You guys. Camping in Mississippi in a tent in June is kind of hard. Physically.
But we did it because we have grandsons and they are awesome and they need to be fishing and camping and riding bikes and just doin’ outside, nature stuff. So we did.
And I’m gonna tell you that I really had a great time in spite of the ants. And the mosquitos. And the heat. And the dirt. And the showers. (Oh, Lord Jesus, the showers. I can’t even.)
And the squirrel who ate my homemade granola. [I’m *still* a little mad about that.]
But these two will have memories. Okay, only the oldest will have memories and the youngest one will probably not be able to form memories until he is about three or four. But we will happily do it all again when he is old enough to have it etched in his mind.
It is, however, etched in my mind. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
And I even came away with a keeper campfire recipe that made everybody super happy. Because I can only eat so many s’mores before I start wanting to go to the next level.
These sweet little dessert burritos are stuffed with you favorite candy bar, grilled to crispy and warm and melty on the grill, then rolled in cinnamon sugar.
I know, right? Do it at your next campfire or barbecue.
–I used regular size candy bars. Not mini. Not king size. (Although, there’s a thought. Using a king size candy bar with a large burrito size tortilla. Hmmm…)
–I grilled them just until grill marks happened over a medium heat grill.
–You will want to brush or dip with butter twice. Once for the grill, then again right after you take them off. I tried rolling one in cinnamon sugar before it was dipped the second time and the mixture would not stick.
–Fold them up tight, burrito style.
–Make sure your candy bars are not straight out of the cooler, or they won’t melt well.
- Small fajita size flour tortillas
- Regular size candy bars such as Snickers, Milky Way, etc.
- Melted butter
- Cinnamon sugar (about 1 cup sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons cinnamon, more or less)
- Warm tortillas slightly on a medium heat grill or campfire with a grilling rack placed over it. I place them directly on the hot grill for about 20 seconds. (This helps make them pliable and easy to fold.)
- Place a tortilla on a cutting board. Place a candy bar in the center of it, but slightly closer to one edge. Wrap the candy bar burrito style, by folding the edge closest to the candy bar over the candy bar one time, then folding in the sides, then rolling all the way. Brush the edge with melted butter to make it stick, then lightly brush the entire burrito with melted butter. (Or place in butter and roll.)
- Place on a grill, seam side down, just until burrito has grill marks, turning once. Remove from grill and brush or dip in the melted butter again. Immediately place in cinnamon-sugar mixture and roll to completely cover. Eat while still warm. Messy, but totally worth it!
