Any Chocoholics out there? These 5 chocolate camping recipes should do the trick next time you have a sweet craving by the campfire. Enjoy!
- 1 cup Nestle Semi-Sweet chocolate chips
- ⅔ cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon water
- ½ cup granola cereal
Combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and water in a pan. Melt over low heat, stirring constantly to avoid burning. Once the chocolate chips are melted, remove from heat. Pour the mix into an 8-inch square pan, lined with foil. Sprinkle granola over the top and let cool. Let the fudge sit and firm for about an hour and then cut into 1-inch squares.
Dutch Oven Cherry Chocolate Cake
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
- 1 16 oz can of cherry pie filling
- 1 12 oz can of Sprite
Combine cake mix, pie filling, and Sprite in a Dutch oven. Mix until blended. Cover the Dutch oven and set over hot coals, placing a few coals on top of the lid. Let the cake cook for about 15-20 minutes.
So, we tried this recipe last time we were camping. Here is our take:
Our verdict: 1 out of 5 sporks.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Wraps
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- 4 flour tortillas
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- ½ cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on each tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of marshmallows and 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on half of each tortilla. Roll up and wrap each tortilla in foil and seal tightly. Grill over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until heated through. Unwrap and eat.
- 2 large bags semi sweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup milk
- ¼ cup liqueur. Take your pick. I like orange
Melt ingredients over fire in small sauce pan. Stir until melted to avoid burning. Almost anything tastes good dipped in chocolate but here are a few suggestions: dried fruit, popcorn, chocolate bar (!), potato chips, pretzels, fresh fruit, marshmallows, etcetera.
Adult Hot Chocolate
Nothing tops an evening around the fire like a tasty cup of hot chocolate. Especially if it’s warmed with a dash of cayenne pepper and some tequila. That’s my kind of hot chocolate.
- 3 tablespoons hot cocoa mix
- 6 oz water
- 4 oz tequila
- ¼ oz agave nectar
- dash of cayenne powder
- 1 marshmallow
Combine hot cocoa and cayenne with water, and heat until warm. Add the tequila and agave nectar to a mug with the hot cocoa. Top with a marshmallow and a dash of cayenne.
What’s your chocolate of choice when camping?
