Dessert

Are you looking for a thrifty dessert idea?  This is a recipe I have been making for years and seems to always be a hit, so I thought I would share it with you.  Plus most the items I already have in my “stockpile” which is an added bonus!

You will need:

  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 4-6 Hershey’s Full sized chocolate bars broken into bits
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream  or half and half (add more to thin if you would like)
  • Crock Pot
  • Fondue sticks

Treats to dip into it:

  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Bananas
  • Pound cake or Angel Food Cake
  • Brownie bites
  • Rice Krispie treats
  • Oranges
  • Cookies
  • pretzels


In a Crock pot add Marshmallows, Chocolate bits and Cream

Put the lid on, and turn on high

In about 20-30 mins it will start to melt, give it a stir

Stir again  in 10 minutes

Stir every 10 minutes, till it is smooth and creamy.  Depending on how hot your crock pot is and how even it heats it will take 40 minutes to an hour.  Once it is mixed well, TURN DOWN to keep warm setting.  Eat right away or it  will keep for several hours so you can make it ahead of time if you like!

If you do not have a crock pot the same recipe can be made on a stove top over low heat, stirring continually as to not scald the cream.

Camping Recipe ~ Cinnamon Rolls On A Stick

This camping tip is an “oldie but a goodie”. We have made these since I was little but they always turn out great and are a awesome treat while  camping in the wilderness. All you need is a clean stick, and a can  of cinnamon rolls. I normally have the kids go on a nature hike and look for good cooking stick on the path. We then use a knife to cut the bark off and make a clean surface to cook the  dough on. If you do not have a stick you can just use a roasting stick. Open up your can of cinnamon rolls and start to unwrap it on your stick. Make sure it is  wrapped on there good so it does not fall off while cooking. I like to use the canned biscuits or rolls for this, because you can use toss then in your cooler for easy transport until you are ready to use them.

To cook, place over an open fire, twist or slowly spin your stick to help it cook evenly.  It is best to cook over coals instead of an open flame.  The flame will just burn your bread so it is best to avoid them. It took me about 8 minutes to cook each roll. But cooking times will vary on the thickness of your dough and the heat of your fire. Top with the icing that comes in the can, and enjoy!camping menu recipe ideas, cinnamon rolls on a stick, pretty amazing, camping hacks, dessert ideas for outdoor cooking
