Decadent Desserts While Camping With Edwards Whole Pies #EdwardsPies #PMedia

In the summertime we like to do more fun activities that we wouldn’t normally do. Like camping. We normally go in the cooler months because here in Florida the high’s are in the upper 90’s and it’s too hot to be in a tent. So when the kids asked if we could go camping this summer and we said not until the cooler months. So instead we thought it would be fun for them to camp inside the house, tent and all! 


If they were going to camp in our living room I was going to try to make it as authentic as possible for them. So I headed to Walmart to pick up some supplies for their dinner and EDWARDS® Whole Pies for dessert. When we actually go camping my husband builds a campfire and we make hot dogs on skewers but that is not possible inside so I came up with something else fun for the kids to eat for dinner.

Sandwiches On A Stick Ingredients:

Deli Lunch Meat / Block Cheese

Grape Tomato’s

Kabob Sticks / Skewers 


First cut different cheeses into thick cubes so that when pushing through the kabob sticks they do not break. Use the cheese at the ends of the sticks. Then take the lunch meat and roll it into a tube, cut it half and then fold it and push it through the stick. Next add the tomato and another block of cheese a tomato, ham and lastly a block of cheese.  It is a fun way to eat a sandwich!  


Fruit Salad On A Stick Ingredients:

Strawberries, Blueberries and Grapes

Kabob Sticks / Skewers 

Wash the fruit prior to adding them to the kabob sticks. 

Both of these recipes are fun for kids to eat, they are on a stick so the clean up is quick. You can prepare them in advance for camping inside or outside of the home! 


Yes the kids loved being in a tent and their dinner but what they looked forward most was the EDWARDS® Pies for dessert.

I chose EDWARDS® Pies for dessert because there is NO baking involved, just simply thaw and serve which is perfect for camping! Plus EDWARDS® Pies have been one of my family’s favorite desserts. There are so many to chose from but the kids picked out EDWARDS® HERSHEY’S® Chocolate Crème Pie and EDWARDS® Turtle Pie.
