Summer Campfire Treats

S'mores on a Stick
Cook's notes: Sometimes you just want a small bite of that All-American s'more! This is a great treat when you want to please a crowd! Coconut oil sets up the chocolate so it will adhere better to marshmallow.
Ingredients:
  • 1 pack of graham crackers or 1-1/2 cups crushed nuts
  • 3 chocolate bars
  • package of marshmallows 
  • pack of 4- 8 inch lollipop sticks 
  • 1 spoonful coconut oil
Directions:
  • Crush graham crackers in a sealed zip loc bag with a rolling pin.  Pour crumbs into a bowl. 
  • Break your chocolate into individual pieces and drop them in a small saucepan. (Note 3 bars of chocolate makes about 10 pops) Add in 1 spoonful of coconut oil. Mix chocolate and oil together and melt over very low heat. Pour the chocolate in a small but deep bowl.
  • Poke a lollipop or cake pop stick into the top of the marshmallow.
  • Dip marshmallow in the chocolate, getting the sides and the top coated. Then roll it in the graham cracker crumbs or nuts.
  • Place s'more pops in a cake pop holder if you have one or if you don't have one, simply get a sturdy cardboard box and poke holes in it.
  • Place s'more pops in freezer for one hour to set.
  • When ready to pass out the s'mores, light your kitchen torch and set it to its lowest setting. Gently torch the exposed marshmallow by waving the flame across the surface. Quickly blow out any flare-ups on the marshmallows. Serve immediately.

Campfire Cones
Cook's notes: A compact s'more treat in a sugar cone. It's an ingenious idea that kids can make on their own. It tastes like a banana split in a cone.  by Anne
Recipe supplied by Anne P. a camp counselor, who assures me it's a hit with campers.
Ingredients:
  • sugar cones
  • peanut butter
  • sliced bananas 
  • mini chocolate chips 
  • mini marshmallows
Directions:
  • For each cone coat the inside with a heaping teaspoon of peanut butter. Add in a handful of mini-chocolate chip. Place 3 banana slices sideways into the cone. Top each cone with a handful of mini- marshmallows.  
  • Wrap each cone in foil. There are a few different ways to cook it.
1. Place cones in a preheated oven 350 degrees on oven rack. Cook for about 7 minutes.
2. Place cones on a campfire grate and cook about 5- 7 minutes.
3. Heat gas grill to 350 degrees and place cones directly on grate. Cook 5-7 minutes.
