Campfire Éclairs

Well, my family and I are still recovering from our weekend camping trip at Indian Hills with my son’s cub scout pack. Let me rephrase that: I am still recovering, unpacking and washing everything from our weekend camping trip! We had a great time and have terrific memories. My two boys got to ride the BMX track over and over and over again. And they had a blast on the zip-line, climbing rocks and eating s’mores for breakfast! My 3 year old girl had fun, too, making a mess of herself in the dirt and making friends with every girl she found. She cried when we left and said she wanted to live there!

Now having the cub master as my husband, we decided to spice things up with a new campfire dessert we learned from a fellow friend and cub master. It’s the Campfire Éclair. Now, I admit that when my husband described it to me, I was a bit skeptical. A biscuit filled with pudding? What?!! Well, as any engineer would, we first made it at home before field-testing this at the camp.

WOAH! Sick of burnt marshmallows? Then this éclair is for you. It’s easy and everything you need is available pre-made (so easy): refrigerated biscuit dough, whipped cream, pudding cups. You can kick it up a notch with fresh berries and top it with M&M;’s. Got your attention now?
