RV Camping Dessert Recipes
S’mores are a classic and honestly, a camping trip is not complete without devouring one, or five. While you could most definitely take the standard route, we got a little bit creative.

Once the marshmallow is ready, push into the bacon and chocolate with on the graham cracker so the marshmallow melts the chocolate
