One of the interesting activities your entire family can be involved in, around the campfire, in the evening is trying out fun camp cooking recipes. Not only will this provide an opportunity for your family to bond together, but you will also relish the delicious food made as a result of this activity.
The best part about camp cooking recipes is that you can be as innovative as you like and can use tasty ingredients to prepare some simple dishes. You can cook some yummy dishes like s’mores, or even make a dessert without using any camp cooking equipment.
The best time to try out these fun recipes during your family camping trip is when you crave something sweet, especially after dinner and that too around the campfire. Let us share with you some great camp cooking recipes that are a step-up on the traditional desserts at the campfire.
- Pour some chocolate syrup or put a chocolate bar broken up into pieces, in a cup you can make yourself, out of aluminum foil. Now place this cup near the fire so that the chocolate melts completely.
- Fill a plastic bag or place on a plate some graham crackers that you have crushed.
- Toast some marshmallows the way you usually do.
- Dip these marshmallows into the melted chocolate and then roll them into the graham crackers.
This is a yummy recipe that the kids especially enjoy and the best part is that it is not even the least bit time-consuming. You can keep experimenting with this campfire treat of s’mores, by making slight modifications every time, like melting caramel chocolate bars or even melting chocolate bars with nuts in them.
If you find this too messy away, you can even opt for another way to create the s’more by putting the chocolate bars, the marshmallows, and the graham crackers together in an aluminum foil. Wrap this package up and cook over your campfire for just a minute and upon opening the foil, ‘voila’- a lip-smacking, finger-licking treat.
Fun camp cooking recipes need not necessarily be those of desserts. You can play on any of your recipes by altering your fun foods like sloppy joes, a bit. Other camp recipes include something like tacos in a bag. All you need to do is take some plain tortilla chips in a bag and crush it up. Now you can add other ingredients like salsa, cheese, and lettuce. Mix well and have it straight out of the bag for maximum fun.
