You already know how fun it is to roast marshmallows or hot dogs on a stick over the fire. So why not take it to the next level? Check out these creative eats that you’ll love making over your next campfire!

fruit kebobs

Fruit Kabobs

Looking for a healthy snack that kids and adults alike will actually want to eat? Cut up fruit can be basic and boring, so amp up the flavor and fun factors by roasting it a fire.

Simply stack a stick with slices of your favorite fruits and slowly turn just until parts of the fruit become caramelized. Bananas, pineapples and peaches are particularly scrumptious for this recipe.

Make it into a light and easy breakfast by adding the fire-roasted fruit to your favorite vanilla yogurt.

Prosciutto and mozzarella kebobs

Prosciutto and Mozzarella

Get a little gourmet with this recipe that’s great as either a snack or part of a light dinner when served with a salad.

You’ll need to buy some fresh mozzarella (the kind that comes in containers with liquid). Look for ciliegine, or mozzarella that’s already formed into small, bite-sized balls. Then when you’re ready to cook, simple wrap a piece of prosciutto around a ball of mozzarella and thread onto a stick. Add 1-2 cherry tomatoes, then repeat until the stick is about halfway covered. Roast over the fire while turning slowly until the tomatoes and prosciutto get a bit of color on them.

Cinnamon buns on a stick

Cinnamon Buns               

Yup! You can make this sweet breakfast treat on a stick using refrigerated cinnamon buns in a tube from the store.

Separate buns and stretch each until they’re long and skinny. Then, without overlapping, wrap each around a stick. Cook over hot coals (not flames) so that the inside cooks through without burning the outside. Serve the icing on the side as a dip and enjoy!
