Here’s a few popular chocolate campfire recipes to indulge in this Easter. But before striking that first match, check the fire restrictions, as some regions have extended the Fire Danger Season dates. See the CFS website here.
Chocolate Orange Campfire Cake
1 recipe chocolate cake batter, prepared in advance (box mix is fine)
Cut the tops off the oranges and scoop out the pulp. Fill the oranges three-quarters of the way with the chocolate cake batter (or cake mix) of your choice, then put the orange tops back on and wrap each orange in aluminum foil.
Place directly onto the smouldering coals of the campfire, avoiding any intense flames, and cook for about 30 minutes, turning once or twice.
Real Hot Chocolate
1L (4 cups) milk
100g good-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
Marshmallows, to serve
Place the milk in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside for 1 minute. Place 20g of the chocolate in each of four heatproof serving glasses. Pour the hot milk over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate melts and is smooth. Top with marshmallows and sprinkle with the remaining chocolate. Serve immediately.
Try Oreos or even Anzac biscuits. Toast marshmallows on the fire until gooey. Put the marshy between two biscuits with a piece of chocolate. Prepare for the sugar hit! Try adding peanut butter to add another taste sensation.
Campfire Banana Splits
6 large bananas, unpeeled and stems removed
375g pack Nestle Bakers’ Choice Milk Choc Bits, maybe get an extra pack just in case 😉
285g mini marshamallows
Get the camp fire coals nice and hot. Spray 4 sheets of aluminum foil, large enough to wrap bananas, with cooking spray. Slice the peel of the banana from stem to bottom, while slicing the banana inside lengthwise.
Carefully open the banana just wide enough to place the chocolate chips and marshmallows inside the peel with the banana. Stuff with as much of the chocolate chips and marshmallows as desired.
Wrap the bananas with the aluminum foil and place on the grill or directly in the coals of a fire. Leave in long enough to melt the chips and the marshmallows, about 5 minutes. Unwrap bananas, open the peels wide, and eat with a spoon.
