Fruit Packets Recipe
These fruit packets are a fun way to serve dessert on a camping trip or at your next cook-out. Each foil packet serves two people – make them smaller if you want each person to create their own fruit packet.
- Heavy duty aluminum foil
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 4 medium peaches, nectarines, or a combination, pitted and sliced
- 2 plums, pitted and sliced
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- Crumbled Metropolitan Market Triple Ginger Cookies
- Preheat oven to 400° F. (Or preheat grill.)
- Cut 4 pieces of foil, each a 12-inch square.
- Put fruit slices in center of each square. Top each with 1 Tbsp butter, cut-up. Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup marshmallows; you may add other toppings, as you like. Bring up two opposite sides of one foil square and fold together over fruit. Place packets on two large baking sheets.
- Bake or place on grill over a hot fire for 10 minutes, until packets puff, fruit is hot and gives off juices, and marshmallows melt.
- Place packets on small plates. Carefully open each packet and enjoy. Serve with pound cake, cookies, or over ice cream, if you like.
- Cook’s Tip:
- Sprinkle fruit with ground cinnamon or cinnamon-sugar before topping with butter and marshmallows.
- Vary with Berries: Replace plums with a handful of blueberries or raspberries. Or make a mixed, all-berry blend with a variety of berries (slice or halve strawberries if using).
- Adult Treat: Add a tablespoon of your favorite fruit liqueur or brandy before folding packets.
