Salted Caramel Camping Dessert

Who says you can't treat yourself to decadent desserts while camping? A campfire is the perfect tool for roasting, baking and melting concoctions into a camping dessert even the finest pastry chef would applaud. And these treats are appreciated the most after a grueling day on the trail.

Today we are going to show you how to make a simple campfire dessert that combines the go-to roasted marshmallow with a classic candy. The result is an incredibly sweet, caramel-meets-chocolate dessert with a hint of sea-salt. We call it the Marsh-Rolo.

Yes, you guessed it! The Marsh-Rolo is a marshmallow treat that includes Rolo candies. This sweet snack is prepared over a fire, whether that be a campfire, a cozy fire at home or the flame of a gas stove.

Step 1: Press Rolo into the center of the marshmallow, just deep enough so it doesn't fall out while roasting. Place the marshmallow, Rolo combination on a roasting stick.

Step 2: Roast until the marshmallow is golden brown and the Rolo has started to melt.

Step 3: Drizzle with caramel topping if desired.
