Halloween Campfire Recipes | Valley of Women



Spooky and cool October nights are great for sitting around a fire, telling ghost stories, and baking delicious treats.

Here are some campfire recipes that are devilishly delicious.


The classic campfire treat – graham crackers, chocolate and a toasted marshmallow. Brighten up your s’mores with fruit (strawberry slices are a great choice), extras like peanut butter or a s’mores bar with plenty of candy options to add to your campfire creation.

Nachos in foil



Lean ground beef

Your favorite taco seasoning

Canned green peppers, drained

Canned diced tomatoes, drained

Canned black beans, drained

Onion, diced

Mexican blend grated cheese

Sour cream for garnish


1. Brown the ground beef over medium-high heat on the stovetop. Stir in taco seasoning to coat, then add tomatoes and green peppers. Remove from the heat and set aside.

2. Fold the foil pouches into the desired serving size. Make sure to fold the foil in half, then use one half to hold the food and the other half to cover.

3. Place chips in bottom of package, then sprinkle with ground beef, black beans, onion and cheese, as desired.

4. Fold the other half of the package over and pinch. Cut a hole in the top of each package so that the steam can escape and keep the crisps from getting soggy.

5. Place on hot coals or off heat for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Walking tacos

The ultimate in tasty ready meals. Use a bag of corn chips as the base for your taco. Add the toppings to the open bag, grab a fork, and start following the kids for your sleight of hand. Set up a traveling taco bar to party with pulled pork, ground beef, and plenty of other toppings for your guests to choose from. For vegetarian guests, grill vegetables and offer beans. Offer salsas, cheeses and other condiments and let’s go.

Campfire dessert cones

Let kids wrap a waffle cone with candies, marshmallows, chocolate chips and more. Wrap each cone in foil, then cook on the heat until heated through. It should take about 10 minutes. Let them cool a bit before serving. F
