When I’m camping I don’t feel like my supper is complete without a delicious campfire dessert. It’s like the cherry on top, and I’m sad if I don’t have something sweet to eat. And of course, my kids agree!

What desserts can you cook over a fire?

The first dessert most folks think of when they think of cooking over a campfire is s’mores. But there are so many other delicious campfire desserts. A few ideas:

  • brownie oranges
  • s’mores
  • dessert nachos
  • cobblers and crisps
  • monkey bread
  • cakes and cookies

How do you bake while camping?

Baking while camping may feel intimidating to the inexperienced camper, but it is very possible and with a little practice, you can be baking everything from cobblers to apple crisps over an open fire.

But perhaps the easiest way to get started baking over a campfire is to bake your favorite dessert inside an orange peel.

  1. Slice the top off of an orange and scoop out the fruit.
  2. Pour in muffin batter, cupcake batter, or even brownie batter.
  3. Replace the top of the orange.
  4. Wrap the whole thing in some heavy-duty tin foil and place it on top of hot coals for about 25 to 30 minutes to let it bake.
  5. Check for doneness with a toothpick and enjoy!
