Check out these camping snacks before heading out on your next trail trip if you plan on camping in the great outdoors this summer.
The following list of delicious, easy-to-make, and campfire-friendly recipes covers everything from homemade apple chips to our new favorite salsa for tortilla chips to campfire queso.
Best Ever S’mores
This simple recipe combines three ingredients to create a tasty dish that is much more than the sum of the parts.
It is hard to count the number of ways we have taken these flavors and run with them – from s’mores nachos to s’mores grilled cheese.
Sometimes, however, we crave the original. There is nothing quite as satisfying as this simple dessert, whether you stick to the classic three ingredients or experiment with fun toppings like caramel or fruit slices.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
The pumpkin is a pretty great fruit. They can be roasted, carved, or served savory or sweet. But one of their best features is their seeds.
They are easily prepared and make a tasty snack. When roasted with salt and butter, the variations are virtually endless.
A little ranch seasoning, taco seasoning, or cinnamon sugar adds a nice pop of flavor.
A Mexican invention and Southwest favorite, Frito Pies (not pie), are the ultimate comfort food.
A freshly opened bag of Fritos smothered in spicy beef chili, cheddar cheese, and some bright, crunchy onions and jalapenos.
Perfect Paleo Granola
Granola is usually made with oats, nuts, seeds, sweeteners, and fat (such as oil).
The granola omits the oats in favor of walnuts, seeds, and nearly 2 cups of nuts. To achieve that caramelized cluster, we use honey as the sweetener.
Classic Rice Krispies Treats
Rice Krispies treats are even better when the butter is browned before the marshmallows are added. They become even more irresistible.
The nutty, deep, vanilla-like taste of brown butter will enhance your treats. It also looks so beautiful with brown splotches.
It’s easy to make your apple chips, even without a fancy dehydrator. You only need your trusty air-fryer and some crunchy apples, like Honey Crisp, Granny Smith, or Pink Lady.
