas, and peanut butter cups. Read on for even more topping ideas.
We are enjoying our last few weeks of summer. The weather is so nice, I took everything we need to make s’mores cones outdoors. My boys took a lot of care deciding which goodies to put in their waffle cones.
Once the cones were filled, we wrapped them up completely in aluminum foil for baking.
We baked our S’mores Cones on a baking sheet in the oven. A few short minutes later, the cones were ready to unwrap and eat! All that melted marshmallow and chocolaty gooey goodness is guaranteed to lead to sticky fingers and faces. I make sure that a pack of Huggies® wipes is around when it’s time to clean up our s’mores cone messes.
The kids can grab Huggies® wipes when they are ready to clean their messy hands. I have learned that not all wipes are created equal – only Huggies® wipes has triple layers that are gentle on skin and thick enough to take care of the mess.
No worries for us at clean-up time – we use Huggies® wipes.
Are you ready to make S’mores Cones? All you need are waffle cones and any combination of toppings like sliced bananas, strawberries, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, mini peanut butter cups and mixed berries.
- For each S'mores Cone: Fill one waffle cone with a mixture of marshmallows, chips and toppings.
- Completely wrap the filled cone with aluminum foil.
- To bake in the oven: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place foil-wrapped cones in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes or until marshmallows are melted. To cook on the grill: Place foil-wrapped cones on a heated grill for 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally until marshmallows are melted. To cook over the campfire: Heat the foil-wrapped cones over a campfire for about 3-5 minutes, or until the marshmallows have melted.

I love S’Mores. This is such a great idea. It does look just as messy as original S’Mores which shocks me.
This is too cool! What a great idea, Especially for apartment folks like me! We love smores and this is a fun way to make it!!! We are definitely trying this one!
Thank you, Marisa! I hope you have fun making your S’mores Cones. Have a great weekend! -Nicole
