While Brownies from the Box are likely to turn out great, this scratch-made recipe will not only leave you proud of your baking skills but eager to do it again.

Satisfy your sweet tooth on your next camping trip with our campfire brownies recipe! Gooey, chocolatey goodness made right over the fire. Perfect for an evening treat with friends and family.

As opposed to a plain brownie, we opt to mix in nuts for the added texture and chocolate chips for the melty sweetness. Be creative with the add-ins you prefer. Not a walnut person? Try toasted coconut and almonds. Looking for a nut-free brownie, try Pretzel pieces and caramel M&Ms. Want a brownie for the holiday’s? Try crushed peppermint candies and Oreos.
