Fun Camping Recipes for Kids

Campfire Cinnamon Sugar Monkey Bread – another fun and easy camping recipes for kids that they can help make themselves, with just a little adult supervision. This one is so easy the kids will want to do it on every camping trip. It also makes a great evening campfire treat.

Dutch Oven Monkey Bread – The Concept

This sweet campfire treat is so simple; it’s just cut-up biscuit doughs tossed in a cinnamon & 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 campfire treat isn’t just delicious – it’s fun too.

It 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.

Here is all you need for this camp or campfire treat:

  • 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)
