There are few things that my boys love more than camping! They would live outside if it wasn’t for mosquitos.  And even if we aren’t able to head out on a camping trip, they will beg to build a fire.  One of my favorite things about camping is the food.  And if you are looking for a yummy camping dessert, these Campfire Cinnamon Twists are bound to be a huge hit!

How to Make Campfire Cinnamon Twists

These are so simple to make and your kids can help put them together.

Ingredients needed:


  1. Open your crescents and separate them and lay them out flat.

  2. Spread butter over the surface of each one.
  3. Sprinkle the surface of each crescent with a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar.

  4. Roll each one up like a “snake” so you have one long line of dough for each crescent.
  5. Take a kabob stick, and beginning halfway down the stick, start wrapping a single crescent around the stick until you reach the end. It should do a good job of holding on without any special treatment.

  6. Either hold over the fire if your stick is long enough or lay on a grate for about 8-10 minutes.
  7. If desired, to make the light icing on the top, mix together a half cup powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk.
  8. Drizzle this mixture over the finished cinnamon twists.
  9. Enjoy!!  These are so delicious!
