Ever wonder how to make those yummy camp snacks when you are not at camp? Here are two simple ones to try when you are home.

GORP

“GORP” stands for “Good Ole Raisins and Peanuts.” To make this yummy camp snack at home, mix the following ingredients together. It’s easy!

  • 1 cup of M & M’s
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1 cup of peanuts
  • other dried fruits (optional)
  • other dried nuts (optional)

S’mores

Get an adult to help you with this one. Usually S’mores require a campfire to roast the marshmellow and melt the chocolate a bit, but at home you can assemble the S’mores, place them on a plate and very briefly microwave them.

Here’s what you’ll need.

  • 2 graham crackers
  • 1 large marshmallow
  • a few chocolate chips or half of a Hershey bar
  • a microwave oven safe plate

Place the marshmallow and chocolate inside the two graham crackers (like a sandwich) and place it on the plate. Microwave for only a few seconds– perhaps 20 or so. Be careful! It’ll be hot, but you’ll have a melted gooey treat!!!
