One of the greatest things about camping is making smores and eating them. Everybody loves roasting marshmallows over a fire pit, whereas others just like catching them on fire.
Some like eating them golden-brown and others like to eat them burnt. Regardless of the way you like your marshmallows, wedging it between two graham crackers with a delicious piece of chocolate is a whole new experience. It’s sweet and tasty and just flat out delicious. Even though a traditional smores recipe only requires graham crackers, a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow, there are some new and innovative ways of making them now.
I have seen many recipes using waffle cones or sugar cones, but for this recipe I decided to use waffle bowls. How to make this delicious treat?
- Waffle bowls
- Chocolate chips
- Mini marshmallows
- Butterscotch chips (optional)
- Sprinkles (optional)
- Mini Reeses pieces (optional)
- Teddy graham crackers (optional)
- Chopped peanuts or other nuts (optional)
- Other candies or toppings you can buy at your local store (optional)
- Start by creating a roaring fire in your fire pit.
2. Get a waffle bowl and fill it minimally with 50% marshmallows and then add some of your other optional ingredients (you can be traditional and just add chocolate chips or omit them altogether).
3. Gently mix the ingredients, then wrap the bowl carefully with a piece of foil ensuring that you don’t tip it.
4. Put it on top of the fire grill for about 5-10 minutes while checking on it and turning it periodically to ensure it doesn’t burn (this depends on the size of your fire and how close your grill is).
5. When it’s ready, take it off the grill to cool a bit (careful as it may be hot). Unwrap the foil to reveal a tasty treat consisting of melted gooey marshmallows and all your favourite bits and treats.
Even though I did find the waffle bowl was a bit fragile after putting it in the fire, it worked out because the pieces would neatly fall on top of the melted blob and amalgamate as one lovely treat. It can probably also be done in a toaster-oven, but I have yet to try that method.
It’s easy and fun to do. I could probably only eat one in a sitting, but it’s a relatively clean way to eat smores and it still remains as yummy (if not more) than it’s original version! Enjoy!
