- 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. 🙂

Caramel corn is a favorite of mine. I went through a period of time where I wanted it almost every other night when I was growing up.
Campfire Caramel Corn
- 1/2 c popcorn kernels
- 3 tbsp oil
- 1/2 c margarine or butter
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 7 large marshmallows
Add oil to a dutch oven and pop the popcorn over your campfire. Set aside.
Over the campfire in another pan, melt butter, brown sugar and marshmallows. Stir constantly until bubbling.
Remove from heat and spoon the caramel mixture over your popcorn. Make sure you cover it all and mix well.
