Campfire Banana Splits – Since we spend most of the summer camping, we’re always on the lookout for great camping recipes. We’ve had an amazing summer so far and decided it was time to try a new campfire treat, the campfire roasted banana split. This is a super easy and delicious snack to add to your camping food repertoire. Our daughter loved being able to build her own banana split treat and it’s virtually foolproof.

Just grab some bananas, and some yummy toppings, wrap in foil, roast in the fire and voila…hot, melty, gooey goodness. Kids and adults alike will love these fantastic campfire treats.

Bailey’s Dipped Toasted Marshmallows

| Cooking, Outdoors

The best toasted marshmallows ever!

The best toasted marshmallows ever!

Bailey’s Dipped Toasted Marshmallows – How about a little something for the adults for a change.  A couple of weeks ago we started our annual summer long camping.  We keep our trailer at the beach for the summer – only about a 15 minute drive from our house. We’re there for most of the summer, until school starts back up. Most nights, as the tip of Mt. Baker turns from white to peachy-pink,  we settle in with a toasty little campfire to keep us warm.  A few years back we discovered Bailey’s marshmallows – all I can say is be prepared, once you’ve had toasted marshmallows with Bailey’s you’ll be ruined for all other marshmallows from that point forward.

Making this is about as simple as it gets. Toast your marshmallow over hot coals, then dip the warm marshmallow into a cup of Bailey’s.  It can be a bit gooey and drippy so be prepared to bust out the wet-wipes.

Be warned… this is highly addictive!
