    Method two:

    What you’ll need:

    • 140g plain flour
    • 100g butter (room temp)
    • 175g soft brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons whole milk
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • Ice cream
    • Toppings: chocolate chips, break pieces of your favourite chocolate bar, mini Oreos, fresh strawberries

    How to make this easy camping dessert:

    This method requires a little more baking. First, beat the butter and sugar. Then add vanilla extract, ½ teaspoon of salt and flour. Fold the mixture together until you get a breadcrumb consistency. Once you’ve achieved this, slowly add the milk and mix until it forms a dough – here, you can add chocolate chips. Place the batter onto a tray and on a bbq or campfire for a minute just to warm it up. Add your toppings and serve with ice cream.
