Last weekend we headed inland and went luxury camping with some friends. We went to Wattle Hill Oast in Staplecross, East Sussex which provides bell tents, fire pits and the best bit …. a swimming pool, sauna and gym!
It was great to spend some time relaxing, eating and talking with friends and as our kids are all now teenagers, it was good to see them all enjoying one another’s company.
Once the fire is going it’s hard for me not to want to keep cooking but I was planning on cooking sweet flat breads on the fire but just couldn’t be bothered with the fuss and mess so I took the easy option of S’mores and other sweet campfire treats. Before that we had grilled steak, sausages, marinated olives and campfire cooked Camembert all laid out on the table. I do like a feast.
We used old wire coat hangers unravelled and stretched out to make a perfect toasting tool. If you lay out all the ingredients for everyone to make their own treats and variations it makes it a whole lot easier than doing individually as we did.
Easy S’mores (to feed 8)
1 packet of marshmallows
1 packet of chocolate digestive biscuits
Add Reece’s Peanut Putter Cups
Add a square of your favourite chocolate, milk or plain or mint
Slice from your favourite snack bar – Snickers, Mars or After Eight
Other Campfire Treats
Toasted Starbursts – place on toasting fork and warm.
Toast Marshmallows with mini Rollo chocolates stuffed inside. Delish.
Campfire Camembert (serves 4 – 6)
1 Camembert cheese in a box
2 cloves garlic, sliced
fresh Rosemary sprigs
Splash white wine or vermouth or cider
salt and freshly ground black pepper
bit of orange peel if you have it – don’t worry if not
Take the cheese out of the box and remove the outer packaging and return the cheese to the box. Poke into the cheese with a knife slices of the garlic and bits of rosemary. Sprinkle over some white, vermouth or cider and then wrap the whole thing in foil ready to place on the grill.
Cook for 10-15 mins depending on heat and space available. It really won’t come to too much harm.
Open up and dip with bread chunks. I eat it skin and all.
