Campfire-Baked Stuffed Apples

Warm your hands and toes by the campfire while you prepare campfire-baked stuffed apples. Tart apples are stuffed with a sweet oat and raisin mixture. They are then roasted in the fire to give them a slightly smoky aroma.

This is the perfect recipe to prepare when you have plenty of hot coals at your campfire. Throw the apples in the coals while you eat dinner, and you’ll have a warm dessert waiting for you.

Try adding other flavors and ingredients to play around with the recipe. You can substitute dried cranberries or currents, or a spice like nutmeg. Or add a handful of toasted nuts, like pecans or walnuts.
