Malls get boring and beaches get old. Why don’t you try camping with your friends? You will surely have a good time in the woods, setting up your tent, cooking your own foods and hunting in the wild. Camping sounds like a great adventure and you really don’t have to worry about what you’re going to eat in the forest. Here’s a quick guide that will help you come up with the tastiest recipes over your campfire:
Toast marshmallows on a stick over your campire. When toasted, sandwich the marshmallows with two graham crackers. Add small pieces of chocolate inside.
2. Campfire Cones
Chop apples and bananas or any fruit of your choice into smaller pieces. Put together in a bowl your sliced fruits, chocolates and marshmallows. Wrap your cones with foil. Stuff the cone with your mixed fruits, chocolates and marshmallows. Toast the cone over the fire.
3. Barbecued Apple Crisp
Before leaving home to camp, prepare the foil recipe that you will bring in the woods. Mix nutmeg, cinnamon, oats, flour and sugars. Pour butter and mix. Put the mixture in the fridge. Meanwhile, slice apples and spread in the mix from the fridge. Squeeze in lemon juice. Spread your mix a foil and wrap it into squares. Bring it to your camp and toast over fire during lunch.
4. Banana S’mores
Preheat your grill to medium heat. Partly slice banana into halves, lengthwise. Put on an aluminum foil. Put in marshmallows and chocolate chips in between the slices. Wrap in aluminum foil and grill. Once grilled, unwrap it and put cereal or sprinkles on top.
5. Blueberry Cobler
Ready your grill charcoals. Mix blueberries, sugar and flour then transfer mixture into baking pan. Cook over the grill for 10 minutes and then stir. Cook for another 10 minutes and make sure the juices have been released. Put tiny bits of biscuits on top of the blueberry mixture and cook for 10 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
Bonus. Pan Fried Pizza
Just like home made oven baked pizza, but made in your campfire pan.
