Introduction: Campfire Biscuit Treat Sticks

Want to make fun treats any time while camping or at a backyard fire pit gathering? Wrap store bought biscuit dough around wooden sticks, roast them over a fire and fill them with you favorite dessert fillings and top them off with a bit of whipped cream.

All you need to make these treats is a wooden campfire biscuit treat stick, which I'll show you how to make in this instructable.

Step 1: Materails Needed

1 1/4″ x 48" round dowel – (makes 15 3-inch long pieces)

3/8″ x 36″ round dowel – need one for each stick

Wood glue

Drill and bits

Sander

Step 2: Stick Construction

Cut the 1 1/4″ round dowel into 3″ lengths

Lightly sand (bevel) the 3″ dowel pieces to remove and rough areas, and slightly round the edges

* I used a hand-held sander

Drill a 3/8″ hole in the center of the 3″ dowel piece about 2" deep

* I use a small drill press

Put a dab of wood glue in the drilled hole

Lightly coat the 3/8″ dowel with wood glue and slide it into the hole

Wipe off any excess wood glue

Allow the glue to dry over night

Step 3: Before Using Sticks

Before using your sticks for the first time, soak the big end of the stick in cooking oil for a few hours.

Spray big stick end with cooking spray between biscuit roastings

Step 4: Ingredients Needed for Campfire Biscuit Treats

Pillsbury Grand Jr refrigerator biscuits. Do not use Grand biscuits

Pudding (Vanilla, Chocolate, Butterscotch, etc)

Fruit Pie Filling

Whipping cream

You can also use these delicious roasted biscuits to make campfire breakfast and dinner. Fill your roasted biscuit with:

Taco meat, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese

Ham and cheese

Chili, tomatoes and cheese

Sausage and scrambled eggs

Step 5: How to Make Campfire Biscuit Treats

Stretch biscuit over the big end of the stick

Step 6: Roasting

Roast biscuits over a fire until the outside is golden brown. To achieve a nice golden color and a more even cooking result, cook them directly over hot coals and not over a direct flame. I find that a direct flame burns the outside and leaves the inside somewhat raw.

Step 7: Ta-Da

Remove biscuit from the stick and fill with your favorite fillings

The recipes and concoctions are endless so get creative

I want to try this

a few questions, if i may? do you think the glue is absolutely necessary if the fit is tight enough? i am impatient and dont want to wait overnight for it to dry before soaking in oil. also, do you think a 24 inch handle would work? i dont know if one would be too close to the fire with the shorter stick. (we are going camping this weekend so i am making these.)
thanks everybody for all the good filling suggestions too!

Hi Beljar4, If the fit is tight enough I bet they would be just fine without the glue. When I drilled mine, some were a bit loss and they needed glue. I'm thinking it would be okay to soak them in the oil without waiting for the glue to dry overnight. I used longer sticks because the coals get pretty hot and so do my hands, even with the longer sticks. Sometimes we wear gloves. Please let me know how yours turn out and how much fun you have with them :)

we made them! they were really good. we love biscuits with butter and honey so we did that. putting them on the stick takes a little practice but we managed. thanks again!

also, the 3 foot length is perfect.

Fabulous. I'm glad you enjoyed them. Honey and butter sounds delicious. We're going to make these at Easter and I'm going to try the butter and honey along with roasted Peeps

These look delicious - they're very similar to a traditional Australian bread called Damper. Damper is generally made from a flour and water dough, and you can use baking powder (or SR flour) if you want it to rise.

You can make a big damper by forming the dough into a cob and bake it directly in the hot coals of a campfire (breaking off the charred outside crust to eat the soft interior) or wrap the dough around the end of a stick and cook it in a fire like this.

We used to make damper over the campfire on the ends of sticks whenever we went camping - the dough is very easy to make and when it's cooked, you can put all sorts of things down the middle (butter and golden syrup or honey was a favourite!)

Wow ! Damper sounds delicious. I'm defiantly going to make some. Thanks for sharing a link :)
