Are you a dessert person? Like your sweets? Find it difficult to satisfy these cravings while camping, unless it’s a store-bought treat? RecProtect believes that you shouldn’t have to miss out on tasty treats just because you are in the wilderness. That’s why RecProtect is bringing you the best unique s’mores and campfire treat recipes to please your sweet tooth while camping:
While leaving the base intact, cut the core from an apple. Fill the middle with granola or crumbled oatmeal cookies, sprinkling the top with a touch of cinnamon. Wrap the entire apple in two layers of tinfoil. Tuck these pouches along the embers of your campfire for about 10 minutes. Serving with ice cream further elevates this campfire treat.
Campfire Banana Boats
Slice the banana peel down the middle of the concave side, just enough to pull the peel and banana slightly apart. Then fill your banana with whatever ingredients tickle your fancy in a single line down the center. Some suggested options for topping include: milk chocolate, mini marshmallows, crumbled graham crackers, fruit/berries, Nutella, chopped nuts, caramel sauce, peanut butter, etc. Then wrap your entire banana in tinfoil before placing it on the campfire grill to warm for a few minutes.
Campfire Dessert Cones
Provide each camper with an ice cream sugar cone, and choices of toppings, such as: chocolate chips, M&M’s, miniature marshmallows, salted peanuts, etc. Fill your cone with the toppings that you enjoy most before wrapping the entire cone in tin foil. Place these packets on the campfire grill and heat for approximately 10 minutes. Each cone will be original and serve the interests of that individual camper, making this a great treat even for the pickiest of eaters.
Campfire S’mores Nachos
Break up graham crackers and spread them in the bottom of a foil pan. Sprinkle mini marshmallows and chocolate chips on top of the graham crackers. Repeat these steps with additional layers. Cover the pan with tinfoil, carefully sealing the edges. Place foil pan on the cooking grate over the campfire and wait for the marshmallows and chocolate to melt before enjoying!
Grilled Shortcake Skewers
Cut fruit, we suggest strawberries and pineapple, and a pre-made/bought pound cake into cubes, before alternating to thread them onto a BBQ skewer. Grill these kabobs over the fire for about 6-8 minutes, until the fruit is soft and cake is toasted. Topping with whipped cream adds a little extra to this sweet treat.
S’mores Chocolate Switch-Up
Have fun enjoying traditional S’mores, with a twist. Offer a variety of different chocolate in place of just milk chocolate, such as: KitKat, Reese’s, Aero, Coffee Crisp, etc. This offers not only an elevated taste to an old-style classic, but also allows everyone to pick the chocolate topping that best fits their personal desires.
RecProtect’s final pro-tip for making camping treats a breeze is to prepare all components [ie. slicing fruits, crumbling graham crackers etc.] ahead of time for easy assembly and quick cook times when on the campsite.
