What makes the best summer bonfires? Campfire cooking. We’re talking beer can chicken, deluxe s’mores and, of course, classicly easy moon pies. This campfire moon pie recipe comes from the Robinson’s family in Walloon Lake.

The Robinsons’ fire pit sees plenty of duty as s’more central, so Cheryl Robinson keeps the cottage larder stocked with the main ingredients plus add-ons like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The family also mixes up the fire pit menu with the fixings for campfire moon pies, toasted over the flames in a cast iron pie iron, available in many outdoor catalogs and stores.

  2. Spread one slice with cream cheese and top with fruit pie filling and pieces of chocolate.
  3. Sandwich-up the slices and grill until toasty in the pie iron.
  4. When finished drizzle with homemade confectioner’s sugar icing (recipe below)
