Kidzworld Kitchen: Campfire Treats

Nothing feels like summer more than enjoying the great outdoors with a camping trip. There’s something awesome about leaving the phones and TV at home and spending time with friends and family around the campfire telling stories and enjoying good food. The tricky thing about camping food is finding things that taste great, require very little preparation and, most importantly, can be cooked over the grill or an open fire. Everyone brings the staples: wieners, marshmallows, steaks and burgers, but here are just a few ideas for special treats that are wrapped in foil (for breezy cleanup) and cooked right in your campfire. Treat everyone to fresh muffins in the morning, stuffed apples for dessert and banana boats for a late night treat to replace the been-there-done-that s’mores.  Enjoy your outdoor adventure!

Grilled Banana Boats

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/8 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/8 cup small marshmallows
  • Other toppings you might like (toffee chips, caramel pieces, berries, sprinkles, coconut, peanut butter, etc.)

  1. Cut banana lengthwise and stuff with marshmallows
  2. Stuff with chocolate chips and any other toppings
  3. Wrap banana in tin foil
  4. Place on hot coals or near campfire.

I'm wearing a plain gray t-shirt with pink-magenta shorts and my hair is tied back in the littlest messiest ponytail you've ever seen! I didn't even tie it with a hair tie, I tied it with my cloth headband! I'm recovering from a cough so that's why I'm so messy XD

I'm an only child so it really depends on things, they're not strict when it comes to most things. I can wear what I want unless you know, it's like, completely outta question. I can cuss and all, like say one or two "okay-cuss words" around them, just as long as it's not AT them. They're fine with spending money lol, as much as it takes. I don't really ask for stuff, but I get stuff for no reason sometimes. It can be a problem,  cuz I consider it throwing money down the drain. but I'm somewhat grateful. but my parents are also overprotective LOL so I can't go out too far on my own and stuff. "Watch out for weird boys, honey." All that craap, but I guess I can deal with it.
