Recipe by rysharen

My oldest son is a Boy Scout and made this on a camping trip. It's winter here right now but I decided I'd make something close to bake in the oven.

These are so awesome! I've made them since I was a girl, and when our sons were little, we made them when we went camping. There are many different ways to vary this recipe if one so chooses, as well. Thanks for posting!
