Keep Calm and Go Camping

It is camping season!
Our first camp trip is planned for the last weekend of May. The count down has already started!
We love to make S'mores.
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup is my husbands favorite.
I like using York Mints or Hershey's.
If you have not tried York Mints, give it a try. I know it may sound like a strange combination, York Mints and marshmallows, but it is so good!


Flicker of the Campfire!

Another favorite of ours are Pudgy Pies.
We like to do several combinations with Pudgy Pies.

Fruit filling makes a fun breakfast pie.
Chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallows make a fun dessert.
Cheese and ham make a great super.

Do you make Pudgy Pies?
Do you have a favorite recipe?

Are you looking forward to any outdoor adventures this summer?


  1. Love that campfire shot! I know you guys will have a great time camping. Watch out for the snow. ;-)

  2. We used to camp years ago with the kids. I don't think I could do it anymore unless I had a RV. Those pudgy pies are a great idea! Enjoy your camping trip! Thank you for visiting me!

  3. How fun! I have never even heard of a pudgy pie before, where do you find the "irons" for making them?

  4. Brings back memories. We use to make cherry ones and tuna melts! Have fun on your trip! Janice

  5. What a delightful post--we love to camp! I want to try the peppermint s'more!

  6. My husband is a Scout leader here in New Zealand, he loves camping. There is usually one meal that the scouts cook over fires - so always interestingto find new SMore ideas, that we can adampt to NZ chocolate flavours.
