Campfire Convenient Sweet Rolls
(Submitted by Amanda Budnick)
Melt 1 stick of butter in a fire friendly saucepan, set aside, spread cinnamon-sugar (half to one cup) on a plate, set next to melted butter, slightly stretch and wrap buttermilk biscuits (pillsbury or any other brand from the can) around the end of a stick (it should look like a long twisty type candy sucker) hold over fire and cook in the heat not the flame, like for toasty marshmallows, until puffy and golden-done. When done, the dough will slide off the stick easily, dip in butter, then roll in the cinnamon sugar. Viola! Fresh cinnamon rolls by the campfire. We haven't met anyone who didn't love this one yet.

Baked Apples
Cut the cores out of fresh apples and try not to poke the peel on the bottom. Fill the middle with cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins and nuts if preferred. Wrap in aluminum foil and heat over the fire. When heated open up the gooey treat and eat it with a spoon.

Gooey Bananas
Leave the banana peel on and with a knife, cut a slit from top to bottom, but don't cut all the way through. Open the banana slightly to put one or two pieces of chocolate (or chocolate chips) inside and then top that with small marshmallows. Wrap it up in aluminum foil and heat over the campfire.

The classic camping snack! Begin by toasting a large marshmallow over the fire. Next place it on a graham cracker. Place a piece of chocolate (or chocolate chips) over the marshmallow, and top it with another graham cracker. You can also put the smores together and then wrap it in aluminum foil and heat over the fire.


Ingredients: Soft-shelled tortillas, Chocolate chips, Mini marshmallows, Peanut butter, Aluminum foil

Spread peanut butter in tortilla shell, sprinkle in chocolate chips and marshmallows, roll up torilla then wrap in aluminum foil. Set the taco in the coals for roughly 10 minutes depending upon your fire temperature. Check for doneness (if everything is melted) before eating then enjoy your gooey, yummy treat!
For the "slacker camper" these can also be done in the microwave, but beware of inflating marshmallows!
