We make camper pies, and s'mores too, and canned biscuit dough, rolled into a rope and wrapped around a stick. Cook over the fire on a stick. (spray with butter flavored Pam after cooking and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar). Another favorite is baking cookies. We have an oven that sits over the Coleman stove. You can bake cookies, brownies, cakes or whatever.

Melt various types of chocolate in a bowl beside the camp fire, and dip cookies in the melted chocolate.

one of the healthy campfire snacks we make for the cub scouts are fire baked apples.

cut an apple in half and remove core, sprinkle both halves with brown sugar, add a good pinch of raisins, drizzle with lemon juic, close the apple back up and wrap in aluminum foil. place apples in the coals around the fire for about 20 minutes or until the apples are soft.

Sweet baby jebus yes. That was my first ever Dutch Oven cooking experience, so darn good!!

We also use to take a green twig, swirl biscuit dough around it, cook/spin low and slow, and then "pipe" in pudding and put that same soft chocolate from Smores all over it. Camp Eclair. The pudding(even back when I was a kid) was out of like one of these cups/single serve thing-a-ma-bobs. Nothing like going to tent with sticky fingers, lol.

Camping was always in-tents(intense), lol.

The coolest campfire dessert I ever had, had no name but was a twist on a pineapple upside down cake.

It began with a piece of canned biscuit dough rolled or pressed out flat and then wrapped around a canned pineapple ring that had a large dollop of a sweet ricotta mixture (cheese, sugar, orange peel, cinnamon in the middle and a maraschino cherry added. It was made into a packet and then cooked on foil next to the fire (hot rock) turning until it looked about right. It was a bit charred on one side and totally wonderful.

My Grand kids like these two first we pour cake or muffin batter into a hollowed out orange. Replace the lid to the orange wrap in foil and bake over coals about 10 min or til done. or they will gobble up fruit cobbler in biscuit mix. prepare your biscuit mix. pat oblong shape on two thicknesses of foil. Spread with 1/2 can of fruit pie filling fold over seal and prick dough. Wrap completely in foil and bake 7 min on each side. serve with creme or plain.

I haven't been to too many campfires in my life (highly allergic to smoke), but a few years ago while cooking for a youth retreat I was introduced to a very fun play on s'mores - we were sitting on a slope above the actual campfire and taking it all in. One of the kids came up with a roasted marshmallow on a stick for each of us that had been dipped in melted dark chocolate and rolled in graham crumbs seasoned lightly with cinnamon.

What did they call it? S'mores on a stick of course!
