11 Campfire Recipes You Must Try

Camping season is upon us! Summertime is the perfect time to escape with your family into the woods and camp under the stars. Kids spend their days wading in the creeks, fishing, and enjoying time without technology. Families can roast marshmallows, play board games, and watch the stars at night.

You don’t have to rely just on grilling hot dogs and hamburgers. You can enjoy desserts other than s’mores as well! Campfire recipes have come a long way. Here are some campfire recipes you must try with your families this summer.

Campfire Cones

Instead of the traditional s’mores, campfire cones are versatile and can be prepared ahead of time. Stuff a waffle cone with a variety of delicious items, like marshmallows, chocolate chips, strawberries, bananas, mini Reese’s Cups, and more! There is no end to the top ideas; its whatever you want to use!

Wrap the cones in foil and let them heat over the grill until all of the flavors melt together. Your kids will ask for them multiple times.

Camping Mac & Cheese

Kids love mac & cheese, but who wants to boil the pot of water while camping? No one! Instead, this recipe for camping mac & cheese is made ahead of time. You make the recipe and divide into four different containers. The smaller portions are easier and faster to reheat.

If you have several people camping with you, try doubling the recipe. Make sure to keep the containers in the cooler heat if you don’t plan to eat them quickly.
