A couple of weekends ago we packed up and headed to to the hills of beautiful Colorado. We are certainly blessed with a family cabin and like to use it for a great weekend getaway as much as possible. We decided to go for Jeremy’s birthday weekend and it was a great time for everyone.
Jude was even successful with the fishing pole this visit! Go Jude!! We are lucky that both Jude and Teagan love the outdoors. It makes these getaways so much fun. Dirt, fishing and mountain air! Perfect!!
We have a few traditions when heading to the cabin and one of those is roasting marshmallows over the fire to make yummy S’mores. Jude adores this tradition and so do I! S’mores are one of my favorite treats when sitting by the campfire. Now most of you know that I am on my last Weight Loss Journey right? Well this trip the cabin was a challenge, especially when it was S’more time. I didn’t want to deprive myself of one of my favorite treats but knew I could make the gooey treat a bit healthier for me. I decided to create a Campfire Peachie Treat instead. They are so yummy and super easy too. I think this could become our new campfire tradition at the cabin too!

Peaches, ripe but not TOO ripe
Brown Sugar (optional)
1. Build a campfire. 😉 Obvious I know!
2. Cut each peach into halves and remove the pit. Leave the skin on.
3. On a piece of foil lay two of the peach halves insides up. Sprinkle each half with some cinnamon and if you would like some brown sugar.
4. Place one large marshmallow on one half of the peach and top the marshmallow with the second half. Wrap the peach in the foil tightly. Do this for the number of peachies you would like. Make sure you wrap each peach separately.
5. Place wrapped peaches directly into the campfire. Let them cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove carefully!! The foil is hot so be cautious!
6. Unwrap the peachies and enjoy!
The Campfire Peachies are delicious! The marshmallow creates some sweetness with the cinnamon and the peach becomes cobbler soft! So good! I was still able to enjoy a melted marshmallow but instead of a graham cracker and chocolate I enjoyed a juicy mountain fruit! Peaches in the summer at the cabin equals pure bliss!
Do you have any traditional food recipes that you have to have when you go camping?
These look so tasty! Kyle does NOT like peaches but we'll have to try this sometime – even if its just on the grill! I love Jude's face with the fish too – so much fun!
Oh yum! Those look so good! I definitely have to try to make campfire peaches on our next camping trip. I love s'mores, but it's so nice to have a healthier alternative for over the campfire.

Oh my! We are so making this next time we head up north, which is in 2 weeks!

What!?! I have NEVER heard of these before! I think you have just changed my life forever!
They really look mouthwatering, and it's as if I can smell them by just looking at those photos.

We're boring…we just do S'mores. Those peaches look delicious. The picture of your son holding the fish is priceless – very cute.
