This summer we’re going to change it up a little! We are tired of the cliché camping dessert being the same ole S’more. RV Lifestyle wants to bring you a fresh new take on S’mores, along with some great ideas for alternative campfire desserts!

The first recipe for S’mores was found in a Girl Scouts book, published in 1927, entitled Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. To this day, S’mores remain a delicious camping favourite, roasted marshmallow between chocolate and graham crackers are just plain delicious. Since 1927, there have been many variations on S’mores, along with varying sticks, grills and campfire irons to make them easier to roast. We want to bring some new recipes and ideas to the table!

We have compiled a list of six new and simple recipes to try next time you’re around the campfire!

6Caramel Apple S’mores

  • One Granny Smith apple, sliced horizontally
  • Roasted marshmallows
  • Caramel sauce

Use sliced Granny Smith apples instead of graham crackers to sandwich a roasted marshmallow with a drizzle of caramel sauce between two apple slices.

5Roasted Pineapple

  • Pineapple sliced lengthwise
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon

Skewer a slice of pineapple onto your roasting stick. Lightly sprinkle cinnamon onto the pineapple and brush with a bit of brown sugar. Roast over the campfire for about eight minutes, or until the pineapple turns golden. Let pineapple cool and enjoy!
