Summer has officially begun! Even though my boys still have a couple days left of school, we have definitely started planning our Summer fun. Of course, you probably know, Nick graduates this weekend, his party is next weekend, and we start travelling with Summer Baseball next week. We also surprised the boys yesterday with a swimming pool as a little gift for being on the Honor Roll all year.
Besides all of those exciting things, we have been chatting about other family fun. We thought it would be fun to share some ideas for Camping. Whether you just pitch a tent in the backyard, enjoy a stay-cation, or load up the camper and head to the park or campground for some family fun, you are sure to enjoy these recipes, games, and yes…Doug is even building a tent! So stay tuned all this week right here on Hoosier Homemade and be sure to follow us on Pocket Change Gourmet, where we will be sharing some delicious recipes with you!
When you think of treats around the Campfire, you almost always think of S’Mores. So what better way to kick off this Camping Week, than these Campfire Cupcakes.
These Campfire Cupcakes, that I spotted over at Betty Crocker, are the inspiration for our Camping Week. To make them taste like S’mores, you start with a chocolate cupcake and then top with Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting. But first, let’s make the fire…
Although I loved the look of the fire, and the ease of making it, I need to caution you, it’s not really kid friendly. After the candy is melted, you break it into pieces to create the look of fire, I was surprised that the pieces were very sharp, not something you want a child to handle.
So, my suggestion, if you are making these for children, you try using soft candy, maybe AirHeads, or even a fruit roll up for the fire.
The pretzels for the fire wood and the mini roasted marshmallows are perfect though.
Now it’s your turn…show off your cupcake creations! I’d appreciate a link back and be sure to check out the other cupcakes!
