A delicious dessert after a long day of exploring the campground is a welcome sight. It’s sweet, satisfying, and indulgent. Even though typical camping fare is usually very simple and limited in ingredients, it doesn’t need to be. You can have your four-layer cake and eat it too with a little advanced preparation.

Here are some decadent desserts for your upgraded camping experience:

Rachael Ray’s Chocolate Banana Melt.

Essentially a sugary sandwich filled with melty Nutella and ripe bananas, this delicious desert is super easy to make in your trusty campfire cast-iron. It requires just a few ingredients such as sandwich bread, butter, brown sugar, hazelnut spread, and bananas.

Canned Biscuit Donuts.

Who would have ever guessed that canned biscuits could taste so decadent? Apparently, celebrity chef Paula Deen did with her out-of-this-world recipe calling for a can of biscuits, oil, and icing ingredients such as confectioners’ sugar, milk, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and sprinkles. The kids are going to love this fun take on one of their favorite breakfast-style desserts!

Fresh Fruit Bowls.

Slice up apples, oranges, and bananas. Toss in some grapes, cherries, and call it a day. The beauty about this dessert is that it’s fresh, nutritious, and can be customized for each member of your camping circle. It’s great for children, too, because it’s just sweet enough to be enjoyable without loading them up on carbs.

Prepping ingredients in advance helps to ensure that you have everything you need to get past your cravings. It’s a wonderful way to end the perfect day and give the kids a reward for being so good. The best thing about the recipes listed above is that they’re easy and inexpensive to make.

Sweet Success Awaits You Back at Camp

Enjoy every delicious mouthful of the desserts listed above. You don’t need to eat S’mores exclusively when you camp. Instead, you can pick and choose which recipes sound the most appealing, gather the ingredients in advance, and enjoy a little after- dinner treat before falling asleep underneath the moon.
