Need Cub Scout Desserts (no dutch oven)

My son is in the Cub Scouts and their pack is going camping in several weeks. The Dens always have a dessert contest and since my husband is his Den Leader, it is our job to come up with the dessert ideas. Hot desserts always seem to win over the cold desserts. The problem is that the boys are 9 and 10 years old and the Cub Master won't allow them to use Dutch Ovens and the majority of desserts I've found for campouts on line are for Dutch Ovens. Can anyone send me some dessert recipe ideas for our contest that 9 and 10 year olds can help prepare? We've gotten third and second place in the past and we want to win first place this year! Thanks for your help.

So, what are they allowed to cook in, on, with? Or do you just want ideas for cold desserts?

Well, other than S'mores, have you thought about cutting a slit in a banana, and while leaving the peel on and the banana inside, add some chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows. Wrap in foil, then cook over a fire until hot and gooey.

My mother used to core an apple, and stuff the hole with a mixture of butter, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins, and wrap that up in foil, for me to bake in the coals of a fire.

Well, this isn't a gourmet rice pudding but it will work on a Coleman stove on a campout:

Minute Rice (white)
Water
Butter
Sugar
Vanilla extract
Cinnamon, ground
Rasins
Chopped nuts - walnuts or pecans (optional)

Obviously - all amounts are to taste based on the amount of rice you make.

Add water, butter, rasins and a few drops of vanilla to a covered pot and bring to a boil. Add rice, stir well, put lid back on pot and remove from the heat - let stand 5 minutes or until water is absorbed.

Add the sugar, cinnamon and nuts - stir well and serve while still warm.

how about campers ice cream??

OK it's not a hot dish--but it's great home made ice cream..
Put ice and rock salt a gallon ziplock bag. In a quart ziplock bag put in a cup of milk, two teaspoons of sugar and a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla(or just use your favorite ice cream mixture). Seal the quart bag, place in the gallon bag and agitate for 10 minutes or so. You will have nicely frozen ice cream.

Okay, so most any stovetop dessert would work.

I love Michael's idea about warm rice pudding! mmm MMMM!!

Here's another one that looks good No Bake Peach Crisp Recipe - Dessert Recipes

Sounds like a fun challenge! Good luck!
