Girl Scout Recipe Inspires Hunger

The Beacon News, IL, reports that the hottest restaurant around is the campfire at Camp Greene Wood, where Girl Scouts cook up culinary creations during day camp with a “Camp Chef” focus.

The Girl Scouts have added pitas, quesadillas, fajitas, pocket pizzas, marinated chicken breasts and much more to their personal cookbooks. Below is their recipe for "Fudgy Fruit Cones", which sounds delicious.

Fudgy Fruit Cones

An original dessert by Girl Scout Camp Chefs. Makes a dozen.

15 ice cream cones
1 21-ounce can apple pie filling
4 bananas, sliced into coins
8 cups chocolate chips
1 pound bag mini marshmallows

Spoon apple filling into 12 cones. Top with banana slices. In a saucepan on a grate over a campfire (or on stovetop), melt chocolate chips and marshmallows, stirring and watching so it doesn’t burn. Spoon mixture into cones. Crush three remaining empty cones and sprinkle atop chocolate. (Or sprinkle on chopped nuts). Let cool and serve.
