Here we are in our third article about Camping Desserts. In this we’ll go over two more delicious desserts that great to take to the campsite. And don’t forget our four rules about what a camping dessert should be : 1. Delicious because why have dessert if it isn’t going to taste great, 2. Easy to put together because we don’t want to spend three hours making it, 3. Doesn’t require a lot of gear, we’re camping, we don’t want to bring a bunch of specific stuff and 4. The recipe needs to be flexible, so we can make it our own.
This is a fun, easy, and delicious recipe. Because they’re prepared individually, each person can have their own, exactly how they like it.
Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chips
Whatever else you may want
The idea is pretty simple. Take a tortilla and fill it up with whatever you want. Cramming it with everything will probably make it break and the flavors will overwhelm you. Try to stick to two or three flavors for each one. Once you have your tortilla filled, roll it up and cover it in tin foil. Place it over some hot coals or over a light flame and cook until everything is gooey and nice, about ten minutes. You may want to grease the tin foil, just to make sure the melted chocolate and marshmallow won’t stick.
Tin Foil Bread Pudding
This is a versatile and delicious dessert. This is something I actually make from home a lot. It’s great on those cold nights or even cold mornings.
Bread, cubed style (the dryer the better, we want our bread thristy)
Egg or Egg substitute (because camping with eggs CAN be hard)
Sugar (honey can be used, too)
Left over Coffee
Now, I did not put exact measurements for the ingredients because it really depends on how large (or small) you make the tin foil buckets. Each serving, which should be the size of a large bowl, should take 2 cups of cubed bread, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of sugar or honey, and 2 eggs (or the equivalent of egg substitute), 2 Tablespoons of Left over coffee, and as many as berries and bananas as you want.
The reason this recipe is so awesome is because of how flexible it is. As long as you have eggs and milk and cubed bread you can make a decent bread pudding. Take your eggs and milk and put in either a bottle or in a bowl and mix it up good. It’s important the eggs and milk are completely mixed because it’s their fat that makes the custard for the pudding. Next add the bread and let that soak, at least an hour, more if you can. You could make this part right before you leave for the campsite and the bread will have a chance to drink up all the milky goodness by the time you’re at the campsite. Then place that in your tinfoil boat. Make sure you double wrap that because one leak will ruin your Bread Pudding. Add the berries and bananas (or anything you want) and seal it up and give it a shake. Bake for about 30 minutes over a medium fire.
These two recipes are a great way to add a little spice to your campsite without having to drag along a ton of supplies or gear. Each of them can be individual recipes, so each person can get their own, or you can make a heap of them and everyone can have their fill. No matter how you serve it, it will be delicious and a true treat at the campsite.
