Check out these genius food hacks you’ll want to remember for your next getaway:
It doesn’t get any easier than this: purchase (or make) some cinnamon buns ahead of time. Bring some skewers. Roast the buns on the skewers over your campfire and they’ll be gooey and delicious in no time.
Before you leave, crack a dozen or so eggs and store them in a plastic bottle. You won’t have to worry about them breaking, you’ll save space, and they’ll be all scrambled up and ready to cook.

BYO Pancake Batter
Make the batter ahead of time, using your go-to recipe. Then, pack it up in a reusable sandwich bag or water bottle. When you’re ready to whip up some breakfast, just pipe your pancakes right onto your camping stove.
Next-Level Roasted Marshmallows
Very simple, very delicious. First, you roast your marshmallows. Then, dip it in some Baileys (be sure to follow the steps in that order).
Level Up Your S’mores
Stuff some chocolate, marshmallows, peanut butter cups and any other sweet toppings or nuts into in an ice-cream cone. Wrap the cone up in foil, and roast over your campfire for 5 mins. Pure yum.
