Campfire Treats

Earlier this summer my husband discovered a spot in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire to unplug, disconnect, and refresh.  With everything we have going on I was hesitant to book a reservation, but there was only one weekend left with openings for the summer so we did it.  YOU GUYS.  I cannot recommend this enough.  We went to a place called Getaway House. They have locations outside of Boston, New York, and D.C. and it is worth every single penny.

If you’re not familiar with Getaway House (this is not sponsored by the way, I’m just genuinely in love!), you stay in a small trailer/cabin that has a bed next to a giant window that looks out into the woods, a table and chairs, a stove top, sink, mini fridge, shower, and toilet.  There are no mirrors. There is no WiFi.  There is no TV.  It’s just nature with a bed and a bathroom.   Outside there are a couple chairs, a picnic table, and a fire pit.  It’s really everything you need.  Oh, and did I mention you can bring your dogs?!


I honestly cannot say enough about the weekend.  I thought I would miss my phone.  I thought I would get bored.  We brought so much food and so many games and books because we were so worried about having things to do, but just sitting there soaking it all in was good enough for me.  (I did read a ton though.)

I decided to take this opportunity to test out some recipes in a different setting.  I ended up making two delicious desserts that weekend and it turns out, you can do quite a bit with just a campfire!  So if you find yourself camping in this beautiful fall weather, grab the ingredients below on your way out, and enjoy easy and delicious campfire treats!


Campfire Treats


Campfire S'mores Brownie Pies

  • 1 mini graham cracker pie shell
  • 1 spoonful Marshmallow Fluff
  • 1 spoonful prepared brownie batter made from scratch or a box

Campfire Dessert Croissants

  • 1 can croissant dough
  • fillings of choice I used Fluff, strawberries, bananas, and chocolate chips


Campfire S'mores Brownie Pies

  • Put spoonful of Fluff into bottom of pie shell, spoon brownie batter on top, and cook over hot coals until brownie is cooked.
  • Do not cook right over the flame or the pie shell will burn before the brownie is cooked.

Campfire Dessert Croissants

  • Unroll each croissant, spoon the filling onto the widest part of the dough, roll up and pinch the sides to cover any holes, and wrap in foil. Place foil wrapped croissants over the heat until the dought is cooked. Filling will be HOT!

  • Thank you for posting this!!! I’m at a getaway myself and was wondering if I could do smores croissants on the fire!

    • I feel like you can wrap pretty much anything in foil and throw it on the fire! Can’t wait to head back to Getaway to try more campfire recipes! Enjoy your time and let me know how it turns out!
