campfire snack ideas (w/o marshmallows)

My son, 8, now has braces. so that rules out marshmallows and smores. My wife is having trouble finding ideas for snacks that can be cooked on a campfire that don't have marshmallows. Any ideas? He's not into the campfire pies...

thanks!

Jiffy Pop popcorn in the trays, but braces rule that out too.

Does he eat hotdogs?

hot dogs are fine, but trying to find a snack/desert idea.

Slice up a stick of pepperoni and push onto a marsh mellow fork or stick, roast over the fire until crispy. All the grease drains out, delish!!

What kind of snacks does he like?
Anything that can be cooked or baked inside can be adapted to the outside over a fire. Brownie mix in a mountain pie iron is delicious.

Fire pies...

Those sandwich makers you put in a fire. Bread and pie filling.

Why can't he have marshmallows?

I had braces for 4 years. The only limitation I had was no gum. Marshmallow comes right out if you brush your teeth.

They are yummy.

Also don't go into the campfire snacks with blinders on by only using hot dog forks and pie irons.

When my kids were small we made lots of thing over a campfire.

We would 'cook' Jello in an old coffee pot/tea kettle right on the fire.
Pour it into small plastic cups and put in the RV's freezer.
Iced Jello in about an hour.

We made all kind of things in tin foil pouches.

A small cast iron skillet or dutch oven can cook all the same things you'd make in the house.

It's all about the 'outdoor' experience.
