Campfire Recipes for the Ultimate Family Vacation Adventure

Campfire snacks. Just thinking about it makes me hungry! Read on to find out our favorite campfire desserts for the ultimate family vacation adventure, or share your campfire recipes with us. Perfect for a nice night under the stars, staring into a burning fire.

Some of these recipes you have probably hear of before. Others may be new. Plan on cooking up at least a couple of these campfire snacks at your next fire. Read on to see campfire recipes submitted by other RV travel with kids viewers (and share your own!)

campfire-snacks-02; smores S'Mores
  • Graham Crackers
  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate Bar
Take a graham cracker and break it in half.

Place one small square of chocolate (approximately ¼ of a standard sized bar) on top.

Now, put two marshmallows on a stick and brown them over the campfire. I'm from the camp that you want the marshmallow brown and golden, not black or burned.

I put mine close to a hot flame and rotate frequently. Others in my household simply ignite the marshmallow and blow like crazy, leaving a melty pile of black goo in their wake. To each his own. Once your marshmallow is the desired doneness, sandwich it between the graham crackers and pull. S'Mores!

Campfire Snacks: Banana Boats
  • Bananas
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Do not peel your bananas. Make a slit lengthwise, cutting both the peel and the banana. Stuff the cavity with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. Wrap the entire concoction in aluminum foil and cook over the campfire for 5 minutes. The chocolate should be melted and the banana squishy. Unwrap, place in a bowl and eat with a spoon.

    Campfire Snacks: Baked Apples
  • Apples
  • Raisins
  • Walnuts
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Carefully cut the core of an apple out of the center, but leave the apple whole. Stuff the empty cavity with your choice of raisins, walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Put a dab of butter on top. Grease a piece of aluminum foil with butter, and wrap the apple in it.

    Place the wrapped apple in campfire embers, turning every few minutes. Cook 20-25 minutes. Remove apple with tongs; it is extremely hot! Allow to cool for a few minutes before attempting to open the foil. Place in a bowl and eat with a spoon.

    Campfire Snakes
    campfire-snacks-01; groop of kids roasting marshmallows for smores
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits or crescent rolls
  • ½ c sugar
  • ½ tbsp. Cinnamon
  • ½ stick sliced butter
  • These are really fun for kids to make! Basically, you're going to take the biscuits or crescent rolls and rub them between your hands to form a snake...around the top of a stick to be cooked over the fire! Once your snake is secure, cook slowly over the fire being careful not to burn.

    Note: if you are someone who likes to set your marshmallows on fire, think twice before doing that with crescent rolls! The result is NOT the same!

    When your snake is done, rub with butter. Have the remaining ingredients combined in a ziploc baggie. Remove your snake from the stick and toss in the bag to coat. Enjoy!

    Campfire Eclairs
  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 2 vanilla pudding cups
  • 1 can chocolate frosting
  • Like the snakes, form the dough of the crescent rolls around your cooking stick in a tube. Perhaps less snaky and just a little thicker this time. Cook slowly over the fire (don't make me have the marshmallow conversation again.)

    Once they are done, let cool for a few minutes, and carefully pull off the stick. Fill with pudding and top with frosting. Yum!
