Campfire Cooking: Cappuccino Monkey Bread

My friends, do you go camping? If you do then you know that there is something so delightful about enjoying scrumptious food when out in the wild. I wish I knew what is was about eating something hot and delicious when camping, but there’s just something about it. Am I right? Because that’s one of the things I look forward to the most when camping, I like to recreate some of our most favorite recipes, campfire style. Our favorite campfire dish for breakfast is this Campfire Cappuccino Monkey Bread.

Now, most people know what monkey bread is. I have been making it for a good 15 years or so and I’m sure you have too. I usually make it from scratch and it’s time-consuming but totally worth it in the end. But when you are camping, it’s all about convenience. So I created a way to make that favorite breakfast recipe with just 5 minutes of prep time and about 20 minutes over the campfire. I decided to jazz it up a bit and include some of my favorite cappuccino mix in salted caramel flavor to the recipe.

You see, last fall the team and I took an 11-day road trip in an RV down the coast of Washington, Oregon and California as part of a business trip for a workshop I was taking. Spending 11 days in an RV as a family of 5 (all of which are adult size) was an adventure. But one of the things that made life easier was having my Hills Bros. Cappuccino Mix on hand. We took the Keurig along with us and I was also able to brew my Hills Bros. Cappuccino in that when I had time. But it was really handy while we were always on the go to have my mix available too.

I could have a delicious cappuccino at a moment’s notice, which I really needed. While I was making my beverage, I made some Campfire Cappuccino Monkey Bread too. Then we just placed them on the grate over the campfire while we warmed up in the morning.

It was so nice to enjoy these with a yummy cup of cappuccino while listening to the waves crash on those chilly mornings. I’m telling you, I could start every single day of my life that way. I love those early mornings by the shore and a campfire. Having a sweet breakfast like the monkey bread was just the icing on the cake.
