Camping is one of the best things to do with your family. You’re separated from screens, the loud bustling sound of the town, and you get to spend some quality time with your favorite people. But let’s be real. We know you’re also excited to be spending some quality time with that amazing campfire food.

Why would campers travel over 180 miles every year to go camping if they weren’t pumped to eat marshmallows a thousand different ways while taking in the great outdoors? Camping is a time for experiencing new things and being adventurous. So let’s get adventurous and explore some new ways to prepare everyone’s favorite camping treat.

Camp treats for every family

Marshmallows: white, puffy, and the key ingredient to campsite success. No end-of-the-day campfire is quite complete without hoisting these little bits of sugary magic onto the perfect stick and roasting them over the flames until they’re golden brown. But before you pop those clouds of happiness into your mouth, consider first a few ways you could make them even better.

Marshmallow Popcorn

Why would you mix one camping favorite with another? Why wouldn’t you? To create this fun treat to share around the campsite, all you need is a baking dish, popped popcorn, butter, and marshmallows.

Melt butter and marshmallows in a saucepan over your campfire. Once the marshmallows have successfully melted and have been incorporated with the butter, remove the saucepan from the flames. Pour your popped popcorn into the baking dish and proceed to cover the popcorn in the melted marshmallow goodness. Wait 10 minutes to cool and then serve.

Marshmallow Cheesecake S’mores Bars

With this recipe, you’ll need pre-made cheesecake before you sit around the fire to enjoy it. Make a normal s’more like you usually would with a healthy helping of Hershey’s chocolate (don’t lie, you know two bars are better than one). But before you set that golden-brown marshmallow on top of the chocolate, take a small square of a pre-made cheesecake bar and set it onto your graham cracker. Then place it where it belongs: in your mouth.

Campfire food is some of the best you’ll ever have. And not just because you’re surrounded by friends and family! Food that goes hand-in-hand with that is always incredible. But sometimes you need more than a campfire to make some truly amazing food. Fortunately, Jellystone Park Camp Resorts has campsites for every families with different types of needs.
