Campfire desserts

I wanted to share a few things. When we go camping we have a couple desserts we enjoy making.
First one is just s'mores. Toast the marshmallows then sandwich with some chocolate between graham crackers and enjoy.
Second one banana boats. Take a banana and cut in half almost in half so you have a small 'boat'. Add marshmallows and some peanut butter chips or a small spoon of peanut butter and some chocolate chips or chocolate bar broken up and wrap in foil and set on coals about 5 minutes.
What campfire desserts do you love?

S'mores with dark chocolate. Okay--growing up, they weren't with dark chocolate, now they are. Not a camping dessert--I don't camp, but last summer when I took my 80-year old parents to my cousin's cabin at Lake of the Woods, we had S'mores (toasted the marshmellows over the fire pit). My mom has dementia but she remembers the Lake (the cabin was her parents' cabin and she spent every summer there growing up). When I was little, we did go camping, and S'mores were part of every camping trip. It was so much fun to make S'mores with my parents at the Lake--my dad went and found the forked branches on which to toast the marshmellows. Great memories to make now--and maybe enjoy later. We also made S'mores plus where we toasted the marshmellows and added a dollop of homemade vanilla ice cream to the sandwich (another childhood memory of being at the Lake--turning the ice cream container crank...). I have the cabin this August and my brother is joining us this year. We'll be making S'mores again!

We had pie irons that Mom would use to make fruit pies. Butter the bread, spoon of pie filling in the middle and close the iron. Cook on the fire and you have a nice little fruit pie. Sometimes we would make pizzas the same way with pizza sauce and cheese in the middle. We would do s'mores but the fruit pies were our favorites. http://www.firepies.com/roundiron.html
