See how easy it is to make Dutch Oven Brownies on your next camping trip.
Before our last camping trip, we were trying to decide which Dutch oven recipes to make. We camped with friends of ours and took turns making meals.
Our camping buddies grilled ribeye steaks for all of us. We had them with Instant Pot Mashed Garlic Potatoes. The meal was FANTASTIC!
For our night, we made our Dutch Oven Chicken & Vegetables with thighs, sweet potato, red onion, carrot, bell peppers, garlic, and mushrooms. We made this Dutch oven brownie recipe for dessert.
We bake them at the same time by stacking the Dutch ovens. Both took an hour to bake.
Dutch Oven Brownies Recipe
We really like to make easy recipes. We have made Dutch oven dump cake and chocolate cake using a cake mix and a soda. This recipe was an experiment to see if the same technique would work with a brownie mix.
This brownie recipe only requires three ingredients. You could skip the chocolate chips, but your brownies will be much more cake like and not fudgy. You could also try other brownie mix add-ins such as candy or mini marshmallows.
What to add to brownie mix?
We added a dark-colored soda pop to our brownie mix. When we mixed the brownie mix and a can of soda together, it was very watery. Usually, brownie batter is very thick and cake batter is thinner, but this was practically pure liquid.
Years ago, Diana made this eggless brownie recipe at home, but only used half of a can of soda. We used the entire can for this brownie batter without thinking. It really blew our minds that this recipe worked.
Since we already had the batter prepped, we thought we might as well try to bake it and see what happens.
We lined the Dutch oven with a liner. Get them here or make your own. Pour the liquid brownie batter into the Dutch oven liner. Then we dumped then the entire bag of the chocolate chips into the middle of the batter. We decided to leave them piled like that because it pushed the batter out and we figured it would bake the brownies like a Bundt pan.
Our guess was that this campfire brownie recipe going was going to turn out to be chocolate soup, but we got to eat the dessert, not splurp it.
As with most of our Dutch oven cooking, we used our noses to determine whether the baking is done. Once we started smelling chocolate, we knew it was time to check the pot.
We were quite surprised when we lifted the lid and found a very tall Dutch brownie cake. Our brownie mix recipe experiment was a success!
When we cut into the brownies we found the bottom to be very fudgy, especially toward the middle.
