Chef’s Corner: Happy Campers

It’s hard to believe that we’re talking “camp” again. I haven’t even begun to think about what I’m doing next week, let alone this summer! But like most of us, we just get it done along with all the applications for schools and scholarships, not to mention filing our taxes. Personal assistant, anyone?

I love this recipe for all the right reasons: It’s sweet, gooey, fun and super easy for kids and adults to make. These campfire cones are a different twist on traditional s’mores and can be made with endless ingredients. You don’t have to sit around a campfire to make these yummy cones. Try them at home in your oven or on the grill.

Campfire Cones


Waffle ice cream cones
Peanut butter
Topping ideas: marshmallows, peanut butter cups, chocolate bar pieces, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, bananas, raspberries, strawberries…the list is endless.
Parchment paper and aluminum foil


Spread a thin layer of peanut butter in each cone. Layer your favorite toppings to the top of the cone.

Wrap each cone tightly with parchment paper, then aluminum foil.

Place cones over the campfire for about 3-5 minutes, on a heated grill for 5-6 minutes or in the oven at 375 degrees for about 5-8 minutes. Turn a couple of times until toppings are melted.

Lucia Schnitzer and her husband, Ken, own Pomelo (a full-service restaurant), Luci’s at The Orchard and Splurge (a candy and ice cream shop), all at The Orchard Phx, 7100 N 12th Street, Phoenix. They also own Luci’s Healthy Marketplace, 1590 E Bethany Home Road, Phoenix, which they opened in 2009 in Lucia’s honor after her successful battle with breast cancer.
