By David Draper
With all the hearty things you can cook up in camp, it might be easy to forget about a sweet treat to cap off your fireside feast. But desserts needn’t be an afterthought, says Steve McGrath, Camp Chef marketing manager (campchef.com), who serves up these delicious, and easy, dessert ideas.
Pour prepared muffin mix into half of a hollowed-out orange. Place the other empty half over the top, wrap everything tightly in tinfoil, and bake directly in a bed of hot coals for 10 to 15 minutes.
