Cooking by campfire is one of the charms of camping out. Grilled chicken, sausages, bean soup etc are all time favorites. When it comes to campfire desserts or treats, S’more is a classic pick. These sumptuous treats are made using roasted marshmallows on a Hershey’s chocolate bar, sandwiched between two graham crackers.
A classic S’more tastes great but they start to get boring when you have had them for days and days. Basically add some twist to the original recipe to get new campfire dessert ideas. You can make a mix using tiny roasted marshmallows, some peanuts, honey graham cereal, raisins and naturally some chocolate chips. Toss the ingredients in a plastic bag and shake it to mix. Serve it in cups and enjoy the sweet and crunchy treat.
Campfire desserts are not all about marshmallows though. Plenty of campfire dessert recipes involve using fresh fruits like apples, bananas and peaches. Baked apples make simple, tasty and healthy desserts. They are also simple to prepare. You will need a few apples, brown sugar, raisins, cinnamon and aluminum foil. Core an apple and place it on a square piece of aluminum foil. Stuff the core of the apple with the raisins, brown sugar as well as a pinch of cinnamon. Then wrap the foil around the apple and toss it on the coals to bake. Take it off the coals after ten minutes or it may burn. You can alter the recipe by filling the apple with some other forms of stuffing. You can try using butter and caramels or even whipped cream.
You can also combine different kinds of fruits, cereals and nuts to make healthy campfire treats. Children love treats like banana boats, eggs on toast, baked peaches. To make banana boats, you will have to peel back a section of the skin from the banana. Take care that you do not remove it entirely. Then create slit down the exposed portion of the banana. Gently pull aside both sides of the slit and create a pouch which you can fill in with nuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter and marshmallows. You can vary the fillings as per your choice. Then pull the peel back over the banana. Wrap the banana in aluminum foil and let it roast on the coals. After about ten minutes, take the bananas off the coals. Remove the foil and dig in to the warm, sweet, nutty treat. You can bake peaches in the same way that you bake apples. Pit the peaches and cut it in two. Sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon over the peaches and wrap them in tin foil. Then toss them onto the coals and let them bake for a while. Allow them to cool and remove the foil. Enjoy the warm, caramel peaches. You can also make a fruit cup by mixing small bits of fruits like bananas, melons, grapes, apples, pears etc. Mix the fruit with some yogurt and serve fresh.
