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


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
