Summer Campout Week, Last Day - Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ S'Mores and More

Oh, the last day of my Summer Campout! I hope I have inspired you to do some camping.

Don't forget to enter the Giveaway! It's not too late.

For chocolate goodness while camping, of course you must have s'mores around your campfire. I agree that they are delicious, but we have decided that we don't like bothering with the pieces of chocolate that can shift around. We have developed our own yummy version of S'Mores. Here it is:

Nutella S'Mores

Instead of using chocolate pieces, spread Nutella (if you have never had this, you are missing out!!) on a graham cracker, then top with roasted marshmallow and another graham cracker. Or you could go wild and spread the Nutella on both graham crackers! Yum! **

Another camping treat is making your own ice cream. We make vanilla, but I like to add M&Ms or mini chocolate chips to mine. Here's the recipe:

Ice Cream In A Bag

1/2 cup half and half
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix these ingredients in a sandwich-size ziploc bag and seal. I suggest double-bagging it. In a gallon-size ziploc bag, fill 1/2 to 3/4 with ice and add 5-6 tablespoons rock salt. Add the double-bagged mixture. Seal and shake, roll, or throw for 5-15 minutes and you will have ice cream! It is COLD, so you might want gloves on. Take out ice cream, add desired mix-ins and EAT!

Have fun trying these out! Thanks for camping with me!

** Now you know why Nutella is included in my Summer Campout Giveaway package! Giveaway details are in yesterday's post.


  1. You seriously have inspired me to want to go camping! Is it possible to go camping with a 15 month old who doesn't walk yet and puts everything in his path in his mouth? Hmmm...

  2. Mmmmmmmmm... Nutella! This is a favorite at our home! We make Ritz sandwiches out of it. YUM!

    I posted on our camping trip today if you're interested...

  3. I left a comment earlier today on your yesterday's blog. I included a comment about the smores!

  4. I gain weight just reading your stuff!

    I so want to pack up and take off camping...but I don't think our guest coming would apprieciate this...?

    Oh well there's always next or the next...I bet you had a blast!

  5. I hope you don't mind if I share a little "smores alternative" as well. I found that smores were just too sweetsie for me to eat more than one of, and, OF COURSE, I wanted to eat more than one, LOL. So I now make them with chips ahoy chocolate chip cookies and half a marshmallow. Lightly roast a half marshmallow and smash between two cookies. Yum!

  6. I have a friend who is Swiss or somethign like that and she used to love Nutella. She'd eat it with a spoon.

  7. Hi Lisa, I just stopped over to see if you were back, and didn't realize you had been posting all week. You can get internet service in the woods??? LOLOL! That's amazing! So, sorry I haven't been by! :) It looks like you guys have been having a great time! I love the recipes you posted and the pictures are great!

    Hugs, Rhonda
