Dutch Oven Choco Cherry Goodness

And yet another dead easy camping recipe, not unlike the Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake I posted about earlier this camping season. Here's how it goes:

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
1 large chocolate bar

Pour pie filling into pie tin and sprinkle cake mix on top evenly. Break chocolate into pieces placing on top. Cook for 35-45 minutes with 12 briquettes on top and 8 below.

I didn't get a picture of it when it was done. It was too dark for a decent shot anyway. The top seemed a bit powdery but I fluffed it all around with a fork and it turned out fine. Fine as in warm, rich, dense chocolate cake, surrounded by sweet cherry goodness. It would have been a bit of heaven if it was visited by a scoop of vanilla ice cream. But that just ain't camping food. Next time I might bring some whipping cream.
