Chocolate Smore


There’s always room for dessert, even at the camping grounds, but some campers feel that the extra effort of preparing an additional meal a daunting task. Fortunately, there’s a lot of easy yet definitely yummy campfire dessert recipes you can try for your next trip outdoors.


You don’t have to be an expert cook to whip up this foolproof dessert. With just four ingredients, you can make this yummy banana pudding recipe in two different versions.

All you need are 20 pieces of vanilla wafers or plain biscuits, two large bananas, a packet of instant banana pudding and enough milk according to the packet instructions and a container where you’ll put the pudding after preparation.

• For the crunchy version of the banana pudding, you just have to follow the instructions stated on the pudding packet and set it aside.
• Then crumble the wafers or biscuits and peel and slice the bananas.
• Assemble the dessert in the large bowl or individual serving jars by evenly dividing the crushed wafers and set them on the bottom of the container.
• Then pile on the prepared pudding mixture with another layer of the crumbled wafer and top it off with the sliced bananas.
• Put the containers in the cooler until serving time.

If you want to have a smoother banana pudding for dessert, layer the crumbled wafers or biscuits and sliced bananas alternatively in a container until they reach the top. Make the banana pudding according to the instructions, then pour it evenly into each jar while the pudding is still runny. This will seep into the wafers or biscuits and the bananas before setting.


Jazz up your usual s’ mores, one of the most popular campfire dessert recipes, by using chocolate chip cookies instead of the usual graham crackers. All you need to do is put two toasted marshmallows in one cookie and place a large Hershey’s hazelnut chocolate Kiss on top. Serve with a cup of coffee or tea.


Who says it’s impossible to enjoy a warm piece of lamington outdoors? All you need is a dependable waffle iron, to make this very easy campfire dessert recipe.

• First, take two slices of chocolate cake and place them in the waffle iron.
• Spread your favourite seedless jam on one of chocolate cake slices, then top it with the other slice.
• Close the iron and cook the dessert over a campfire for approximately six minutes or until the chocolate cake has been heated through and the edges are already crispy.
• Serve warm with shredded coconut on top.


Another smart way to use bananas for dessert during a camping trip is by stuffing them with marshmallows and chocolate. This three-ingredient recipe can be cooked directly on top of the hot coals. You just need to cut through a banana lengthwise but do not slice it all the way through. Insert the chocolate and marshmallows in the banana then wrap it in a piece of foil.

Place it on the hot coals and cook for 5-10 minutes, then remove from heat. Let it cool first before you remove the foil and enjoy.

Making these simple campfire dessert recipes will definitely make your next camping trip even more memorable, well more delicious, at least. You only need to spare a few minutes of your time to make these crowd pleasers outdoors. Let me know if they went down a treat!
