Reese’s Campfire Cones are the most delicious summer dessert! Waffle cones filled with marshmallows, chocolate, mini peanut butter cups, and Reese’s Pieces, wrapped in foil, and heated over a campfire until the filling is melted and the cone is extra crispy.
I also have a regular S’mores Campfire Cones recipe if you prefer the classic!
It’s officially that time in Texas when you can’t walk outside for 2 ½ minutes without being a sweaty mess.
But that’s not stopping us from grilling campfire cones several nights a week! These Reese’s Campfire Cones are a current favorite in my house because everyone loves chocolate and peanut butter together.
If you aren’t familiar with campfire cones, they are waffle cones filled with your choice of s’mores fillings (this one has marshmallows, chocolate, mini peanut butter cups, and Reese’s Pieces), and then you can either warm them on the grill, over a campfire, or even in the oven.
Why You’re Going To Love This Recipe
- S’mores are the most delicious summer dessert! Is there anything that screams summer more than s’mores over the campfire?!
- These Reese’s Campfire Cones can be grilled or baked! So you can make them at home without stepping foot outside or over your backyard bonfire OR on a camping trip with your family.

- Campfire cones are also so easy to make! So easy that the kiddos in your life can assemble their own – just don’t let them near the fire without close supervision.
Ingredients for Reese’s Campfire Cones
- Waffle cones – you will need as many cones as you plan to make. You can make one or make a bunch all at once. And make sure it’s waffle cones because they are sturdier and will hold up better than cake or sugar cones.
- Mini marshmallows – these melt and hold everything together inside the cone. Probably the most important part of the s’mores.
- Chocolate – use any kind of chocolate you want, I used semisweet chocolate chips in this.
- Mini Peanut Butter Cups – you can find these in pretty much any candy aisle of a big grocery store. I’m a big fan of the Trader Joe’s ones if you have a TJ’s near you.
- Reese’s Pieces – arguably the most underrated candy of all time. These add such a fun crunch to the cone.
How To Make Reese’s Campfire Cones
- Assemble campfire cones. Fill the bottom of each cone with mini marshmallows. Layer the chocolate chips, mini peanut butter cups, Reese’s pieces, and more mini marshmallows.
- Wrap in foil. Wrap each cone individually in aluminum foil, making sure they are tightly sealed.
- To bake in the oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place the wrapped cones on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes.
- To cook over the fire or on the grill: Place the wrapped cones over the hot coals of your campfire or on the grill grates. Cook for 5-7 minutes.
- Cool slightly. Remove the cones from the heat and let cool for a minute or two.
- Enjoy! Carefully unwrap the foil and enjoy!
You can prep the cones ahead and wrap them in foil. Store them in the fridge if you plan on making them at home or in a cooler if you’re taking them camping. Just make sure not to crush them in transport!
I recommend using a waffle cone in this recipe because they are sturdier than cake cones or sugar cones. I worry that the cake or sugar cones will break and be a big mess when you unwrap the foil.

- Fill the bottom of each cone (about ¼ - ⅓) with mini marshmallows.
- Layer the chocolate chips, Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s Pieces, and more mini marshmallows until filled as much as possible, gently packing the layers down as you go.
- Wrap each cone individually in aluminum foil, making sure they are tightly sealed. The easiest way to do this is by first covering the top of the cone where the ingredients are to ensure they don’t spill out. Then fold up the bottom and wrap up the sides.
- To bake in the oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place the wrapped cones on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until everything is melted and gooey.
- Cook over the fire or on the grill: Place the wrapped cones over the hot coals of your campfire or on the grill grates. Cook for 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally, until the fillings are melted and the cone is slightly toasted.
- Carefully remove the cones from the heat and let cool for a minute or two.
- Unwrap the foil and enjoy!
