I wish I could say I was a camper. I wish I could say the draw of nature was so appealing that I would want to spend a night under the stars with only a sleeping bag and my husband. Unfortunately, I hate bugs, the damp smell of the tent/sleeping bag in the morning and dirt! Yep, I am so not a camper. When I was younger, camping was a dream come true! Fun, freedom and nature! Now, I see mess, bug bites and extra chores.
That being said I won’t let my children miss the chance to make amazing memories and experience the ‘joy’ that so many other people find. I’ve been camping a few times with my children. In order for this to work I had to revamped my view of camping and made it Glamping! I sleep in the back of the mini van with a cushion, I invested in a lot of bug spray, and I chose locations that were close to towns in case I needed to get away from it all!
One thing I do love about camping is the hot days and cool nights. There is something magical about sitting around the campfire, while your cellphone is dead, enjoying friends and family. Today, I’m going to share a version of my Glamping fire side drink!! A #VanHouteespecialty!
1. Prepare the Vanilla Latte according to instructions on package.
2. Add the chocolate spread and stir well
3. Add marshmallows, top with graham crackers and enjoy over a crackling camp fire!
