Some More S'mores and other ideas for Campfire Cooking

August 24, 2014

Almost every camping trip whether it involves a tent in the back yard or a million dollar motor home at a luxury resort involves a campfire and smores. OK some luxury resorts won't allow a campfire and the majority of us don't have a million dollar motor homes to go "Camping" in. We do however have travel trailers and fifth wheels and like cooking something over fire. Below you will find some ideas on our favorite campfire foods including some twist's to the ever popular S'mores, an appetizer, a game day favorite and a dessert.

S’mores, are a staple of campfire eats, they are a delight for children and adults alike. 

S'mores Recipes

  • The Kitchen Sink: Chocolate Graham crackers with peanut butter cups, white-chocolate covered pretzels and marshmallows sprinkled with crumbled chocolate wafers.
  • Mint Medley: Chocolate wafer cookies with mint wafer chocolate (or if possible Mint Girl Scout Cookies) and marshmallows.
  • Strawberry Shortcake: Shortbread cookies with white chocolate and strawberry marshmallows or slices of fresh strawberry.
  • Turtles: Add chopped pecans and caramel to a standard-style s’more.
  • S'moreo: Twist open Oreo cookies and add a marshmallow, chocolate and pretzel pieces inside. Re-close and place over tinfoil on embers.
  • Peanut Butter Cup S'mores: Chocolate graham crackers, creamy peanut butter, chocolate squares and marshmallows

OTHER IDEAS

Now we understand that not everyone likes Marshmallows or Chocolate (you're sick, seek help) we have included some other ideas for you to roast over a campfire. 

Pit Roasted Bacon-wrapped Shrimp
1/2 lb medium-to-large-sized shrimp,
1/2 cup fresh or bottled lime juice,
1/4 cup tequila,
6 strips of bacon, cut in halves

Combine lime juice and tequila. Clean shrimp and let them sit in the marinade for one hour. Drain, pat dry, and wrap each shrimp in 1/2 strip of bacon. Arrange on a skewer. Roast bacon-wrapped shrimp over coals, turning occasionally, 3 to 4 inches from heat for about 8 to 10 minutes, until bacon is crisp and browned. Can be served with a favorite dip. Makes about 12. For a non-alcohol version, replace the lime and tequila with margarita mix.


 

Jerk Chicken Wings in-foil
6 chicken wings,
1 tablespoon vegetable oil,
3 tablespoons jerk seasoning,
cilantro,
and lime, cut into wedges

Mix the first 3 ingredients and place on the center of a large piece of heavy-duty foil. Start by meeting the short ends of foil together and fold twice. Then fold in the remaining sides to seal, leaving some room for steam. Place over high heat for 25-30 minutes, flipping the foil packet over once. Carefully remove from fire. Top with cilantro and lime and serve.

And a Dessert or Two

Stuffed Apple
Apple,
cinnamon,
butter,
caramel candies,
raisins
and pecans

Core one apple per person and fill with a pat of butter, cinnamon, caramel candies, raisins and pecans. Cover with tin foil completely and place over glowing embers for about 20 minutes. Let cool slightly and be careful, the insides are hot!


 

Campfire Cones
Sugar or waffle cone,
marshmallows,
chocolate chips,
peanut butter,
nuts and candies

Fill sugar or waffle cone with marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanut butter, nuts and other candies. Wrap in foil and roast for 5 to 7 minutes. Peel off foil and enjoy.
