If you’re going camping then there isn’t anything better than setting a campfire and cooking your dinner over the ambers.

We have got some great snacks for you to cook the next time you go camping. If you need some recipes to try on your cooker while camping, check out these amazing 27 recipes to use on your next camping trip.

But these are snacks you can cook on a camp fire the next time you are camping.

Popcorn:

Very simple to do:

Add olive oil to mess tin, add popcorn seeds and cover in tin foil. You need to leave a lot of room in their so don’t wrap the tin foil flat with the top of the mess tin – leave quite a bit of room.

Leave for around 10 minutes or until you can hear the popcorn popping.

Take out and add your flavouring. Easiest is to make it sweet.

Add a little bit of melted butter (can use olive oil) onto the popcorn and add sugar.

Now it’s ready to eat.

Grape Fluff

Yeah, I couldn’t think of a better name than Grape Fluff. It might not sound amazing, but it’s so simple.

You need a couple of grapes and a tub of fluff which you can get from all major supermarkets.

Using either hazel or skewers, skewer two grapes near to the top, cover them in fluff (please be warned this stuff is very sticky) and then slowly rotate over a fire until it goes golden brown.

That’s is – now they are ready to eat.

These taste amazing.

S'Mores

Again these are very simple and quick to make and my children’s favourite (might be mine too)

You need a smallish marshmallow – if it’s too big it wont work so cut it in half.

Skewer this again and roast over the fire till it’s very soft.

Take it away from the fire and using two chocolate biscuits (collocate facing the marshmallow) put them on each side of the marshmallow. As you pull the skewer out the marshmallow, the chocolate will melt and you will have a tasty little snack.

What’s your favourite snacks to cover over an open fire when camping.
