Baked campfire apples

Baking apples in the embers on the camp fire.


Ingredients (per six)

6 green apples
3 tbsp butter, softened
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup mixed dried fruit


Core a hole in the top of the apple to fill with the mixture but leave the bottom intact.
Mix the butter, brown sugar and mixed fruit together and fill the hole in each apple.
Double wrap each apple with aluminium foil, making a mark on top so you know which way is up.
Place on the coals for 20-25 mins. Take care when opening.

You need to leave bottoms intact so the filling doesn't run out.
Get an adult to help you with the coreing as it requires a very sharp knife.
You can mix and match any dried fruits you have on hand. I have even done this with trail mix when it was all I had.
