Family Camping: Super Easy Orange Roll Recipe

This is one of my all-time favorite camping treat and it's SO easy to make over a campfire.

You'll need:

Aluminum foil
1 Fresh Orange Med. to Lg. for each person
2 Refrigerated or Frozen; pre-made Cinnamon Rolls per person (Pillsbury is a great brand, but I would not recommend buying the orange flavored variety, unless you really, really like orange flavored cinnamon rolls)
Butter or Margarine

Cut each orange in half and scrape out the meat, leaving the peel intact, so it forms a bowl. Place one cinnamon roll in each orange peel half and add a small amount of butter to the top of one roll in each orange. Place together and wrap in tin foil. (I usually wrap it twice to prevent burning.) Set down in the glowing embers of your campfire. (Let the fire burn down to embers only, lame is not good for these). Allow to sit in the embers for 7 - 10 minutes, turning half way once during cooking. Pull them out of the fire and allow to cool for a few minutes before opening. Once cooled, remove the tin foil and add the icing from the package. ENJOY!

As a side note: I will usually reserve the meat from the orange, add a teaspoon or two of sugar and squish into a yummy orange juice. (Pampered Chef pitchers come in really handy for this)
