Campfire sweet treats options

This winter, you can’t miss having a bonfire!

Fire has certainly attracted mankind throughout history, and today it isn’t the exception. Kids enjoy a lot being around a fire, as well. Campfires can be built on pre-built pits on the fly, in a day outdoors, when camping or even indoors, in a fireplace. No one denies that one of the best parts of a campfire is roasting marshmallows! But besides marshmallows and s’mores, there are other desserts that can be cooked in a fire too. Today we share with you some of the best desserts to be done in a campfire.

Mile Hi Rafting Company, in Clear Creek County, offers outdoor adventure for everyone in the family. We are a family business that has been in these mountains for over 75 years and we believe that there is nothing grander than being in the outdoors.

Some easy and delicious dessert campfire ideas

  • Marshmallows. Ok, so we said we were going to share some desserts besides marshmallows but it’s impossible not to include them in our list. There are ways of adding a twist to them that will upgrade your regular roasted marshmallow. One way is roasting some strawberries and marshmallow in a skewer, and voila! A delicious dessert on the fly. Another option, for adults only, is roasting the marshmallows and dipping them into Bailey’s or any other preferred liquor cream.
  • Banana Boats. These are an all-time favorite, too. Easy and delicious. In tin foil, place a banana, cut it in half with its peel on and then add in your favorite toppings. You may use: mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanut butter, chocolate or caramel syrup, almonds, pecans, honey or anything that you crave for! These cook in about 8 minutes in a bonfire.
  • Dutch Oven desserts. There are many desserts that can be cooked in a Dutch oven. The most popular one is Apple Crisp. For this one you need to fill the Dutch oven half way up with apples. Spread on top a combination of brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and some butter. Cover and cook for about 45 minutes. Another option is brownies. You just have to throw in sugar, eggs, flour, cocoa powder, salt, butter, heavy cream and chocolate chips and mix all together.
