I love a good campfire. Our little Munchkins missed out on a campfire when we stayed in a Tree House for our anniversary weekend at the beginning of June. To introduce them to the whole campfire experience we set up a fire pit at the bottom of the garden. I love their enthusiasm! The whole of life being one exciting adventure.
After setting down some ground rules…
We lit the fire. Thankfully there are no causalities to report 🙂
I used to enjoy barbequed banana and chocolate as I was growing up. Our little munchkins enjoy both so we thought it would make a delightful treat. Zori has a very delightful smile if she sees yummy foods like chocolate, or biscuits or even spicy sausages. We call it her food smile. You can see it here as she puts chocolate in the banana (she did have a cheeky lick before putting in into the bananas!)
You should never leave a bag of marsh mallows with a four year old! We were so focused on other things and then I looked over at Munashe and his expression looked as if he’d had a bit too much of the sweet stuff. He claims he only ate three!
Back to the banana’s and chocolate. A whole lot of guess work was going on here. They tasted yummy but could have done with some dollops of cream! To be honest our little munchkins devoured the melted chocolate and didn’t touch the bananas!
Excitement was had but after all that naughty sugar will the munchkins sleep?

I’ve never heard of barbecued bananas and chocolate. Is this a UK thing? I assume you’re based in the UK due to your use of the word “cheeky”. Sounds amazing!
Yes we are in the UK. I’m not sure if the banana and chocolate thing is a UK phenomena or a my parents phenomena?! You should definitely try it. 🙂

Oh I do love campfires too! Would love to be able to do one again with my daughter before it gets too cold outside 😉 Your little ones are adorable 🙂 #countrykids
Awwww thanks. Hope you get chance for a campfire again soon 🙂
Cooking outdoors on a fire is always special, I love the smell of the fire and the fun of poking sticks in, it is great for kids and a lovely way to learn the joy and danger of fire. Chocolate bananas are a favourite here too! Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids
I love a good campfire. I hope to get better at the whole outdoor cooking thing 🙂
