Think of outdoor cooking as an exciting adventure; now imagine how these **easy and fun camping snacks** can make your trip even more thrilling.

I know, sometimes it’s hard to find a reason to head outside.

 But these treats are sure to bring joy into your home.

If you’re looking for something sweet, salty, and savory that you can prepare right at the campfire, you’ve come to the right place.

From nachos to cookies to pizza, there are so many mouthwatering camping snacks out there, it’s hard to decide!

So give one of these recipes a try.

 I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.


1. Walking Taco Nachos

Let’s talk about nachos.

 I’m a huge fan, but let’s just be real for a second: nachos can get boring really fast.

That’s why it only makes sense to have some tacos on the side.

These are so easy to make and look fantastic with all those crispy tortilla strips.

I recommend using fresh corn, but you could use frozen if you want them quicker.

2. Camping Salad

If you’re looking for a salad that can last throughout the entire weekend, this recipe is perfect!

The key to making this salad healthy is in the dressing.

 It’s got everything you need to make your salads both colorful and nutritious.

It has a lovely blend of cranberries, olives, red onions, and feta cheese.

You can also add some sunflower seeds or dried apricots to make it more filling.

3. Camping Sangria

You can make your own sangria with this recipe, but I’ve found that Ballast Point beer is a must.

The sweet, tropical flavors of the fruit and citrus zest will complement the dryness of the alcohol perfectly.

This drink is perfect for when you’re feeling lazy in the morning or want to indulge in some decadence after dinner.

4. Loaded Breakfast Biscuits

I have to say that these loaded biscuits are the absolute best.

They’re a combination of fluffy and tender biscuits with some extra fixings.

They’re the perfect blend of sweet, savory, and spicy.

You could serve them for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner!

If you really want to impress your family and friends, try serving them in ceramic mugs.

It gives them an additional layer of charm (and also keeps their hands warm).


5. Campfire Caprese Brie

I’m not sure what I like about this recipe more: the creamy brie or the buttery bread.

Either way, it’s a fantastic way to use up leftover bread.

And since there are no preservatives in these rolls, you can even make them ahead of time and enjoy them any time after that.

6. Caramel Apple S’mores

This recipe is a genius way to use fresh apples with caramel, marshmallows, and Cracker Jacks.

It’s the perfect festive dessert that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth without having to break a sweat.

The crisp outer layer will melt at the touch of a fork, giving you a sweet and chewy apple caramel experience in every bite.

7. Grilled S’mores Nachos

If you love s’more, you’ll go nuts for this grilled s’more nachos recipe.

Crispy and chocolatey s’mores are smothered in a brown sugar, butter-based sauce that is then topped with melted chocolate chips.

When the heat of the grill gets to the right temperature, the chocolate will melt and bubble up.

 Then, it drips down onto your chips and creates an addictive finish.

This snack is a must-try at any party!

8. Campfire Cones Board

I’m hesitant to say “cones,” but you know what I mean when I say these things are the best!

They’re fun, easy to make, and super tasty.

 Plus, they take only 10 minutes or less to put together.

So if you want a fun way to add some flavor to your meals this summer, try these little guys.


9. S’Mores Campfire Cones

These s’mores campfire cones are the ultimate dessert for any day of the week.

You will want to make a double batch because these are going to be gone in no time.

All you need is chocolate and marshmallow fluff, and you’ll have yourself a delicious treat that everyone will love.

10. French Toast Sticks

I know you can get these from a bag of frozen bread rolls, but I’m not sure if I like the idea of that unless you bake them on a griddle.

So for this recipe, you’ll want to add some cinnamon and sugar to the batter.

 Then, it just needs a quick and easy wash in hot water before being popped into the oven.

11. Campfire Popcorn

Do you remember the first time you tried Popcorn?

How much fun was it?!

The idea of putting a bowl of popcorn on the fire is just plain genius.

For this recipe, you’ll use foil to help keep the kernels from burning.

 Plus, it makes cleanup so much easier!

Once they’re popped – delicious or not – stick them in a pot and add butter, honey, salt, and garlic powder.

Oh yeah, don’t forget the cheese!

12. Oreo® S’mores

I’m a sucker for s’mores, and I always end up at the campfire with a bowl of chocolatey heaven.

If you love Oreos as much as I do, then this recipe will give you that same fun flavor without all the mess!

Coconut sugar packs an incredible amount of sweetness while giving this dessert that extra touch of crunch.

It also adds a little bit of something sweet to the otherwise savory dish.

13. Campfire Bread

Many people will tell you that bread is the low-carb food of choice, but I have to disagree.

I know, it’s easy to say, “butter and sugar are keto!”

But this bread is so much more than that.

Each bite has a nutty and crispy crust with a satisfyingly chewy interior.

 It’s almost like eating a slice of cake!

Plus, it looks just like your favorite deep-dish pizza!

14. Ranch Chex Mix Snack

If you’re on a ranch-based diet, this snack may have lost its appeal.

All of your favorite ranch and Chex mix flavors are in one delicious treat!

This recipe is perfect for kids’ parties.

 Just be sure to pack plenty of healthy snacks like fruit, veggies, and chips so they don’t go far away from the fun.

15. Cheesy Chili Dip

This cheesy dip is the perfect appetizer or side dish.

 It’s easy to whip up on a weeknight, and it tastes just as good with chips as it does with crackers.

You can make this recipe in under half an hour, so it’s the perfect party food.

Plus, you won’t need a separate kitchen appliance for this!

Just use a big pot and spoon.

Serve this cheesy dip as an appetizer when you know your guests are coming over for dinner.

 Then, serve it at your next backyard football game.

16. S’mores Snack Mix

If you want to make a batch of these fabulous and nutritious s’mores, all you need are a few simple ingredients.

Cooked pretzels and graham crackers form the base for this recipe.

 You can add whatever condiments you like to top it off.

But if you happen to have some soft chocolate covered marshmallows left over from the day before, I highly recommend adding them in too.

Making a batch of this snack mix is an excellent way to use up all those leftover chocolate chip cookies or graham crackers!

17. Ranch Snack Mix

You could probably make this recipe number one if you wanted.

Moist, sweet, and full of flavor, it’s a great way to get kids eating healthier snacks.

But did you know that it can also be used as a dip?

The creamy mixture is perfect for chicken wings or even meatballs.

 If you want something to set the table for your next party, try making some Ranch dip!

18. Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese

This recipe is so good, you’ll want to eat it by itself.

 That’s just how good this apple and bacon grilled cheese sandwich is.

It has everything you could ask for in a sandwich: cheese, apples, bacon, and mayo are all present.

The sliced apples are sweet, crunchy, and a little bit caramelized.

 The mayo adds the perfect amount of tanginess.

Together with the buttery bread and smoky bacon bits, they create something truly special.

19. Archer Farms Trail Mix

Whole-grain trail mix has always been a huge favorite of mine.

It’s easy to make, and it’s so fun to eat! Plus, you can add all kinds of tasty toppings.

You can use any kind of dried fruit you like best, even if it isn’t part of the recipe.

Just be sure that it lasts at least another few days.

 Dried fruits keep better when stored in an airtight container.

I like to serve my trail mix with a big bowl of warm oatmeal or brown rice.

20. Campfire Mulled Wine

This drink is a timeless blend of berries and spices.

 It’s perfect for those cold winter nights.

The berries are sweetened with honey, while the spices add warmth and depth to the drink.

Once you try it, I know you won’t want to be without this recipe!

21. Campfire Spinach & Artichoke Dip

If you’re looking for a vegan, low-carb dip that packs more flavor than your local store-bought option, this recipe is the one to call.

It’s so rich and creamy, you won’t even miss the animal products.

Plus, it has tons of nutritional value you can count on!

The best part? It takes less than five minutes to make!

22. Trail Mix Protein Bites

These trail mix protein bites are a delicious way to get your daily dose of nutrients and energy.

They’re also a great way to add more variety to your diet.

Made with oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, chocolate chips, and carob chunks these little bites will keep you going for hours.

They’re vegan-friendly and make a great snack or appetizer.

 They’re also easy to make! Just toss everything into a food processor and blitz away.

I like to serve mine with maple syrup drizzled over the top for extra sweetness.

 It doesn’t get any better than this!

23. Campfire Cookies

These cookies are a little bit like cornbread.

They’re sweet, tender, and loaded with buttery goodness.

They’re also super moist, which is important for this recipe because the sugar helps to keep them from drying out.

The only thing I would advise against is adding the butter too soon or over-cooking.

You want to let it melt until it turns golden brown and smooth before you add anything else.

Some people like their cookies extra crispy, so feel free to top them with powdered sugar or chocolate chips.

24. Campfire Nachos

I almost pulled the trigger on making this recipe at home.

 But, like I said, I’m a bit lazy.

So, instead, I turned to my trusty copycat recipe.

These are basically mini-smores bites with melted chocolate and marshmallow topping.

They also have a couple of fun ingredients in them like hot sauce or cayenne pepper.

You can make all of these by using your favorite store-bought or homemade chocolate chips or whatever you think would go well together.


25. Campfire Pizza

Okay, okay, I know this may not be a pizza recipe.

But it’s so close!

This campfire pizza is the next best thing to the traditional savory bread and tomato sauce.

It incorporates a lot of veggies in one single dish – onions, peppers, potatoes, mushrooms, garlic… it all works together perfectly.

The only downside to this recipe is that you’ll need to make your own dough.

But I promise you that it won’t take more than 15 minutes!
