Campfire Cones

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:

Waffle cones

Foil

Items to fill the cones: marshmallows, chocolate chips, butterschotch chips, mini peanut butter cups, candy bars, raspberries, strawberrie, bananas, etc (The possibilities are endless!!)

Directions:

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!! 

Campfire Cinnamon Roll Ups

Here is another sweet treat for your next trip. 

Ingredients:

1 package crescent rolls

1/4 cup sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

Skewers

Directions:

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!

Campfire Nachos

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?

Equipment

  • Skillet

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

  • 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!!
