    majorkwoods's Note:

    This is a favorite of my Boy Scouts that graduated as Eagle Scouts from BSA Troop 47, Littleton, Colorado when I was their Scoutmaster. We challenged the Scouts to do one “gourmet” dish for each campout, and this was my “example” entry to spur them on to doing more than just beans and weenies. They got the idea quickly and not only changed what they were cooking [for the better] but how they prepared and cleaned up their creations. I have one Eagle Scout that is now an award winning chef working in NYC, largely because of his experiences while camping and earning the BSA Cooking Merit Badge.

      This was a different way to make them but sure still is good and clean up is easier. I made as directed except I used real rum and then served over a scoop of vanilla ice cream since I wasn't camping. Thanks Major for another great recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2008 and A taste of yellow for Livestrong Day in the photo forum.

      This was so fun to make and it tasted great. Everyone loved it! Of course I was the hero of the day for making something so "gourmet" while we were roughing it! I used a homemade poundcake and served with ready whipped cream in a can rather than the whipped topping in a tub. We will be having this on our next campout due to popular demand! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
