15 Easy Campfire Snacks & Treats 

No matter where you plan to camp, one of the most beloved traditions is enjoying a snack by the nightly fire. Or heck, even enjoying a snack by your backyard fire pit!

There is something gratifying about sharing a fun treat with people you love, no matter where your campfire is. 

The following are 15 of the easiest (and tastiest!) campfire snacks and treats to take on your next camping trip. A few of them are pulled from our sister website,, which you should definitely check out.

1. Loaded Campfire Nachos

Bring Happy Hour to your campsite with these loaded campfire nachos! Whether you’re a vegetarian or meat lover, this campfire nacho recipe will hit the spot. It tastes great with or without meat!

It all comes down to layering delicious ingredients to ensure every chip is loaded with toppings. Simply alternate chips and toppings until your pan is full, cover, and cook over the campfire.

Once the cheese is melted, remove it from the fire and enjoy straight from the pan! Eat it as is or top it off with dollops of sour cream, salsa, and guacamole. Go to the full recipe…

2. Campfire Cinnamon Roll-Ups

Easy Campfire Snacks cinnamon rollups
Cook it over the fire.

If you love cinnamon rolls, then you will love these roll-ups! You need a package of crescent rolls, ¼ cup sugar, and a tablespoon of cinnamon. 

You combine the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl to make these delicious treats. Separate the crescent rolls, wrapping each one around a skewer or Wolf-em Roasting Stick.

Roll it in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and cook over a campfire for about 5 minutes. 

You can also make an optional glaze for your treat. Mix ¼ cup powdered sugar with about two tablespoons of water. If it is too dry, add another tablespoon of water. 

3. Easy Campfire Tarts

Cook the dough to make the shell over the fire.

While this recipe only calls for three simple ingredients, you’ll need some way to cook the tart shell. You can fashion a metal shot glass into a skewer to give you the right shape.

But if you are not a typical DIYer, you can purchase some Wolf’em Roasting Sticks with attachments to keep in your RV.

All you need to make these tarts is refrigerated non-buttery biscuits (like Pillsbury), canned pie filling, and whipped cream. 

Simply wrap the biscuit around the end of the shot glass (or pastry attachment). Toast it over the campfire until it is browned. Then fill it with the pie filling and top with whipped cream!

Camping Food Recipes has a Patriotic Biscuit Cup that's perfect for Memorial Day or 4th of July.

4. Banana Boats

grilled bananas easy campfire snacks
Some even grill it without the peal!

Banana boats are another versatile campfire treat. You start by splitting open a banana down the middle, lengthwise. Be sure to keep the peel intact

Score the banana with a knife. Then fill the opening with goodies, close the banana up, and wrap it in foil.

Place the wrapped banana in the embers to cook. You can also place them on a grate over the flames. 

While there are endless options to add to your banana boat, a surefire combination is something melty and sweet (like chocolate) and something crunchy (like nuts). 

Ideas to add to your banana boat include chocolate, caramel, pralines, white chocolate, coconut shreds, honey, candied ginger, sliced strawberries, or granola

5. Kiss Pies

This is another variation on campfire pie. This might be a great alternative if you do not have what you need to make the easy tarts. 

All you need is pie dough, chocolate kisses, one egg, and some sugar. (Frozen pie dough is fine.)

To make them, unroll the thawed pie dough. Place chocolate kisses on the dough. Cut a 2.5-3” circle around each kiss. 

Push up each side of the dough to the center of the kiss. Pinch the sides together. 

Then brush each pie with a bit of egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake over a campfire until golden brown. 

6. Foil Pack Fries

easy campfire snacks
Like this but with FRIES!

Foil pack fries are so easy and can be individualized for each person!

Take a piece of foil, about 1’ by 1’ in size. Fold up the sides to make it into a bowl shape. 

Add frozen fries to the foil pouch. Then top it with whatever you want (see below for suggestions).

Fold the foil to close the pouch and cook over the fire until the fries are heated through. 

The cool thing about this snack is that you can have many different topping choices, such as: 

  • Cheese (or camping mac & cheese)
  • Bacon
  • Campfire chili or baked beans
  • Gravy
  • Veggies (i.e., green onion, bell peppers, onion, garlic)
  • Ranch dressing
  • Pulled pork, chicken, steak (cooked)

Not to put water on the campfire, but it behooves me to remind ourselves of  The Importance of Staying Healthy While RVing. Of course, we should all enjoy these campfire snacks and treats in moderation. 

Ok, now that the health disclosure is done, let’s get back to sweet goodness!

7. Bacon on a Stick

easy campfire snacks

Who doesn’t love bacon? This is the perfect campfire snack for those who love a salty snack. You can even do it for breakfast! 

Simply place the bacon on a skewer, turning it back and forth so it looks like a ribbon. 

Then roast it over the open flame until it is cooked! 

If you want to go one step further, consider adding this to a s’more to kick it up a notch. Or as a topping for your banana boat.

8. Apple Pie in a Cup

If fall camping is right up your alley, then this treat probably will be too! It is like the fall season in an easy disposal cup. 

You need small plastic cups, graham crackers, diced apple fruit cups, and whipped cream. 

Take a small plastic cup and fill it ⅓ of the way with crushed graham crackers. Then top it with the diced apples from the fruit cup. 

Add whipped cream, and voila! Apple pie in a cup! 

9. Walking Tacos

Do you want to celebrate Taco Tuesday with a simple, no-hassle recipe? 

All you need to buy is individualized bags of Doritos and the taco toppings that you want. I like taco meat, shredded cheese, chopped tomato, shredded lettuce, and sour cream. 

Open the bag of Doritos, then top it with whatever combination of toppings you want! Then eat the “tacos” right out of the bag. 

Talk about a fun variation on taco night! Or, you can opt for an easy taco soup recipe instead.

10. Road Trip Snack Boxes

While this is not a treat you warm over the campfire, we couldn’t help adding it to the list. It makes for a fun, creative road trip snack that is excellent for adults and kids alike!

Take a plastic box that is typically used to house crafts or tackle. Whatever you can find has several separate (food-safe) compartments. Then, fill each compartment with different finger foods. 

The best part is mixing and matching your favorites to make it enjoyable. But you should also add some things you normally don’t eat to mix it up even more. 

Some ideas of what to include are:

  • Grapes
  • Small crackers (like small-sized Ritz sandwich crackers or goldfish)
  • Carrots
  • Cheese cubes
  • Berries
  • Small cubed lunch meat
  • Candy
  • Nuts
  • Chocolate

You can enjoy this “snacklebox” on the road, while hiking, or around the campfire.

11. Pie Iron Grilled Cheese with Caramelized Apples

Sweet & Savory! Who says you can’t have cafe-worthy food while you camp? We sure don’t, and this grilled cheese with caramelized apples is proof!

You can easily make this sweet and savory sandwich in a pie iron over the campfire or grill. Our sister site,, tells you how in this easy recipe.

All you need is a few ingredients and a pie iron, also known as a grilled sandwich maker. A pie iron is so versatile, you can make pizza, eggs & potatoes, etc over the campfire. And yes, sandwiches and pie, too.

12. Pie Iron Grilled Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwich

grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich

Speaking of pie irons, here's another one of our favorites. A grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich is the perfect comfort food wherever you camp.

It’s a sweet way to start your day or a protein-packed lunch to refuel for your next adventure. It's simplicity at its finest!

You can grill this recipe in a skillet like a traditional grilled cheese, but we love using our pie iron to make a perfectly toasted sandwich. Go to the full recipe and learn our secret for toasted perfection!

13. S'mores Dip

If you want to forego the roasting sticks and eat s'mores more easily, go for the dip! This s'mores dip recipe allows you to easily add different ingredients and use different dippers.

Sure, graham crackers are a go-to, but you can also try various fruit, cookies, and pretzels. Yummm!

Graham cracker alternatives for s’mores dip:

  • Strawberries
  • Apple Slices
  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Peanut Butter Cookies
  • Pretzels

You can also add different ingredients to the dip, like peanut butter or berries. Then the whole family can dig in while sitting around the campfire. Go to full recipe…

14. Camping Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Tired of s’mores? Bust out your cast iron skillet and make this giant, ooey, gooey chocolate chip cookie for all to share.

Similar to a BJ’s pizookie, you can top this cookie with a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, or any topping you desire. Or, eat it as-is (it’s certainly sweet enough on its own).

Make the dough in advance, then bake this ooey-gooey chocolate chip skillet cookie in your RV oven or on the campfire or grill. Go to the full recipe…

15. S’Mores Variations

all American s'mores

We think our last suggestion should just be a twist on traditional s’mores. They are a camping staple, after all. If you love s’mores but feel a little bored with them, then the simplest solution is just to mix things up.

You can try different cookie and cracker combinations or fillings. 

One popular option is to replace the chocolate in the s’more with a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Or, add Andes mints for a holiday twist on the old favorite!

Or, instead of making it with graham cracker outer walls, try Oreos instead. Or, as Deborah suggested in the comments, roast your s'mores inside a waffle ice cream cone wrapped in foil at the edge of your campfire.

Want something fancier (and a tad healthier)? Add fresh raspberries, bananas, or strawberries inside a traditional s’more. 

Get creative with your own ideas by incorporating some of your favorite treats that you would not otherwise try. You can even make them festive with sprinkles, like these All American Red White & Blue S'mores.

You can do so much with a campfire pie iron! We take pizza dough and make delicious toasted pizzas. Crescent rolls for pies and small tortillas for Tex Mex. I have two awesome cookbooks for “Pudgie Pies”!

We love using waffle ice cream cones for s’mores. Just fill with ingredients, wrap in non-stick foil and place at the edge of the fire. Rotate once then after 5 min or so remove and enjoy! A great less mess treat!
