Campfire Treat that does NOT have Marshmallows

We are thinking about setting up our tent in our yard and having a campout tonight, campfire included. However, 5yo DD does not like marshmallows, so her enjoying a roasted one or a Smore is not going to be possible.

What else can you do dessert-like over a campfire?

  • We used to have the pie maker things. You would put two pieces of bread in there and spread a fruit mix in and then roast it over the campfire. You could also do grilled cheese that way. I picked one up at Walmart not to long back in the outdoor grilling dept.

  • Chocolate Bananas
    This next one we used at Scout-o-Rama where we invite the public to see what Scouting has to offer, and we had people lined up to taste these. Take a strip of tin foil about 12” long, cut a whole banana lengthways, then stuff it with chocolate, or caramel or Rolos (chocolate/caramel chucks). Squeeze the banana back together and wrap it tightly in foil. Put the foil-wrapped banana on a fire or on BBQ coals for about 3-5 minutes. Take if off the coals, open it up and dig out the gooey, chocolatey insides with a fork or spoon. CAUTION: It’s Hot! Use tongs to pull it out of the coals and to peel back the foil.

    Cinnamon Apple
    Much like the bananas above, but this time you use an apple core remover, knife, or the end of a potato peeler to remove the core of an apple but with the apple still intact! You want to make a hole big enough to put in some brown sugar and cinnamon.

  • This isn't a dessert but get some hotdogs and cut them at both ends making 4 legs on each side and cook them....making spider dogs! I did this with my daughter and she loved them! It didn't seem like an ordinary hot dog to was fun and they look really cool

  • We core apples but leave on the bottom skin and fill the hole with red hots and wrap the whole thing in foil and toss in the coals. Very good (c: The bananas described above are called Banana Boats and you can add mini marshamallows to those too for those in your family who do like marshmallows.

  • The Banana Boats posted above are awesome! We also like the Cored apples with red hots, but we've never done them outside, only inside in the oven. I can't wait to try them outside!
