4 Delicious Desserts You Can Make Over Your Fire Pit

You just finished a nice, relaxing meal with your family on the patio, and now you are craving some dessert. Nothing will complete your evening better than fresh treats made straight from your fire pit. Whether you have a coal, wood-burning, or propane fire pit, these scrumptious goodies will satisfy your sweet tooth and your desire to stay outdoors as long as possible.


It’s safe to say that 99.9% of people think of s’mores when trying to come up with a dessert to make over an open fire. It’s a classic treat that is delicious and easy to make. This time, instead of keeping it basic, switch up your chocolate source. Upgrade to some fine Belgian chocolate for a decadent treat, or opt for a peanut butter cup or caramel-filled chocolate for a unique and addictive taste.

Banana Boat

This tasty treat even includes a serving of fruit, gaining you some bonus points. It’s super easy, too. Start with a piece of foil, and then place a banana on top of it. Slice the banana lengthwise and then have each person fill their banana full of whatever they desire—some popular options are marshmallows, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips. Wrap the foil completely around the banana and fillings and let it melt over your fire pit to perfection.

Cinnamon Twist

If you love Elephant Ears at the fair, then you will love this cinnamon sugar scrumptiousness. Start with some canned biscuits and wrap the dough in a spiral around a stick. You will want to make the dough about the width of a finger so it will cook through before the outside burns. Once the dough is cooked, roll it in a dab of butter and sprinkle it with a cinnamon/sugar mix. Yummy!

Sweet Popcorn

Popcorn made over your fire pit is so easy, and the smell is sure to make the neighbors jealous. With this dessert, you can go either sweet or savory. For both options, you will want to start with a large square piece of foil (18 inches per side works well). Next, place in one teaspoon of oil and one tablespoon of popcorn. If you are going for sweet, you will then want to add in a dash of sugar to taste. Now, bring up the corners to make a pouch for the popcorn to pop in and seal the edges. Then, take the popcorn pouch and tie it to a stick. Hold it over the fire while shaking constantly until the popcorn is all popped. If you added the sugar, your sweet popcorn is ready to go. If you wanted savory, you simply need to add salt and butter to your liking and enjoy.

We bet your mouth is watering just reading these delicious recipes. As you can see, a fire pit is a lot more than a decorative way to spruce up your patio. It’s a way to create delectable food while building lasting memories. Visit Porch & Patio today to find a fire pit that is perfect for you.
