The title says adults, but this can be for any age group, my kids love these… but then again my kids are “weird” and eat lots of things other kids won’t. When put together these just turn out really classy and work well for an adult party or social gathering. The reason I plant a garden each year, is to harvest the tomatoes everyday…. so this recipe is one of my favorite snacks :). I also love to buy the FRESH mozzarella cheese balls from the specialty cheese section they make this recipe even BETTER! If you are in a rush this recipe can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator for a few hours before you are ready to serve them.

Ingredients
Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Basil Leaves
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper
Toothpicks

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
