Campfire Dessert Recipes

Campfire Pastries

by Cameron (USA)
When we go camping, we make these camp fire pastries using hinged molds. We put buttered slices of bread on each half of the mold, buttered side down, and put a spoonful of pie filling from a can on one half's piece of bread. Then we close the hinged mold and it gets smashed together. Then we hold it over the fire for a while like toasting a marshmallow and after a few minutes you can open up the mold and you have a hot toasty pastry pie! Really good with a little powdered sugar.

Doughnut on a Stick

by Angel Roney (Middlebrook, Mo)          
Hot and fresh over the fire!
We use cheap biscuits in a can.(Crescent dough can also be used)Start by rolling a biscuit with your hands till you get a rope. Wrap aluminum foil from the top of the stick down about 5 inches.(This will allow for the doughnut to slide off easily)

Wrap the dough rope around the aluminum foil. Cook over fire like a marshmallow. When done, roll in melted butter and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Icing is good on these too. Enjoy! Our kids do!

Campfire Dump Cake

by LINDA              
1 can pineapple tid-bits
1 can cherry pie filling
1 yellow cake mix (or whatever kind you like)
1/2 cup butter cubed

Grease or spray an old pot, or a tin-foil pan to try and prevent sticking. Pour the can of pineapple tid-bits in the bottom....juice and all.
Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the pineapple. Blob the cherry pie filler around the dry cake mix.
Randomly drop the cubed butter over that.
Cover with tin-foil. Place pot in the burned down coals of the campfire for around 30 minutes (depends on the heat of the fire).

Chocolate Fondue

by Lisa (Canada)
You need one soup can, tealight and small foil tart tin per person. The adult takes the tin can and using a bottle opener opens 3 holes around the top and the bottom of the tin. Start the tealight, then place in tin can.

Put the tart tin in the top. Add mini chocolate chips. Let the chips melt. Then use the skewer to dip strawberries, angel food cake or grapes. I make the angel food cake before I leave for camp. You can also use pound cake.
