Enjoy a few Nutella recipes today to celebrate!
Grilled Nutella & Marshmallow Sandwiches
Makes 2 sandwiches
- 4 slices soft white bread
- 2 tablespoons Nutella (or more, or less — depending on your taste!)
- 40 mini marshmallows*
- 2 tablespoons butter, divided
*You can also sub in 2 tablespoons (or more!) of marshmallow fluff.
1. Spread Nutella on two slices of bread, 1 tablespoon on each slice. Spread marshmallows out evenly on the other two slices, 20 on each each slice. Pair them together to make two sandwiches.
2. Heat a small skillet or grill pan over medium-low heat, then melt half a tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Put one sandwich in the skillet and cook until the underside is golden brown, about a minute and a half. Add another half a tablespoon of butter to the skillet, flip the sandwich and cook until both sides are golden brown and the marshmallows are melted, about a minute and a half.
3. Wait a minute before slicing, just so that the hot filling doesn’t burn you.

Here’s a fun, summer treat! Kool-aid ice cubes and sprite. This is a cute camping treat too.
These are so easy to make! Simply mix up your favorite Kool-aid and then freeze into ice cubes. Mix and match colors or keep it simple with the same color. Pour sprite over ice cubes and enjoy.
Tastes like skittles!!
Happy Corn Chip Day? Is there anything better than delicious corn chips? Plain, BBQ, chili cheese … oh yum.
The best use of corn chips ever made be in walking tacos.
- Small bag of Fritos corn chips (or your favorites)
- Taco meat or chili
- Sour cream
Cut open the bag of corn chips along the long side. Spoon in the meat or chili, cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream.
Mix up the ingredients and try pulled pork with honey BBQ corn chips. Or use the chili cheese chips version instead of plain. Or try chicken fajita meat with peppers and onions. Oh the variations are endless!
And if you’ll excuse me, I’m on my way to the store to pick up the ingredients to make these!
- 1 large banana, unpeeled
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Slice an unpeeled banana lengthwise without cutting all the way through the top or bottom of the peel. Gently open it so it’s like a boat, then fill with the brown sugar and cinnamon, pressing them into the flesh without squishing. Wrap the banana tightly in foil.
- Cook in the coals of the campfire, away from any active flames, for about 10 minutes. Serve hot … maybe with vanilla ice cream. :-p

Remember those Campfire Cakes we shared a while back? These are similar and just as yummy!
Campfire Cinnamon (or Orange!) Rolls
- 4 Oranges
- Canister of Cinnamon (or orange!) rolls
Cut each orange in half. Scoop out the flesh and use for fruit salad or just eat them as is. 🙂
Open your can of cinnamon or orange rolls and put a roll in each orange half. Put the finished orange halves on a cookie sheet or something you can use on the campfire. Cover with aluminum foil and put them on the fire.
They will rise as they bake. Keep an eye on them. Once they have puffed and risen over the top of the orange, pull them off to check that they are done.
Add the icing and eat ’em up!

So last week while I was stuck at home (because I couldn’t get out of my driveway that was under eight inches of snow) we made this yummy snow cream. It is a treat I’ve always loved. My mom made it for me every time it snowed when I was growing up.
Easy Snow Cream
- 1/3 cup Granulated sugar
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 pinch Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
- 8 cups of fresh, clean snow (grab this as the last step)
In a large bowl whisk together milk, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Scoop up the clean snow and immediately stir it into the milk mixture until you reach the desired consistency. Top it with sprinkles, or chocolate syrup, or whatever your fancy!
**As a disclaimer, consume snow at your own risk. You may also make this recipe with shaved ice. 🙂

- 8 frozen waffles
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- 1 cup or milk or semisweet chocolate chips
- heavy duty aluminum foil
Place a waffle on a greased sheet of heavy duty foil, about a 12 inch square. Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup of the marshmallows and chocolate chips. Top with second waffle. Fold around the waffle sandwich and seal tight. Repeat three more times!
Grill over medium heat for about 8 – 10 minutes or until chocolate is melted. Turn once about halfway through. Open carefully and allow steam to escape. Try and wait for it to cool before you devour it. 🙂

Apple crisp … perfect for a cool fall night, or morning, over the campfire. Try this during your Halloween stay, and invite me to your site! 🙂
Grilled Apple Crisp
- ½ cup old-fashioned oats
- 6 tbsp flour
- 3 tbsp packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- dash of nutmeg
- 2 tbsp butter, plus more for foil
- 3 apples (whichever type you prefer; we like golden delicious)
- squeeze of lemon juice
Combine oats, flour, sugars, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Keep the bowl in the fridge while you prepare the apples.
Wash apples and pat dry. Core and slice apples, then toss them with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Cut two squares of foil (about a foot each) and lightly butter the center of each piece.
Place the apples onto of one of the foil pieces and then sprinkle with the crumble mixture. Place the top piece of foil (butter side down) on the package and crimp the edges inwards one at a time until the package is well sealed. Wrap the entire package in another layer of foil to help prevent burning on the edges.
Place the foil pack on the grill (heated to a medium heat) for about 20 minutes. Let cool a minute or two before opening, it is very hot.
Serve with vanilla ice cream!
