Better-Than-S’mores Campfire Dessert

IMG_7284We’re back from a weekend of camping with family! (Friday’s post was a list of our camping essentials, if you missed it.)

We have a little recipe that’s basically become a tradition for us when we go camping (I say we — but really that just means Caleb makes it & I eat it). These things really should have a name, and maybe they do wherever they originated, but I’m not sure of the origin or the moniker. All I know is that my husband introduced me to these things long ago and now I pretty much “have to” have one anytime we’re cooking over an open fire.

The lack of title really does pose a problem, and you’d think that by now I’d have come up with a witty one, but no, they’re merely Delicious Things and for our purposes, that suffices. (Read, puppy dog eyes + a whispered “delicious things,” and my Mr. Beard will have one in the works.) If you pin this, and come up with a catchy description for them, please, by all means, do tell!

So, here’s the down-low:

  • Spread peanut butter on one half and Nutella on the other half of a tortilla.
  • Top with a row of banana slices and marshmallows.
  • Roll up (no need to close the ends) and wrap in aluminum foil.
  • Toss into the fire or over hot coals for 10-15 minutes (depending on how hot the fire is).
  • Upon retrieving from fire…revel in the warm, gooey taste & texture of what I think is The Very Best Part of Camping.

Now it’s your turn…tell me about your favorite camping dish!

  1. Great post. The desert looks fantastic!

    I’m always looking for treats for our family camping adventures. I think we’ll add this one to our next trip to the campground. If we come up with a clever name, I’ll let you know!

  2. I have a friend who calls these Mexican S’mores (because of the tortilla). I’ve never tried them with the sliced bananas but I will definitely be trying it next campfire:)

    • Trust me, the bananas are what MAKE these. In fact, once we ran out of bananas halfway through the weekend, I wasn’t really into eating another one. Definitely give them a try! 🙂 Also, Mexican s’mores?…Good to know!
