18 Kid-Friendly Campfire Recipes


I know I was usually the only kid who refused s’mores at summer camp because I don’t like chocolate or marshmallows. If you are like me, you are in luck because I have found some easy recipes to try with your kids at your next campfire or camping trip! Here’s my list of 18 kid-friendly campfire recipes you need go try today.

Apples by the Fire

Apple desserts are my favorite! All you need are Granny Smith apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Banana Splits

How about a warm banana split?

Brown Bears

Its like a hot churro! You simply need refrigerated biscuits, cinnamon, sugar, and butter.

Campfire Cookies

S’mores, but with cookies! You just need cookies, white and chocolate chips, and small marshmallows.

Campfire Cones

How about s’mores in a waffle cone? Campfire Cones filled with your favorite s’more ingredients can be made on the grill, in the oven, or heated over a campfire!

Camp Eclairs

No description is needed for these…just try them out!

Campfire Monkey Bread

Every kid likes money bread.  All you need are refrigerated biscuits, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon sugar.

Campfire Tarts

All you need are refrigerated biscuits, pie filling, and whipped cream.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Campfire Burritos

You could fill it with other ingredients like pie filling as well.

Grilled Mexican Street Corn

Who doesn’t love Mexican Street Corn? All you need is fresh corn with husk, mayo, lime, cilantro, chile powder or paprika, salt, and cotija cheese.

Orange Peel Campfire Brownies

Now this one I am going to have to try!

Orange Rolls

Refrigerated biscuits cooked in orange peels then topped with icing!

Roasted veggie kabob (with or without meat)

This is a sneaky way to get your kids to enjoy more vegetables. Chop your veggies of choice and coat with a little olive oil. Bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, onion and zucchini all go well with a smoky flavor.

Then, place on a skewer (or stick). Hold the veggies by the fire, rotating until they’re ready. Add a little butter or salt and pepper.

Roasted fruit

You can also roast plenty of fruits — like apples, banana, peaches or pineapples. Just stick it on a skewer and warm it up. Brush the fruit with some melted butter or drizzle with a little honey.


Oreos…need I say more?

S’mores Nachos

Alright, I’ll give you one more…all you need are all the regular s’mores ingredients, dumped in a disposable baking tray.

Spider Dogs

This is a fun way to roast hot dogs!

Stuffed Marshmallows

A quick, easy and fun campfire dessert, stuffed marshmallows are perfect for popping. Take a piece of candy, such as a peanut butter cup, and shove it into the center of a marshmallow. Pierce your stuffed marshmallow with a skewer, and warm it over the campfire, then pop it into your mouth and enjoy.
