With the fall chill in the air some of us might be thinking about hibernating and putting away the camping gear, but if you do find yourself around a campfire this fall and have left over apples from your fall apple picking adventures, try this easy crowd-pleasing recipe for delicious apples baked in the campfire.

Besides being a healthy alternative to roasted marshmallows, campfire baked apples can be eaten directly from the foil (once cooled) making them an easy and fun camping snack!

Campfire Baked Apples

Ingredients

  • As many medium sized apples as you would like, it doesn't matter the kind, but keep in mind that the smaller and softer the apple is, the quicker it will bake!
  • Maple syrup
  • Raisins and pecans (if desired)

Instructions

  1. Using a knife and spoon, carefully carve out the core of the apple, leaving the bottom of the apple intact.
  2. Place each cored apple on their own large piece of tinfoil and place a few raisins and pecans in the apple's hole (if desired). Then pour maple syrup into hole until almost full.
  3. Wrap each apple in tin foil, creating a handle at the top of the foil wrap to make it easy for tongs to grasp.
  4. Once your campfire is nice and hot, place the wrapped apples on the coals using BBQ tongs (be careful!). Let the apples bake for 5-10 minutes, depending on the size of your apple. To check to see if your apple is ready simply remove the apple from the fire (using the tongs) and carefully unwrap and poke the apple with a spoon, if it is soft, it is ready!
  5. Let the apples cool for a couple of minutes before eating by carefully opening the tinfoil and letting the steam escape. Enjoy!
