Campfire Chocolate Orange Muffins

This is a recipe we tested a couple of summers ago and I can attest to the workability of this recipe. Feel free to use any flavour of muffin mix desired.

You will need four oranges and a box of chocolate chip muffin mix (or the flavour you desire – blueberry is also nice) plus some heavy aluminum foil.

First, cut off top 1/3 of four oranges and scoop out the insides as best as you can, leaving only the rind. Make up the muffin mix as per the packaging, adding egg and oil and water. Fill the mixture in the 2/3 part of the oranges. Replace the top of the orange. Wrap each in aluminum foil. Place in the hot coals. Turn every few minutes. Cooks in about 10-15 minutes. A marshmallow skewer poked in the mix should come out clean.

Makes 4.
