Campfire cones are a good idea if you’re camping with picky eaters because these are DIY. Just fill up your cone with your favorite fruit and sweets, wrap them in aluminum foil then pop em on top of your campfire for a few minutes. Done!


Campfire Donuts

 Guys, who doesn’t love a good donut? And a campfire donut that’s easy to make? I don’t think I have it in me to ever turn one down. The recipe calls for cinnamon sugar, but you could probably dip them in chocolate or any kind of icing if you wanted. Don’t forget the sprinkles!

These campfire apples do require a bit of prep beforehand, but it just makes it easier on you once you’re out camping. You core some apples, add the dried fruit mixture to the middle, wrap those babies up and toss them onto the fire. You know they’re done when you squeeze them with a set of tongs and they’re tender. So simple!
