Is it just me or are S’mores really just a summer treat? Our good friends got a fire pit a few months ago and my kids love making s’mores down there! But, honestly, I hate the mess! So, we have started making these Sugar Cone Smores! They are literally 1/2 the mess!
- Sugar Ice Cream Cones
- Aluminum Foil
- Milk Chocolate Chocolate Chips
- Mini Marshmallows
- peanut butter
- sliced strawberries
- sliced bananas
- Butterscotch Chips
Fill the sugar cones with whatever toppings you would like. When we make peanut butter cones, we generally line the inside of the cone with the peanut butter and then add any additional toppings we want! When I use caramel, I like to fill the bottom of the cone with it!
Once your cone is filled, tightly wrap the entire cone in aluminum foil!
To cook on the BBQ: Place on a heated grill for 5-8 minutes, turning multiple times.
To cook in the oven: Heat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 5-7 minutes.
This is also a great treat to make while camping! You can easily make these by placing them on some coals for 4-8 minutes! We love to make them after making Tin Foil dinners, because we already have heated coals!
If I am already BBQing for dinner, then I always just throw them on my barbecue! Otherwise, I really like cooking them in the oven! I feel like they cook better if you have them “stand up” through the slats of the oven rack!
And here they are – in all their chocolate glory! They look amazing, right?
Hey guys! Kari here from Life PreKARIous. I’m so excited to show you this awesome DIY roasting stick holder! Having a fire at the end of a hot summer day is one of my absolute favorite things…add some roasted marshmallows and I’m in heaven!
This DIY roasting stick holder is the perfect way to store and carry your roasting sticks and it is SO easy to make!
Here’s what you’ll need:
-4″ diameter pvc pipe, about 18″ long
-4″ diameter pvc pipe end cap
-2 eye hooks
-spray paint in your color(s) of choice
First, I used the painters tape and taped off sections of the pvc pipe.
Next, I painted the pipe and end cap and attached it to the pipe. Mine fit really snug so I didn’t end up using any glue to attach it.
Then, I drilled 2 holes on each end of the pipe and added the eye hooks. I painted those with spray paint, too, so they would match.
Finally, I attached the chain and added the roasting sticks.
I love that the chain makes it easy to hang for storage or carry on your shoulder when needed.
Now, let’s have some s’mores!! Head over to Life PreKARIous to check out my DIY roasting sticks, too!
We took our family on a trip through the Dakotas this summer. I had never really given Mount Rushmore and that area a lot of thought as a family vacation. But we had a family event in North Dakota and figured we better stop. And we are so very glad! It was amazing! There was so much more to do in the Black Hills than we thought. It was like going back in time and so beautiful! We went in late May and it was still somewhat chilly and rained but it was still comfortable. We had 4 days there and I thought that was about the perfect amount of time. Here are a few of the highlights for us!
Of course Mount Rushmore. It was fantastic in person!
Our favorite part of the trip though was Custer State park. It is spectacular. We choose to camp and stayed in the Sylvan Lake Campground and loved it!
The Needles Highway will take you from Sylvan Lake to Keystone and the road really is a fun experience. There are rock tunnels and cool bridges.
You can even see Mount Rushmore through some of the tunnels and get a cool view of it through the trees.
The road is windy though, so if you get carsick you might want to take some Dramamine beforehand. We also loved the wildlife loop through Custer State park. We took it right before dusk time and we saw just about every kind of wildlife they have listed, many of them right up by our car!
Keystone was a lot of fun too. We choose to do the Big Thunder Gold Mine Tour and pan for some gold.
It was an experience. People raved about it on Trip Adviser so our expectations were high. I am glad we did it because we have a lot of funny memories from it, but it is not a must see in my opinion. Our tour guide was pretty amusing.
We also went to Wind Cave National Park. We went on the Natural Entrance Cave Tour and it is worth the time!
We planned on also going to Jewel Cave National Monument but unfortunately the elevator broke so we could not go which was a bummer because we were going to do the Lantern tour. Although, if there were elevator problems I’m glad it happened before we got down there!
It’s only a 2 hour or so drive over to see Badlands National Park so we went over and drove though that too.
We wanted to stop and see Wall Drug. Many reviews of Wall Drug are negative because people complained it’s a tourist trap, and it is. But that is what made it so fun. The boys really loved the fun places to take pictures and to see all the fun shops.
Since we live west of SD we were able to stop in Deadwood SD on our way home and saw the grave site of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Deadwood is a really fun old western town.
We also made a detour to see Devils Tower and Yellowstone on our way home too.
Our kids still talk about our trip. They said it was their favorite trip ever. We really focused on being present with our kids and actually put our phones is airplane mode while we were gone so there were not any distraction.
Best decision ever! Maybe that is truly what made the trip so magical was being in the wild with each other completely uninterrupted. So when thinking about your next family vacation seriously think about South Dakota! We definitely want to go back!
Our family loves to camp! One of the areas of prep that I dread though is preparing the food! I decided this year, to make it easier on myself, that I was going to prepare a Kids Camping Snack Basket! This way whenever one of my 3 kids gets hungry, they know where to go and are able to get it themselves!
I opted for a little healthier options for the snack basket, since we would be making s’mores and some other desserts after our dinners! I really loved this fun idea for Grab N’ Go Smores from Smart School House!
I put the following in our Kids Camping Snack Basket:
Horizon Apple Fruit Crunchers
Horizon Toasted Coconut Fruit Crunchers
Horizon Super Squeezes – Orange and Strawberry
Homemade Soft Granola Bars
Grapes – in snack sized baggies
Carrots – in snack sized baggies
Mini Poppyseed Lemon Muffins
Other ideas that you could put in your basket:
Now I’m off to go finish prepping the rest of our meals and organize all our stuff (these Camping Hacks are awesome)! Looking for some fun meal ideas? Check these ideas out:
