Pot of S’mores

One of our favorite parts of camping near Lake Erie is the food! One question we get from most of our Lakewood Estates campers is if we know any great recipes they can cook while staying here. We decided it would be a great idea to share our favorite recipes on our blog! 

Personally, I have a sweet tooth and love to sit by the fire snacking on one of my favorite desserts after a delicious meal. I am going to share one of my personal favorite dessert recipes here. If you are looking for dinner or lunch recipes then check out our other blog post.

No More Hassle or Sticky!

This is one of my favorite recipes that I found from tasteofhome.com. Smores are a common treat amongst campers but sometimes they can get a little crazy with little campers! It can be a real struggle for parents to keep the kids out of the fire, keep the chocolate or grams out of the dirt, all while trying not to burn the mellows! This recipe is great to have S’mores without the hassle and even prevents stick hands! 

If you have little ones then we highly recommend you try this recipe!


  • 1 package (14-1/2 ounces) graham crackers, crushed
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows


  1. Prepare grill or campfire for low heat, using 16-18 charcoal briquettes or large wood chips.
  2. Line a cast-iron Dutch oven with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Combine cracker crumbs and butter; press into bottom of pan. Pour milk over crust and sprinkle with chocolate and butterscotch chips. Top with marshmallows.
  3. Cover Dutch oven. When briquettes or wood chips are covered with white ash, place Dutch oven directly on top of 6 of them. Using long-handled tongs, place remaining briquettes on pan cover.
  4. Cook until marshmallows begin to melt, about 15 minutes. To check for doneness, use the tongs to carefully lift the cover.
