I love s’mores. There’s a reason the name is short for “some more,” after all. But despite the dessert’s deliciousness, I’ve never been a fan of sticky hands and clothes that smell like a campfire for days. That’s where campfire cones come in. This delicious, s’mores-with-a-twist dessert can be made rain or shine right in your oven, no campfire required. Campfire cones are exactly what they sound like: s’mores ingredients neatly tucked into an ice cream cone. You can wrap them in aluminum foil and roast them over a backyard fire or in your oven. Beyond being low-mess, campfire cones are also easy to make for a crowd, and scorching the marshmallows is virtually impossible. Plus, keeping everything contained in a cone also means more ingredient possibilities!

To make standard campfire cones, you’ll need ice cream cones, miniature marshmallows, tiny chocolate chips, graham crackers, and aluminum foil. Lay a square of aluminum foil on a baking sheet, and fill each cone with a combination of marshmallows, chocolate chips, and broken graham cracker pieces. You can stuff the cones pretty full, as the marshmallows will melt and shrink in the oven.

Once they’re full, wrap them up in the aluminum foil. Twist the foil at the top and leave a little air space for the marshmallows, otherwise the foil will be hard to remove.

The best part of campfire cones is the ability to add ingredients that wouldn’t normally fit in a standard s’more, so I highly recommend including your favorite candy as well. I used Reese’s cups and M&M’s, which melted really nicely.

Once your cones are prepped, bake them in the oven at 400°F for five minutes.

In practically no time, they’ll turn into delicious, melty goodness.

Then you can fill the tops of the cones with leftover chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers.

I switched to Hershey’s for the decorative topping but found that mini chocolate chips work best for fitting the most chocolate in the cones. Just look at that melty center!
