Best Brownies

Best Brownies

Everyone loves brownies.  But when was the last time you had one on a camping trip?  Not much goes better with a mug of cocoa or tea around a campfire.  Whether you make them ahead of time or bring a Dutch oven and cook them right over the campfire, you can't beat the rich, chocolate-y taste of brownies.

These brownies cook for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.


1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons butter, softened
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup chocolate or butterscotch chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners' sugar

Preheat the oven or nestle the Dutch oven into hot coals.  If you're cooking at home, grease an 8-inch square brownie pan.

In a large pot, melt the butter. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in the cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into the pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook. While the brownies are baking, make the frosting by combining all of the frosting ingredients and blending. Frost brownies while they are still warm. Sprinkle chocolate or butterscotch chips over the top.

Summer Sandwiches

Summer Sandwiches

Summertime and sandwiches go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Whether you're planning a tasty lunch at your campsite or are prepping a hot sandwich meal for dinner, sandwiches make the perfect camping food.  You won't even need to dirty any plates!  

Savory Egg Salad Sandwiches

8 whole wheat hoagie rolls
6-8 Large Hard Boiled Eggs
1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon mustard
Pinch Of Salt
1/2 teaspoon Fresh Cracked Pepper

For a fun twist on your egg salad sandwich, consider toasting the bun or adding fresh herbs like chopped chives or cilantro.  Chop the eggs into the sized pieces you want, then use a fork to blend gently with the mayonnaise and mustard.  Season with salt and pepper, then spoon onto rolls.

Italian Hoagie

Spread the Dijonnaise (a blend of mayonnaise and Dijon mustard) on the bottom half of each Italian roll. Layer on the deli style salami, prosciutto, ham, and cheese. Top with 2 lettuce leaves and 4 slices of tomato. Sprinkle on chopped black olives and peperoncino peppers. Close the sandwich and cut into even parts.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

These classic hot sandwiches are filling - but messy!  Be sure to serve these with plates and forks.  As a one-pot meal, Sloppy Joes make a great camping dinner or lunch.
