Skip the Smores and Try these Grilled Snacks Instead

Banana_boatSmores are a classic campfire treat that people of all ages enjoy. The sweet chocolate paired with gooey marshmallow and crunchy graham crackers are perfect for outdoor parties and social gatherings. But there are other snacks that are equally, if not, more delicious. So if you’re tired of roasting smores night after night, perhaps you should try one of the following.

Banana Boats

No, I’m not talking about the big banana-shaped boats that float around beach coastlines. The banana boats I’m referring to are a fun take on the traditional smores. As shown in the photo to the left, this delightful treat combines bananas, chocolate and marshmallows. Simply cut a banana open lengthwise, stuff it full with marshmallow and chocolate, wrap it aluminum foil, and toss it on the grill for a few minutes.

Apple Cinnamon Treats

Who doesn’t love apple cinnamon? Using a paring knife (or any knife) cut an apple in half, remove a small amount of the fibrous material, and fill with brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and butter. You can then either place it directly on the grill or wrap in aluminum foil. Once cooked, you’ll have a deliciously flavored apple cinnamon treat that’s guaranteed to draw compliments from your guests.

Cinnamon Role Sticks

While we’re on the topic of cinnamon, let’s go ahead and cover cinnamon role sticks. As the name suggests, these are sticks of cinnamon rolls. Pick up a roll of your favorite cinnamon rolls from the local grocery store, pierce them with a skewer, and toss on the grill. Once cooked, remove from heat, add icing and enjoy!

Marshmallow-Filled Cones

Another fun alternative to smores is a marshmallow-filled ice cream cone, without the ice cream of course. Take a waffle cone (or any ice cream cone) and fill with mini marshmallows and fruit of your choosing. Some fruits that work well for this treat include strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. Now wrap the cone in aluminum foil and grill on for a few minutes. The inside of the cone should turn into a sweet and fruity mixture. Although messy, this is a delicious treat that can be made in dozens of different ways.

These are just a few delicious alternatives to smores. Feel free to experiment with your own ingredients to see what treats you can come up with.
