During colder weather I especially love soups and warm treats. A family favorite are these tinfoil desserts. They are so easy and taste amazing! And what I love the most about them, is that you can make them as healthy or not (cue chocolate cravings) as you want and they always turn out yummy! They are perfect year round whether you cook them in your oven, in your grill or in a fire on a camp out.
What You Need:
- Spoon or fork
- Brown sugar
- Other spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, etc.) *optional
Step 1: Cut the top off the apple (you want to save it as a lid) and core the apple. Try to leave the bottom of the hole intact, so you have a little bucket. I discovered the easiest way to do this, is to cut around the core with a sharp knife and then use a spoon or fork to twist it into the core kind of like a drill. This is a lot easier than trying to dig it out with the knife.
Step 2: Pack it full of brown sugar. You can add other spices if you would like. We have tested out a few different combinations of spices and sugar and we liked the plain brown sugar the best.
Step 3: Replace the top of the apple to make the apple whole again and wrap it with tinfoil (shiny side up). You may want to double wrap it.
Step 4: Bake in warm coals for 5 – 10 minutes. Closer to 10 for us! If you are at home and happen to have some vanilla ice cream, this tastes heavenly with ice cream and a little granola sprinkled on top.
I’m not a big banana person, but I love this! It reminded me a lot of the taste of banana bread! Oh, so good!!
Banana with the peel attached
chocolate chips (one kind or a variety…whatever is on hand works well!)
Anything else that melts or tastes good that you love to eat (crushed candy bars, nuts, etc)
