Cinnamon Sugar Monkey Bread – The Concept
This sweet campfire treat is so simple; it’s just cut-up biscuit doughs tossed in a sugar mix and baked, (that’s right, baked!), in a Dutch oven or Pie Iron over hot campfire coals. It only takes about 25 – 30 minutes to cook, and should be eaten right out of the Dutch oven.
Just watch the fun as the kids cut their biscuit dough and shake the bag to add a cinnamon sugar coating.
Then let them toss them into the Dutch oven any way they want. This camp recipes for kids isn’t just delicious – it’s fun too.
This treat is best cooked with a Dutch oven, over medium campfire coals. But you can also use a cast iron skillet with a lid, and some aluminum foil. *It can also be cooked in individual pie irons by the kids.
- A Dutch Oven or Pie Iron(s)
- Refrigerated biscuit doughs
- Granulated and Light Brown sugar
- Ground cinnamon
- Butter or margarine
- Paper or plastic bag(s) (for the cinnamon/sugar mix)
