Campfire Cinnamon Roll-ups

It is a proven fact that campfire food is pretty much the best food on the planet. Even though I’m not into roughing it anymore (glamping is more my style) I still love to sit around a fire pit and indulge in some good old fashioned campfire food.  A long time ago before I had a mess of kids, I used to go camping with my friends as often as I could. We would load up the trucks, pack all the supplies and rough it for a weekend. The best part was sitting around the campfire and roasting marshmallows, hotdogs and these easy and delicious Campfire Cinnamon Roll-ups.

These sweets treats are made with just 3 easy to pack ingredients and only take about five minutes to cook over an open flame. These make a fabulous camping breakfast, especially combined with some campfire scrambled eggs and orange juice. Seriously, yum! Doesn’t that sound amazing?!

    I have been missing out!! I went camping MANY times pre-kids and never had a campfire cinnamon roll up!! (I thought the scrambled eggs were pretty impressive!) These are great!

    Could you do these and bake in the oven instead?? Decorating a table with the glamping theme and wanted to make them.

    Could you get a tube package of cinnamon rolls and just unroll the dough and wrap around the skewers, cook, and drizzle on the icing it comes with?

      Hi Alisha! I tried that once and found the dough was too thick to cook over the campfire, it took a good 15-20 minutes to get it cooked all the way through. The crescent rolls are just thin enough that they cook very fast over the fire :)
