Easy DIY Backyard Glamping


Glamping isn’t Complete without Great Food

We couldn’t use standard camp fare for a glamping experience. Hot dogs wouldn’t do. We set up camp with our grill and packed the ingredients for S’mores. With a twist.

S’more Pies

My husband doesn’t like traditional S’mores so I decided to make a S’more pie in my pie irons and they turned out yummy!

S’more Pie Glamping Style

S'more Pie with caramel and raspberries

This is what you’ll need:
Honey Maid graham crackers
Mini Hershey’s Chocolate Bars or chocolate chips
Caramel Sauce
Refrigerated Pie Crust
Cooking spray
Pie Irons

Optional Topping:
Frozen Raspberries drizzled in Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar
Whip Cream

Making S'more Pies in a Pie Iron while glamping.

  1. Spray the pie irons and place ½ of a refrigerated pie crust inside the pie iron, allowing plenty of room around the edges to cover your pie.
  2. Layer graham crackers on the pie crust.
  3. Add chocolate and mini-marshmallows.
  4. Drizzle with caramel.

top with caramel
5. Cover the contents with pie crust and close in the pie iron.
6. Place the pie iron directly on the grill and close the lid.

Cooking in the pie irons

7. Cook on low heat, turning periodically for approximately 15 minutes. Cooking times may vary.
8. Top with raspberries, more caramel drizzled across the top of the pie and add whip cream.
9. Serve warm.

Backyard Glamping is so much fun. And nothing beats making memories at home.

How did you waterproof it?

This was only temporary so it was not waterproofed. There is a spray that you can purchase but I don't think it waterproofs it entirely. There is also waterproof fabric that you could use instead.

Did you leave this up all seasons? I was wondering how you stored the drop cloths and if you left the frame standing or disassembled it when not using for an extended period. Your glamping tent is beautiful!! Thanks!

Thank you, Suzanne! We only had our glamping tent up for a few weeks and in the dry season so we didn't have to worry about rain, etc. Sadly, when we didn't build it to be reassembled, although it could have been easily. We enjoyed it so much!

Love it. Im in the process of trying to make one for my backyard and was wondering how many canvas cloths did you purchase to cover the whole thing?

It really depends on how large your tent is. I bought four drop cloths. Two were really large but I don't remember the exact dimensions. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

I have never been camping let alone glamping. If I had to do it I would want the air bed and mattress topper.

I've never camped without an air mattress. That's a must for me! Protection Status
