Gathering around the campfire with friends is truly a special experience. And what makes it even more exciting? The mouthwatering selection of campfire treats just waiting to be eaten together! From classic favourites like toasted marshmallows to your very own saucy fries, we’ve got a delicious lineup of campfire snacks that are guaranteed to make your outdoor adventure unforgettable, leaving your kids asking for s’more!

Sweet campfire snacks


Let’s start with a timeless classic: s’mores! There’s something magical about roasting marshmallows over an open fire and sandwiching them between biscuits and chocolate. The gooey, melt-in-your-mouth goodness is a must-have for any camping trip. Pro tip: try using flavoured marshmallows or swapping out the chocolate for peanut butter spread for a nutty twist!

Campfire cones

For a mess-free campfire treat that’s perfect for little hands, campfire cones are perfect. Simply fill waffle cones with marshmallows, chocolate chips, chopped fruit, nuts and any other sweet treats you desire, then wrap them in tin foil and heat them over the fire until everything is gooey and delicious. The best part? No sticky fingers!

Chocolate bananas

Looking for a healthier option that still satisfies your sweet tooth? Chocolate bananas are the way to go! Kids can slit open a banana lengthwise and stuff it with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and any other toppings of their choice. Once wrapped in foil, the bananas are placed near the fire to cook until the chocolate is melted and the bananas are soft and gooey.

Grilled fruit skewers

Grilled fruit skewers are a healthy and tasty option for campfire treats. Kids can assemble skewers with chunks of their favourite fruits such as strawberries, pineapple, mango, and kiwi. These skewers are then grilled over the fire until the fruits caramelise and develop a delicious smoky flavour.

Savoury campfire snacks

Jacket potatoes

For a hearty and satisfying meal that’s easy to prepare over the campfire, look no further than jacket potatoes. Using a fork, pierce the skin of the potatoes before wrapping them in tin foil and cook them directly in the base of the fire until they’re tender and delicious. Then, kids can get creative with their favourite toppings like cheese, sour cream, beans and bacon.

Hot dogs

No camping trip would be complete without hot dogs! Whether you prefer them roasted on a stick or cooked on a grill grate over the fire, hot dogs are a quick and easy meal that children of all ages will enjoy. With a build-your-own hot dog bar, kids can choose from a variety of toppings like ketchup, mustard, relish, and onions.

Foil-packed loaded fries

Loaded fries are one of the best campfire snacks that’s easy to make and fun to customise. Start by cooking French fries in a cast iron skillet over the campfire until they’re golden and crispy. Then, sprinkle them with shredded cheese, bacon, and green onions, before letting it all melt over the fries. Pro tip: add a dollop of sour cream or guacamole for a creamy and tangy finish.

Campfire quesadillas

Campfire quesadillas are a simple and satisfying savoury treat that kids can easily make over the fire. They can fill flour tortillas with shredded cheese, cooked chicken or beef, beans, and vegetables. The filled tortillas are then wrapped in tin foil and heated over the fire until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are crispy. These can also be served with salsa, guacamole, or sour cream for dipping.
