Camping Desserts to Enjoy in the Outdoors
Backpacking Desserts and Booze
First thing's first – Is your bugout bag packed? Is your survival gear in order? Do you have your emergency food stored properly?
Okay! Now that you've taken care of the necessities, take a second to do something that's not exactly essential to your survival preparation, but let's just call these your mental bugout bag essentials – sweets and booze.
And we can't (well… don't want to) go without even when camping out. So we've gathered up the most delicious campfire-friendly, easy to prepare, and no mess recipes we promise will be well behaved and well-traveled on your camping trip.
These desserts and drinks will make you a happy camper. You might even have enough to share if you're feeling generous.
Campfire Apple Crisp
Apple cobbler can be difficult, messy, and a pain to transport. You can bring the ingredients along and make these little crisps instead for a delicious and no fuss camping dessert alternative.
They fold up into little bundles you throw on the campfire. So simple!
Dutch Oven Smores
A new take on dutch oven cobbler recipes. The marshmallows in this Dutch oven smores get extra crispy and the chocolate gets extra melty when you let the dutch oven do the work for you.
Ooey Gooey Grilled Chocolate Banana Bundles
This is another easy take-along dessert that you can wrap in foil and throw on the fire. Before you know it you have a gooey dessert, ready with an aluminum foil “plate” that can be easily disposed of.
Fire Roasted Marshmallow Covered Strawberries
Stick a skewer through the strawberry, dip it in some marshmallow fluff, roast over the campfire, consume when cool. Easy and delicious!
Grilled Campfire Cones
No Mess Grilled Blueberry Cobbler
This might be one of the more difficult recipes as far as transportation is concerned, but we promise it is well worth the effort!
Boozy Campfire Marshmallows
Pf course we had to include a white sangria option as well! This one is lighter, brighter, and perfect for summertime camping.
Sunset Rum Punch
Or in some other perfectly beautiful camping scene.
