Campfire Dessert Recipes
There is nothing like gathering around the campground fire in the evening. The crackle of the flames, the crickets in the distance, and the stars up above. One of the only things that can improve the evening is something sweet to cook up over the flames. There is always the classic s’more – but this summer consider trying some new campfire dessert recipes.
Campfire eclairs are fun and simple to cook up. You just need to make up some vanilla pudding in your RV or before your trip to stash in your cooler. Take a long stick and wrap foil around the end of it. Coat the foil with non-stick cooking spray or butter. Open a can of crescent roll dough and wrap the dough from one roll around the end of the stick, pressing the seam tightly together where the two ends meet. Roast the dough slowly over the flame until all sides are golden brown. Slide the roll off the stick and fill it with the pudding. You can top it with nutella, chocolate frosting, or peanut butter.
This dessert is a fun one for kids to put together. Get a package of ice cream cones. Fill the cone with a combination of mini marshmallows, white or milk chocolate chips, m&ms, and peanuts. Wrap the cones in foil and cook over the campfire for about 7-10 minutes.
Campfire Banana Boats
This is a simple dessert that is completely customizable to individual tastes. You simply slice open a banana, fill it with toppings, wrap it in foil and then place it over the fire. When choosing toppings aim for something melty, something sweet and something crunchy. Some possible combinations are:
- Strawberry hazelnut: nutella, strawberry chunks, and crunchy chopped hazelnuts
- Samoa: chocolate chips, toasted coconut, and caramel sauce
- Snickers: chocolate chips, caramel sauce, and salty peanuts
- Banana split: chocolate chips, strawberry chunks, marshmallows and cherries
