If it were up to me, we would go camping every weekend.  I adore camping.  My three teenagers however, view camping as a form of torture.  I’m not sure when camping transformed into misery for them, but they used to love it as much as I do.

I refuse to allow three grouchy teens to ruin the fun for everyone, so I drag them along anyways.  Miserable?  Sometimes, but it’s amazing to watch their transformation back into FUN children when they finally let down their “this sucks” facade.

The key to a successful camping trip for our family of 8 is good food that is anything but good for you.  All those treats, snacks, drinks and meals that Mom would never serve if we were at home.  We have a lot of traditions when it comes to camping food, but this is our newest addiction.

I saw the idea on SimplyBePhoto and knew it would be a huge hit with our family.  She used Rolos, but we expanded her amazing idea to include Reeses and Snickers Minis.  My personal favorite was the Snickers stuffed roasted marshmallows but they were all quite outstanding.

To make them, use a sharp knife to cut a slit all the way through the middle of the marshmallow then stuff it with a mini candy of your choosing.  When you skewer it, be sure to go through the middle of the candy or it will get hot and fall out.

Out of the three candies we used, we found the Reese’s to melt the fastest over the fire and it was the most likely to fall off your skewer completely.   The Snickers stayed on the best, I think because the peanuts gave it a bit more friction.  Also, if you use metal roasters, let them cool before sticking more stuffed marshmallows on or the chocolate melts and the result is all that deliciousness bursting into horrifying flames in the fire.  We lost a few precious delectables to the fire Gods during our learning process 🙂

This looks and sounds delish and an easier option than smores.

As for those teens, the skulking seems typical for that age. And glad they come around and enjoy the camping experience.
