Campfire Cones

 In our church 
we have an annual tradition 
where the men and boys gather for an overnight
Father and Sons Camp Out
They head to the mountains,
pitch their tents
cook food
let the little boys run in packs
(and get plenty dirty)
and tell stories around the campfire.
It's a "GUY THANG"
and I don't know who is more excited to attend
Mr. Cactus 
our son-in-law
or our grandsons.
 I sent along a fun little treat
that I saw on Pinterest.
 You start with a waffle cone
 and frost the inside with peanut butter.
 Fill the insides with a mixture of 
chocolate chips
mini marshmallows
and chopped bananas.
 A mouthwatering blend of flavors.
 Fill as many as needed
for an ooey-gooey time.
 Campfire Joy
 Wrap each individual cone in foil.
 I packed the 
Campfire Cones in a zip-lock bag with 
easy to follow instructions.
 Turning every few minutes, the cones only need 5-10 minutes on the coals
to melt the chocolate with the marshmallows.
 Then be prepared for some happy faces.
 Our grandson Noah said he couldn't decide what he liked more:
Campfire Cones
listening to grandpa tell stories
in the campfire darkness
about aliens
who sucked up camper's tents
and transported them into spaceships.
*fortunately, all ended well  :)
yep, it's a guy thang.

What a fun idea!
Our such event got rained on hard! It was supposed to be an open air campout. Only a few boys lucky enough to be in a camper actually spent the night.

Thanks Nedra for the great idea. I'll try it this summer when the kids come!
Noah looks like one happy camper.
