Food just tastes better in the woods. It just does.
I used to love camping.
OK, I hated the actual camping part, but loved to be with my family when they enjoyed camping. Kids always LOVE camping. Camping is fun for everyone but the Mom. The Mom has to do all the work she would normally do, but in the dirt. With no electricity. And no running water. Sheeeeeesh. What’s fun about that?
But the kids, that’s a different story.
Dirt + Fire + Running wild + Water to splash in + Sleeping outside = Kid Heaven.
These days, I do more campfire cooking in my backyard portable metal firepit than I do actual campfire cooking in an actual campground. I highly recommend it.
So, every summer, we have the best of both worlds: campfire in a small portable campfire. And then sleeping in our own comfy beds at night. Plus hot showers and no bug bites. Definite improvement.
Our family developed some really delicious campfire desserts over the years, and I wanted to share some of them with you. So here, my friends , are our top three fave campfire desserts of all time.
