Just because you are camping, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get your sweet tooth on! Forget about pre prepared, unhealthy dessert options (sorry, no Twinkies), and here are some easy to follow recipes for an after dinner treat!
Treats on a Stick
There are many desserts that can be made on a stick. First, the apple on a stick is really simple. Place an apple on a stick and put over the fire. When the skin begins to peel, dip it in a concoction of sugar and cinnamon. Place over fire until a glaze is formed. Then, eat off the glaze and some apple, dip in the sugar and cinnamon, and cook again. Repeat until the apple is gone!
Smores are also a common dessert that involve a stick. Place a marshmallow on a stick and cook over the fire until golden brown. Place on a graham cracker and add a piece of chocolate. Smoosh together using another graham cracker as a top. Enjoy!
Banana Boat Recipe
- 1 banana for each person
- Small marshmallows
- Chocolate chips
This recipe is great for the kids. Cut each banana in half, leaving on the skin. Fill the banana with marshmellows and chocolate chips on top. Place on the coals and allow to cook. You can also use foil on the bottom of the boats to ensure they don’t burn too much. Take off coals and allow to cool, eat when warm. Enjoy!
Chocolate Pie Cups
- Crushed grahams
- Instant pudding (chocolate)
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate, nuts, fruits
First, make your pudding, chill in your cooler. Then, melt the butter, about 1/2 cup per cup of graham crumbs. Put a layer of the grahams at the bottom of a cup (cup cake holder) and pack down. After, add the pudding. Then, you can let the kids add their favorite goodies on top. Add the whipped cream and enjoy!
