If you’re the person who likes to prepare new and interesting dishes, then one of the best fireplace desserts to make is Woof ‘Ems. This is a dessert that will please even those with the most insatiable sweet tooth, and everyone at your next party can get involved in the preparation.
As with many fireplace desserts, the main ingredient you’ll need for Woof ‘Ems is refrigerated biscuits. You’ll also need pre-made chocolate pudding and whipped cream for topping. Make sure you have cooking pegs so that you can hold the Woof ‘Ems over the fire, similar to how you would cook a S’more.

When most people think about cooking over an outdoor fireplace, the first dish that comes to their mind is S’mores. While classic-style S’mores are always a treat, you can also make an updated version of this dish by preparing S’More Nachos.
This dish uses the same basic ingredients as regular S’mores – graham crackers, marshmallows, milk chocolate – but instead of cooking the marshmallow on a stick, you’ll cook all the ingredients together in a pan. All you need to do is layer the ingredients, cover the pan with foil and put the pan in your fireplace. In a few minutes, you’ll have a gooey, sweet dessert that both children and adults will enjoy.
