The other day, at the end of the first week of school, we celebrated with dinner by twinkle lights followed by s'mores around the fire pit...except that, apparently we didn't have all of the proper ingredients!
Oops, unbeknownst to me...we were out of graham crackers! Ever the "inventive mom" I searched through the cabinets for a graham cracker stand in. And then, tucked in the back of the cabinet, ice cream cones.
Initially everyone was a bit uncertain but who's to pass up a s'more even sans graham crackers?
The end result...was delicious! In fact, we are ready to make these our go to s'mores! S'mores cones is what we call them and they are amazing! The containment of the cone makes them much less messy while also allowing the chocolate to melt down into the marshmallow more than your typical s'more. And, by the time you get to that tiny little bit of cone at the bottom you've got the best gooey melty bite! One note, I would suggest either using two marshmallows or the jumbo marshmallows (which is what we used) in order to fill the cone adequately.
We loved these s'mores cones so much that we wanted not only to tell you about them...but show you how we made them as well!
So, on this "unofficial last day of summer" why not make your own and enjoy one last summer time treat! But, really, roasting marshmallows is a year round good time...so make some anytime!
Thanks so much to my husband for his media expertise and the kids for their artistic scenery work, this was a true family project!
