Everyone loves to sit around a campfire and tell stories and snack. So here are a few ideas for some easy snacks to make as you’re sitting around the campfire. Be sure to add your own ideas to these recipes to make them your own.

Campfire Cinnamon Roll-ups
1 package crescent rolls
1/4 cup sugar
1Tbsp cinnamon
Wooden Skewers

1. Combine cinnamon and sugar in small bowl
2. Separate crescent rolls and wrap them around the skewer
3. Roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture
4. Cook over campfire for 5 minutes, rotating frequently
5. Optional - Mix 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 2-3 Tbsp water together to make a glaze and drizzle over cooked roll-up

Banana Boats
Split a banana down the middle, fill with marshmallows and chocolate chips, wrap in tin foil, then place over a fire.

Sweet Breadsticks
Cut strips of refrigerated breadstick dough in half crosswise; thread a piece lengthwise onto each skewer. Toast over a flame until golden. Brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and cinnamon.

One pineapple cut into spears
½ cup Brown Sugar
½ cup Butter, melted
1 t Cinnamon

Lay the pineapple spears on a pan.
Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.
Whisk together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread on top of the pineapple.
Grill for about 7-10 minutes or until it is starting to turn golden brown. **I always like to brush the excess sauce from the pan back on top of the pineapple before serving.

Campfire Banana Boat Chocolate Caramel S'mores
Serves 4
4 ripe bananas
12 marshmallows (3 to 4 per banana), or a handful of mini marshmallows
12 squares dark chocolate (3 to 4 squares per banana)
1/4 cup caramel chips
8 graham crackers (2 per banana), crumbled

Cut a slit in each banana, and open the skin up slightly. Scoop out a few small chunks of banana (and eat!).
Stuff 3 to 4 marshmallows in the scooped-out sections of the banana, then tuck a square of chocolate beside each marshmallow. Sprinkle a few caramel chips over top.
Close the skin of the banana as much as you can, and place the bananas directly on a campfire grill. Alternatively, wrap the bananas tightly in foil and place directly on coals. The banana skins will blacken as the bananas cook. Grill until the chocolate and caramel melt, and the marshmallows begin to look squidgy, 5 to 7 minutes.
Using metal tongs, carefully transfer bananas on plates. The bananas might release some water, if they do, use a paper towel to wipe off.
Sprinkle the crushed graham crackers over top, and serve with a spoon for scooping.
Recipe Notes
Bananas cooked directly over the grill will have a slightly Smokey flavor. When wrapped in foil, they have less Smokey flavor and will take a few more minutes to cook.
