To make this great dessert you need tortilla wraps, pie filling in flavors of strawberry, cherry, blueberry, or apple, peanut butter, small marshmallows, chocolate chips, and heavy-duty aluminum foil. First, place two sheets of foil down. You’ll need enough to cover your tortilla wrap. Next, lay the tortilla down like you are going to make a burrito on top of the foil. Start spreading the pie filling of your choice on to the tortilla. Then sprinkle a few small marshmallows and chocolate chips on top if you like. Finally, wrap it up like a burrito so that the filling doesn’t come out either end and cover it with foil. Place onto coals or indirect heat of the fire for 10 minutes or until all the ingredients are baked. Unwrap and enjoy.
Apples on the Fire

Then lightly sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, and top with Caramel sauce if you’d like. Wrap the apple up in foil and broil over coals or indirect heat on the fire. Leave the apples on about 15 to 20 mins depending on how soft you’d like the apples. Remove the foil and then serve.
