Marshmallows are a must for any camping trip! With campfire cones, you can enjoy lots of goodies in one cone!
To make these you will need:
Items to fill the cones: marshmallows, chocolate chips, butterschotch chips, mini peanut butter cups, candy bars, raspberries, strawberrie, bananas, etc (The possibilities are endless!!)
Fill your cup with your choice of items
Wrap the cone with foil and lay on the grate over the fire for 3-5 minutes. Use tongs to remove and unwrap the cone. Let it cool for a couple of minutes and enjoy!! So simple and so yummy!!
The best part is that you don't have to have a campfire to make these, you can make them at home in your oven as well!!

Here is another sweet treat for your next trip.
1 package crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
Mix the cinnamon and sugar
Take individual crescent rolls and wrap each one around a skewer
Roll in the cinnamon/sugar mix
Cook over the fire 5 about five minutes, while rotating it often
**These are delicious enough on their own, but if you'd like to sweeten them up even more you can make a glaze to drizzle over them. Just combine 1/4C powdered sugar and 2-3T of water. I hope you love this delicious and easy treat!

We have some sweet treats above, but what about a snack that is more on the savory side? Why not try this campfire nacho recipe from pipandebby.com?
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 jalapeno pepper sliced
- 1 bunch green onions thinly sliced, white and green parts
- 1 bag tortilla chips
- 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
- 2 cups iceberg lettuce chopped
- 1 tomato chopped
- salsa or taco sauce for drizzling, dipping
In a cast-iron skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat (using grill, campfire or stove top) until no longer pink. Create a hole in the center of the meat and add jalapenos and green onions. Cook, stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl and line the bottom of the hot skillet with chips.
Pour the ground beef-green onion mixture evenly over the chips. Top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and salsa/taco sauce. Dig in immediately!
- These can be versatile and can be catered to your liking. Swap out the veggies for different ones or use a flavored variety of potato chip.
- Use sausage or chicken for the meat instead of ground beef or add avocados and sour cream to the top. Get creative!
- Once the nachos are layered, try putting a lid over the top to trap the steam which will help the cheese to melt more quickly. Don’t have a lid? Use aluminum foil!
Don't these look simple and delicious?!?!
I hope the next time you plan a camping trip, a fire in your backyard, or even just want a new snack to try at home, you will give these ideas a try! They are super simple and delicious!!
