No, you don't cook it over the camp fire... I wondered that myself when I first heard of it!
But you can easily make it while sitting around the camp fire. Thanks to Karen and Roy Munzel of Michigan for sharing this recipe; I believe Karen herself came up with the recipe. It only takes 5 minutes or so to make!
To a gallon ziplock bag, add:
- 3.5 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 stick butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2/3 cup to 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (Karen says "a heaping half-cup")
- 1 small jar marshmallow cream (perhaps 6 oz. or thereabouts?)
- (optional): your choice of any nuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or whatever you like
Place all ingredients inside ziplock bag and zip closed. Knead the bag (feel free to pass around to all at the camp fire for turns) until ingredients look mixed; usually that's when it no longer sticks to the sides of the bag. Dump onto a plate, flatten, carve into chunks, and eat.
I am looking forward to making this with the grandkids one day soon.
