Looking to go on a camping trip soon? You might be busy preparing all the essentials, but never forget all the delicious food you want to enjoy with good company. How about some campfire desserts? Here are 10 easy and delicious campfire dessert ideas you can try!
Cinnamon Rolls on a Stick
If you’re looking for other campfire desserts on a stick aside from the usual s’mores, try this one instead.
To begin this recipe, unravel the dough then begin twisting around a skewer or a stick. Set the skewer near the fire but away from any direct flames. Let the dough cook until brown.
This one is as simple as it sounds. Slice an apple and gather butter, brown sugar, and any desired toppings. Add all of the ingredients together then wrap in aluminum foil.
To bake, set the wrapped ingredients on hot coals. You can also slice the apple thinner for some campfire apple crisp.
Roasted Strawberries Covered in Marshmallow Fluff
This simple recipe is sure to be a crowd favorite. It also serves as a healthier alternative to s’mores without having to give up any of the marshmallow goodness.
Unique Campfire Dessert Ideas: Roasted Starbursts
This recipe is sure to please all the candy lovers in the group.
Simply gather your favorite flavors of starbursts, pop them on a stick, and get roasting! Be sure to let the candy cool before eating, as the starbursts can get quite hot.
Maple Syrup Kettle Corn
Cover the bottom of a pot in oil and let heat. Add popcorn seeds and stir. Right before the kernels begin to pop, add in 1/4 – 1/2 cup of maple syrup along with white sugar.
Campfire Banana Split
Peel a banana and cut it open. Add toppings to your heart’s desire, wrap in tin foil, then bake. Be sure to rotate the banana while cooking and open it carefully after baking.
Baked Candied Sweet Yams
This recipe is too simple to mess up and could easily be one of the best campfire desserts in foil!
Simply cut open a yam then add butter. Sprinkle on some brown sugar, cinnamon, and mini marshmallows. Wrap in foil then cook for 12-15 minutes.
Nutella and Biscoff Cookie S’mores
Going beyond your usual campfire smores is one of the best way to look for smores alternatives.
The Nutella spread is infinitely more simple than trying to spread a block of chocolate while the Biscoff cookies take a traditional camping favorite to an entirely new level.
Prepare the ingredients and melt the marshmallows as you would with traditional s’mores.
Grab a can of instant dinner rolls, open, and cut the pieces into halves. Roast the dough without setting it directly into the flames.
Add sugar and cinnamon into a bag then mix. When the dough is cooked, roll in butter then drop into the mixture bag. Shake, shake, shake!
Grab another can of instant dinner rolls to make these donuts. Separate the pieces and puncture holes into the dough, carefully stretching the dough out.
Cook in oil over an open fire. Dump powdered sugar into a bag and add the cooked dough. Shake and serve!
These campfire dessert ideas are a must try, especially those who are going on a camping trip with their kids. A touch of sugar in your trip would make it extra sweet.
