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.
  5. Cook banana for five minutes, unwrap and enjoy!

I agree with sugarpetals I'm sorry to say but she is right.
