Girl Scouts of Central Illinois teach their girl scouts these few recipes.

Campfire Muffins (courtesy of )

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 12


- 6 oranges- 2 (7 ounce) packages blueberry muffin mix (or any flavor)


Cut oranges in half. Scoop out the orange segments to eat alone. Reserve the hollow peel shells. Prepare the muffin mix according to the package directions. Fill the orange peel cups half full of batter. Wrap each one loosely with heavy duty aluminum foil. Place in hot coals, making sure that the batter side stays up. Cook 6-10 minutes until muffins are done. Adding a few berries to the batter adds excellent flavor. Note: Use 3 oranges per package of muffin mix.


Pie Iron Pizza (courtesy of )

This is a great recipe to try around the campfire with cast-iron pie irons.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


- 2 slices of bread - butter - pizza sauce- mozzarella cheese- pizza toppings


Butter one side of each bread slice. Put one slice, un-buttered side facing up, in the pie iron. Add sauce, cheese and any topping you like. Top this with the other slice of bread, buttered side up, then close the pie iron and lock it. Place the pie iron in the coals of the campfire for about 2 minutes then flip. Cook another 2 minutes then continue flipping and checking until your total cooking time comes to ten minutes. You have yourself a great pizza.


Some More Recipe (from the 1927 Girl Scout Handbook)


- 8 sticks (for toasting the marshmallows) - 16 graham crackers - 8 bars plain chocolate (broken in two) - 16 marshmallows


Toast two marshmallows over the coals to a crisp gooey state and then put them inside a graham cracker and chocolate bar sandwich. The heat of the marshmallow between the halves of chocolate bar will melt the chocolate a bit. Though it tastes like "some more", one is really enough.
