Yield: 1 Servings

Hershey bars
Graham crackers
Green sticks or coat

Get prepared by getting 1 large graham cracker and breaking it in half. Cover 1/2 of the graham cracker with Hershey bar.
Put a marshmallow (or 2) on the stick and hold it over the fire until roasted. Some people like them lightly golden, others like to catch them on fire and then blow the fire out. If you do that, be careful.
You have to put the fire out quickly or your marshmallow will fall on the ground. When the marshmallow's roasted, place on top of the Hershey bar, put the other graham cracker on top and bite down. Yum!

Yield: 1 servings

1 Orange or Grapefruit
1 large egg
2 tb milk
sugar & cinnamon to taste

Grilled Orange Egg Custard

With the navel at the bottom, slice off the top of the orange & dig out all the pulp and fruit (to eat!!)... save the "orange cup"... in fact, serve oranges during dinner & get evryone to save their orange cups for this.
Crack egg into a bowl with the milk, sugar & cinnamon and gently whisk it a little with a fork, but don't over mix, you want the lumps of smooth egg white when it's cooked.
Place egg mixture in the orange cup & place them over a grilling stand over EMBERS (not the fire).. wait till egg looks cooked, but not hard. Eat!
