Bon Apetit

Are you tired of making the same plain s'mores every time you go camping? Step up your dessert game with these easy, delicious campfire desserts.

There is nothing better than sitting around the campfire after a day spent in the great outdoors. Add a sweet treat, and a great ghost story for the best night ever.

Grab your trusty cast iron skillet or Dutch oven and try these awesome campfire recipes!

1. Caramel Apples

Caramel Apples

This is probably the easiest recipe on this list. You can prep your apples before your trip, wrap them in foil or plastic wrap, and pack them in your cooler until you're ready to cook them.

The brown sugar and butter melt into a delicious caramel sauce in the apples. If you're not a fan of artificial sweetener, you can substitute another half cup of brown sugar for the Splenda brown sugar blend.

2. Skillet Brownies

Simply Food Love

Who doesn't love an ooey, gooey brownie? This is a chocolate lover's dream - topped with more chocolate. The original recipe calls for using an oven, but you can make this dessert just as easily over your campfire. It works well with a Dutch oven too.

3. Bourbon, Blueberry and Peach Cobbler

It's peach season! Nothing screams "peach!" like a warm, homemade cobbler. Food Network star Guy Fieri takes the classic peach cobbler to the next level by adding bourbon and blueberries. If you want to try this cobbler at home, just place your skillet in an oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

4. Barbecued Apple Crisp

Apples, butter, sugar - you can't go wrong with a fresh apple crisp. If you like to take a grill on your camping trips, this recipe is for you. It's quick, easy, and you can eat it right from the foil pack!

5. Peach-Blackberry Camp Cake

This dessert takes a little more work than its counterparts, but it is worth it! The recipe calls for serving the warm cake upside down with a dollop of yogurt, but it tastes just as yummy without it. Line your Dutch oven with foil before baking to make cleanup easier.

6. Campfire Éclairs


Éclairs at a camp out? Sure! Even if you're roughing it at a primitive site, you can still make a delicious éclair. All you need is an open fire and just three ingredients. I might have to try this with my gas stove at home!

Your camping desserts have just reached an ultimate peak. You'll want to go camping literally just to eat these sweet treats!
