Stuff the cone with whatever ingredient you like.
If you have a bonfire at the camp, throw it on the grill for 3-4 minutes or just enough for the marshmallows and chocolate to become gooey, finish with whipped cream on the top.

Grilled Steak Kebabs
Put all the vegetables in one zip bag, pour in Italian dressing. Put the steak in another zip bag and add steak seasoning and marinade. Leave both the bags in the fridge to marinate overnight.
At the camp:
Alternately stick the vegetables and steak onto the skewers and grill for about 15 minutes or until desired doneness.

Campfire Roasted Peaches
This version of roasted peaches is straight from a personal experience of a Napier staff, this is a tried and tested recipe!
Coat the aluminum foil with butter (and sugar), fill the peaches’ pit with chocolate. Put back the halves together and wrap with foil.
When you have the peach ‘balls’ wrapped in foil, throw them into the hot campfire ashes/grill and let them cook on low for about 20 minutes. Serve!
Tin Foil Hotdogs
Make a pocket on the hotdog by slitting it lengthwise, stuff the ‘pocket’ with string cheese.
Wrap the bacon around the hotdog and then wrap with a square cut foil. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how you like your hotdog and how crispy you like your bacon.
You can also put the cooked hotdogs in a bun to make it into a meal!
Campfire Cinnamon Roll Ups
Pre-mix cinnamon and sugar and keep them tightly secured in a mason jar.
Pull apart crescent rolls so you can wrap them around the skewer. Roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture and cook for 5 minutes and you’re all set!
*Rotate frequently to avoid burning some parts.
