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.
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.

Peel a thin strip from the inside curve of a banana, carve out a small wedge all along the length. Fill with peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallow. replace small banana wedge and peel. wrap in foil and place over coals to warm and melt. eat carefully b/c it can be very warm. yummmmmm

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.
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.

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.
