Kids roast marshmallows over a fire. This blog is about campfire desserts that go beyond just s'mores

It’s hard to beat conversation with loved ones around the campfire at the end of a long day of exploring. What’s the one thing that can make it better? Dessert! We’re not talking the kind of treats that take you away from the conversation and back into the camper for baking. We mean simple campfire desserts that can be made right over the campfire.

The Most Delicious Campfire Desserts Out There

Don’t settle for basic roasted mallows when these delicious desserts exist! We made a list of delectable treats that are a step above s’mores and will make you the talk of the campground. You won’t miss a minute and the whole family can participate! Read on for our favorite campfire dessert recipes.

Campfire strawberries are a twist on roasting marshmallows that the kids will love. All you do is dip the strawberries (or really any other fruit) in the marshmallow flush then roast them over the campfire until it reaches your desired toastiness! And it’s fruit, so who says these campfire desserts aren’t healthy?

S’more Banana Boats

Campfire cones are a good idea if you’re camping with picky eaters because these are DIY. Just fill up your cone with your favorite fruit and sweets, wrap them in aluminum foil then pop em on top of your campfire for a few minutes. Done!

 

Campfire Donuts

Guys, who doesn’t love a good donut? And a campfire donut that’s easy to make? I don’t think I have it in me to ever turn one down. The recipe calls for cinnamon sugar, but you could probably dip them in chocolate or any kind of icing if you wanted. Don’t forget the sprinkles!

Campfire Apples

These campfire apples do require a bit of prep beforehand, but it just makes it easier on you once you’re out camping. You core some apples, add the dried fruit mixture to the middle, wrap those babies up and toss them onto the fire. You know they’re done when you squeeze them with a set of tongs and they’re tender. So simple!

    The idea that caught by eye the most is the campfire peach. I normally do a bonfire in the winter months for friends and family and can see some of these recipes being used. But as stated before I am most interested in the peach recipe. I would love to add ice cream to it

    This list is so awesome. I often organize camping events for my clients, I’ll certainly start this trend of making desserts by the campfire.
