Well, my favorite learned from my scoutmaster over 40 years ago.

Partially split a banana lengthwise - on the inside of the curve - with skin left on. Put some pieces of chocolate into the slit. Wrap in foil and set in coals with slit side up. Eat with a spoon. Butter, brown sugar optional or alternates.

Open Face Pie

One box pie crust mix- mix according to package directions and press into bottom and sides of two jello molds.

1 1/2 c dried blueberries - soak in a small amount of hot water until they start to plump up a bit, then add 1/4 C sugar and 2 Tbs cornstarch

Pour the berry mixture into the pie crust. Bake in jello mold ovens over low heat until it's bubbly and starting to brown on the edges.

LET IT COOL! Otherwise, you will burn the s*** out of your mouth (but it will still taste good)

Serves 6-8

found this in Backpacker magazine. haven't tried it, but sounds delish

1 tube of store bought crescent rolls
1 can apple pie filling
1 package crushed walnuts or almonds
aluminum foil

AT HOME
empty apple pie filling into zip top bag and double bag it

IN CAMP
Crescent dough typically comes packaged as six attached triangles. Separate triangles two at a time so you have three crescents total. Place filling and nuts onto the crescents, and roll them up. For each, create foil pouches that cover the dough; place them in coals near the fires edge (not directly in flames). Flip after three minutes, bake for about three more minutes (until golden), then unwrap and enjoy. Serves 3.

Blueberry Cobbler in a Jello Mold Oven (adapted/stolen from FreeLeo)

Here's what FreeLeo said: "We had a good JMO cobbler. I pre-measured the ingredients into Ziplocs. For the filling 4-6 Tbs reg or brown sugar, 3/4tsp cinnamon, 1 Tbs cornstarch, add to fruit with a small amt of water ,mix & put in jello mold. Topping: 1/2 C flour, 1/2 C light brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 C chopped pecans. Add 1/4 cup butter or marg. to the bag when preparing and mash around till mixed then cut a small hole in bag and squish all over the top of the fruit. Not sure how long it cooked, we kept checking till it seemed like the topping was crusty and fruit was bubbling. Some of the fruit we used was dried apricots we chopped up and rehydrated for a while, that's why I'm not sure how much water to add to the fruit. You can add nutmeg to either part too, if you like nutmeg."

Here are my changes: I skipped the pecans and nutmeg and used white sugar with the berries but brown sugar on top. Grease your pan and keep the heat low. See the thread on Jello Mold Ovens for tips.

Pudding

1 Box Jello Instant pudding mix (we like vanilla) less than a buck$$$
1 1/2 cup powdered milk
2 Cups water (colder the better)

Mix powdered milk and water until no lumps
Add pudding mix and stir 5 min. Set aside for dessert with a meal

A lot cheaper than the prepackaged dessert puddings and really good...
you could eat it with vanilla wafers.

Packit Gourmet Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust.

Mix the flavors of New York Cheesecake with the spiciness of pumpkin and you have a flavorful, cool weather treat that is a cinch to make. This was our favorite dessert on a 9 day trip.

Takes 5 minutes. Just add water and top with gingersnap crumbles.

Rhubarb Upsidedown cake


Jello mold oven recipe


cover the bottom of the JMO with about 1.5" of diced rhubarb. Pack in some brown sugar and cut some butter pats onto it. Prepare yellow cake mix as directed, but add a can (or 12 oz. of bottled) of cream soda instead of eggs and oil, and pour over the rhubarb. Cook in the JMO unitl it looks done. Wait 5 minutes and turn it out. Dab tears of joy while it cools a bit. Eat.

Pumpkin Crunch Dump Cake


1 can (15 ounces) solid pack pumpkin
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 box yellow cake mix
2 cups pecans
1 cup butter, melted


First I lined my 10" Dutch Oven with heavy duty aluminum foil.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon & salt. Pour mixture into Dutch Oven.


Sprinkle the cake mix over the top. Do not stir. Add pecans to top of cake mix. Drizzle with melted butter OR you can just 'dot' the top with the butter and it will melt in as it cooks.


Cover Dutch Oven and cook/bake for 50 minutes to an hour.
Charcoals: 10 on the bottom in a ring and 15 on the top.


Would really be great with ice cream or even whipped cream in a can.


If you want to make this at home you can just use a greased 9 x 13 cake pan, bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.


Enjoy!

Anybody not like cookie dough? Open a bag of cookie dough and pour half into a small mixing bowl. Add water, butter, and oil to taste and desired consist when mixed. Divide between 2 to 3 people and eat. Repeat with other half of mix later on in the week.

Snack Pies on the Fire


Simple and ready-made. We don't eat these at home, but camping, they're pretty tasty and quick. We find them in a box, so they pack and travel well.


Single Serve Apple, Cherry or Lemon pie. (like Entenmann's)


Wrap in foil and warm over fire.
