Forget what you learned at camp, these are the best recipes known to man.

There are a few basics that we tried to stick to when developing these recipes (and some we stole). We wanted to stay grounded in tradition, so they all have the basic graham cracker (or some variation) and marshmallows. Let’s get right into it.

The Elvis Jumpsuit is an interesting cacophony of tastes. Because of the slippery gooeyness of the ingredients, each bite gives a sensation of a different taste. Here’s what it takes:

  • Graham Cracker
  • Marshmallow
  • Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup
  • Banana Slice
  • Bacon (bits or slices)

Choco-Caramel Bacon

This recipe is proof that bacon can make anything better. I used bacon bits, but a slice of bacon broken in half will be your best bet for a burst of bacon to overcome the caramel taste. Wanting the list? Here you go:

  • Graham Cracker
  • Marshmallow
  • Bacon (bits or sliced)
  • Chocolate w/caramel

A fun change-up in the recipe is to use chocolate graham crackers instead of the normal kind. You could also use peanut butter cups instead of chocolate and peanut butter, but my way lets you determine the amounts of the ingredients to fit your taste.

  • Graham Cracker (chocolate or regular)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Hershey’s Chocolate Bar
  • Marshmallow

S’mores Bowl

Sometimes a stick just can’t make your life gooey enough, but when you put a bunch (technical term) of ingredients into a bowl made of foil, you’ll relish in its goodness. One of my favorite ways to cook over a fire is to cook IN the fire using aluminum foil. You’ll need:

  • Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
  • Golden Grahams Cereal
  • Mini-marshmallows
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Peanut Butter Chips (you can use any kind of chips you like)

Once you make your bowl, be sure to seal the packet by folding it over itself. Place the packet in the coals of a fire and cook on both sides for roughly 3 minutes each. You’ll need a spoon to eat this incredible delicacy.

No matter what you like, I encourage you to experiment with the variety of possibilities that exist. Campfires don’t have to be the normal ho-mum. Make it fun.
