7 Tasty Campfire Marshmallow Desserts


One of the best parts of car camping and having a warm campfire is being able to toast marshmallows. There’s nothing that both adults and children look forward to more than eating these sticky puffs under the stars, surrounded by friends and family. Though s’mores are always a delicious go-to, there are tons of other marshmallow desserts that you need to try this camping season:

Roasted Strawberries in Marshmallow Fluff

You might wonder why you’d ever need to use Marshmallow Fluff when marshmallows are so delicious. However, sometimes a marshmallow alternative, like Fluff, is a lot easier to spread. This recipe is super easy and cheap to make, and it’s perfect for campers who love a little fruit with their sweet tooth.

What you need:

  • Marshmallow Fluff
  • Strawberries
  • Skewers

Heat the Fluff so it’s a easier to maneuver. Stick the strawberry onto a skewer. Dip or spread the fluff onto the bottom half of the strawberry. Then, roast the entire thing until the Fluff is a little brown and the strawberry is a little warm. That’s it! Scrumptious!

Campfire S’mores Dip

S’mores, while fun to make, can be really messy; even disastrous at some points. The worst thing that can happen after making a perfect s’more is having it fall off your skewer, right onto the dirty campground. This recipe has the same s’more marshmallow deliciousness, but without the mess.

What you need:

  • A tub of Philadelphia chocolate cream cheese
  • A spoonful of Fluff
  • A handful of chocolate chips
  • A handful of mini-marshmallows (or big ones if you so choose)
  • Graham crackers
  • Foil and wax paper

Layer wax paper on top of foil. Dump out the entire tub of chocolate cream cheese onto the wax paper. On top of that, add the Fluff. Wrap it up, then heat on the campfire for about 15 minutes, until it has the right, gooey consistency. When it’s ready, open it up and pile on the marshmallows and chocolate chips. There you have it! Dip in graham crackers, and you’ll never look at s’mores the same way again.

Skillet Strawberry S’mores


This recipe has all the best ingredients, combined into one amazing treat. Skillet Strawberry S’mores have a little more variety, for campers who don’t like to feel so guilty about their dessert choices.

What you need:

  • 1 sleeve graham crackers
  • ½ cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup of mini-marshmallows
  • Skillet or pan

Layer a pan or skillet with the graham crackers. On top of the graham crackers, put the chocolate chips, strawberries, and the marshmallows. Wait until the marshmallows are nicely toasted. Let it cool a bit, and break off pieces to eat.

Campfire Cones

Ice cream is good and all, but a campfire cones take camping desserts to the next level. Follow this recipe and you’ll never want a cone filled with anything else ever again.

What you need:

  • Waffle ice cream cones
  • Marshmallows
  • Filling ingredients (mini-marshmallows, almonds, chocolate chips, peanut butter, bananas, etc.)
  • Foil
  • Tongs

Pre-assemble the cones before you go out camping. This can be a fun activity at home. Each layer of filling should be on top of a layer with marshmallows, to keep everything together. Wrap the cones tightly in foil for transport and cooking. When you get to the campfire, roast right on top for about 5 minutes using tongs. When it’s melted, remove from the fire and let it cool. Carefully take off the foil and eat!

Bailey’s Dipped Toasted Marshmallows

For camping adults that want to “heat things up” a little bit, then consider making Bailey’s Dipped Toasted Marshmallows. This mouth-watering recipes puts a mature spin on an innocent campfire snack, and it’s amazing.

What you need:

  • A cup of Bailey’s
  • Marshmallows
  • Skewers

This two ingredient recipe is pretty straightforward. Stick your marshmallow on a skewer, wait til it’s hot and gooey, and dip it into a cup of Bailey’s. Camping has never been so much fun.

Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores

S’mores made with graham crackers are awesome. S’mores made without graham crackers and with chocolate chip cookies as a replacement, are heavenly. This is one food everyone must try before they die, but don’t wait until you’re too old to try it. 

  • Entenmann’s Chocolate Chip Cookie
  • Marshmallows
  • A handful of chocolate chips
  • Skewers

This recipe typically calls for making your own chocolate chip cookies, which you can do if you have the time at home. For those who plan on making this all out on the campground, grab a box of the small chocolate chip cookies from Entenmann’s. When you get to the campfire, toast your marshmallow, and melt the chocolate chips. Sandwich between two chocolate chip cookies, and eat up!

Grilled Marshmallow and Nutella Sandwich


If chocolate chip cookie sandwiches aren’t for you (and even if they are), sometimes it’s good to have a sandwich the “old fashioned way”. By old-fashioned of course, we mean with bread. 

What you need:

  • White bread
  • Fluff (or real marshmallows)
  • Nutella

Toast the bread as if you were making a grilled cheese. Put on the Nutella, and let it melt. Pre-toast the marshmallows or just use Fluff, and throw them on or spread it on top of the toasted bread and Nutella. Smush together, and enjoy!

S’mores are delicious, but there are so many other variations of desserts you can make with marshmallows. Don’t miss out!
