Yesterday I wrote about my experience at Girls Camp. One thing I left out of that post is what I am going to write about today, because believe me, this thing deserves its own post! One night, the leaders of the camp came around to each tent site and gave each person a thing called a Stuff 'em Stick! Along with the stick, they gave us biscuit dough, pie fillings and whipped topping and explained to us how to roast the biscuits over the coals of the campfire and make ourselves mini cobblers. It was so much fun and amazing! Our camp leaders made us these sticks and engraved the theme of the camp on each one.
You use them by taking a can of biscuit dough and cutting each biscuit in half. At least, at camp we used biscuit dough, but I heard a rumor that crescent dough is better and so I tried it, and guess what! I liked it even better! But, either one will work and in a minute I will show you some other variations!
So, when I used the crescent roll dough, I took one big triangle of the dough and I cut it in half and then wrapped it and squeezed it around the large knob of the Stuff 'em Stick. The sticks had been soaked in oil, so there is no need to spray it, but you can if you want. Maybe as it gets older and starts to dry out I will have to soak it again or spray it. So far, there has been no sticking.
I decided that apple pie filling would be delicious is a cinnamon roll crust!
I simply opened a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls and smashed a roll flat in my hand. Then, I wrapped it around the Stuff 'em stick. Make sure to stick the layers of the spiral roll together!
I think that another beauty of these sticks is that you don't have to worry about kids stabbing each other in the eye like you do when you are using marshmallow roasting sticks! Plus, there are so many other variations! Wouldn't it be great to use cookie dough to make the shell for the chocolate pudding? Add marshmallows and you have a s'more like final result! Since you use only half a crescent roll, one can of dough will make 16 Stuff 'ems. Here are a few more photos:
You can make these sticks, like our leaders did, for yourself! That is what I want to do as gifts to my family. Or, you can order them from a couple of places.
What a fun party around the campfire, either in your own backyard or up camping! I fell in love with this Stuff 'em Stick idea! You could even do little pot pies or brownie cups! The possibilities are endless! Let me know what your ideas are!
