Campfire Tarts

Let me paint you a picture…

It’s a nice, {slightly chilly} fall evening, and the sun is just about to set off in the distance.

You have a group of family and friends coming over and you are looking for a fun way to entertain them on this gorgeous night.

Then it hits you! Campfire Tarts!

You light up the fire-pit, crack open a few cans of pie filling, set out some whip cream and grab those ever-handy canned biscuits.

Tonight it is all about friends, family, and good food. All while enjoying the comforting warmth of the crackling fire. You are sure to be labeled the hostess with the mostess!

Who needs S’mores when you have these amazing Tart Makers from Tarts On Fire? With the stainless steel cup that screws onto the wooden handled, stainless steel rod, these Tart Makers are a first class campfire treat.

You’ve probably never seen anything like this before.

It’s the brain child of my husband’s best friend. This guy means so much to us, he is practically family. He was my husband’s best man in our wedding! So when I begged he asked me to review and give away a set of these Tart Makers on my blog, of course I jumped at the chance.

We are a huge camping family. With so many children, it’s practically all we can afford at times. These Tart Makers will be in our camping box for many years to come. Not only that, I am super excited to have friends over this Fall to enjoy these in our new fire-pit!

When we tried them out I just opened a few cans of pie filling, along with some toasted coconut and nut topping, for filling in the tart shells. Can’t forget some whip cream! And who doesn’t love chocolate syrup and caramel sauce?

These are so simple to assemble. Just take a small biscuit and mold it around the upside-down stainless steel cup.

Just like you would a marshmallow, slowly roast the biscuit over the fire.

What is so nice about these Tart Makers is that the thin, but sturdy, stainless steel cup is hollow and a great conductor of heat. So the insides of the tarts get cooked evenly and you’re not left with raw dough on the inside.

Check out those tarts! The kids totally and completely loved these.

I am talking, IN. LOVE.

It’s still over 100 degrees outside here, and these kiddos had no quarries about sitting by a fire to roast some canned biscuits!

Want to know what’s even cooler? These Tart Makers are not just a one-trick-pony!

The stainless steel cup can be screwed off, and the stick becomes the perfect marshmallow roaster or hot dog cooker!

Pure Genius!

The options for filling these one-of-a-kind tart shells are endless as well.

Let your mind wander into the realms of savory if you will…

I’m thinking a big pot of chili, with all the fixin’s on the side. Spoon it into a warm tart shell…blissful!

What about some macaroni and cheese tartlets for the kids? Yup- incredible!

I know what you’re thinking… the sweets are good too!

And I bet you’re just dying to get some for your family right!??!

    Hi! Love this idea! I am a Park Interpreter Naturalist at Grahams Island State Park in North Dakota. This weekend I am putting on a program called “Campfire Cravings” and would love to share this recipe and maybe some of the pictures with the group! So is it ok if I go ahead and share this idea? I will need written consent if so, if not, totally understandable! Thank you for having a creative mind 🙂 Can’t wait to explore your page a bit more!

  2. I think this is such a great idea!! I have introduced smores to most of my son’s friends here in Germany and they love them but this takes the cake literally. Kids love grilling and filling cups!!
    I know I would pout out Nutella, whipped cream and fruits – my son would add fresh mando to his Nutella filling.
    Greetings from Frankfurt to all!!

    Breakfast/brunch…sausage, egg and cheese or maybe bacon and maple syrup or a nice Italian meatball with sauce…I would spend all my time just making different combos with these!!
