  • Campfire


  • 8 oranges cut in half and cleaned out
  • 1 batch muffins


  • Cut each orange in half and scoop out the fruit {don't waste it! Eat it!}
  • Prepare a batch of muffins - here's where those box mixes come in handy!
  • fill half of the orange peels with muffin mix, replace the other {empty} half and wrap the sphere in foil.
  • Repeat until you have eight foil wrapped peels.
  • Put the foil wrapped, muffin mixed filled peels in the the fire and try to surround them with coals - carefully!
  • After 15 minutes, CAREFULLY pull them out of the fire and allow to cool.
  • Carefully open the foil, being mindful of steam, and enjoy the amazing muffins inside!


Bella added fresh blueberries to her muffins, which was delightful! Chocolate chips would be another great option.
