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.
