Baked Apples Campfire Dessert Recipe

These healthy treats taste special when they’re cooked over a campfire. After you core the apples, let your kids stuff them and set them in the coals.


  • 1 apple
  • 2 to 4 tbsp. dried fruits and nuts
  • ½ to ¾ tsp. cinnamon sugar (mix ½ cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon)
  • ½ tsp. butter or margarine


Carefully core the apple, leaving the bottom intact. Stuff it with fruits and nuts of your choice, packing it fairly tight. Sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar and dot with butter. Wrap the apple in a double thickness of aluminum foil, twisting the ends at the top to form an easy handle.

Place the apple right side up on the coals. Bake for twelve to eighteen minutes, turning occasionally, or until the apple yields slightly when pushed with a gloved hand. Before serving, open the foil and let the aple cool for a few minutes. Serves one.
