Campfire Chocolate Éclairs

These campfire chocolate éclairs aren’t much more work than s’mores, but they’re a lot more fun, and they’re easy enough for kids to make.

  • Method: Campfire
  • Cuisine: French


1 can crescent roll dough
1 package instant vanilla pudding
1 tub chocolate frosting (or this homemade chocolate frosting)


Cover the end of a one-inch diameter stick or wooden dowel with aluminum foil, and coat with cooking spray.

Wrap a crescent roll, around the foil. Squeeze the top end of the roll shut, so it’ll hold fillings in later.

Cook your crescent roll over the campfire. Keep it rotating and away from the flames, so it doesn’t burn.

Use the milk and pudding mix to make a batch of vanilla pudding. Then, use it to fill the center of your éclair.

Finish by icing the top with chocolate frosting. Then, scarf your éclair, and make another.


One can of crescent dough makes eight campfire éclairs, or enough for four campers to have two éclairs each. Add another can of crescent dough for every four campers.
