Camping S'moregasbord

It is a family tradition that over Memorial Day we pack up and go camping in the snow for the weekend.  This past weekend we were blessed with absolutely beautiful weather and the stomach flu, (but that is another story).

Anyways one of my favorite memories and one that my kids really enjoy is the time we spend around the campfire.  Usually telling stories or jokes, but occasionally having great talks.

We also like to make S'mores.  This year we kicked up our campfire treats and had a S'moregasbord.

 We usually do regular S'mores with marshmallows and chocolate and graham crackers.  Then a few years ago my youngest brother and my dad invented "the Family Snacks" in which we take two chips ahoy chocolate chips and squish a perfectly roasted marshmallow in between.

This year we brought up Oreos and cookies n' cream chocolate and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  We all had fun mixing things up a bit and trying new things.

Before we left we also had to roast a few Starburst for my youngest brother who is serving an LDS mission in Armenia.  His favorite was to twist a few different colors together and then roast.

Maybe next year we will get crazy and throw some twix in the mix.  What are some of your favorite campfire desserts?
