Waffle cone S’mores
Don’t want to deal with the gooey mess of regular s’mores? These waffle cone s’mores are a perfect (and fun!) alternative.
First, grab a waffle cone and fill it with your favorite toppings. You can go the classic route and fill it with just chocolate and marshmallows, or get creative and add other toppings like peanut butter cups, bananas, strawberries, nuts, and brown sugar.
Then wrap the cones in foil and toss into the fire pit coals or grill for 5 to 7 minutes.
Once everything has melted inside, carefully remove the foil-covered cones from the coals, wait for them to cool and enjoy!
cinnamon roll skewers
Here’s a fun twist on cinnamon rolls, cinnamon roll skewers!
First, mix a tablespoon of cinnamon and ¼ cup of sugar in a bowl.
Then open a package of crescent rolls and wrap them around a skewer. Roll the skewers in the cinnamon sugar mixture and hold over the heat for about 5 minutes, turning regularly.
For extra sweetness, mix ¼ cup of powdered sugar with 3 tablespoons of water to drizzle over the skewers.
Pull-Apart Ham and Cheese Sandwich
Want a delicious fire pit meal that can feed the whole family? Try this pull-apart ham and cheese sandwich!
First, spray a large piece of foil with cooking spray and cut an Italian bread into 12 slices, without cutting all the way through.
Then mix 3 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of mustard and spread them over each slice of the bread. Fill each piece with ham and cheese and wrap the bread in foil.
Then place the bread in the fire coals for 20 to 25 minutes. When the time is up, carefully remove the bread and tear apart the sandwiches for a delicious meal!
