4th of July Weekend

We had such a fun weekend. We took the trailer and went camping on Cedar Mountain. We went fishing, rode 4-wheelers, shot our bows, ate lots of yummy dutch oven food, relaxed & played cards. The weather was beautiful! We drove down to Cedar City to eat dinner and watch the fire works. Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!

Kevin made this yummy Dutch Oven Chocolate Cake. Here is the recipe - you really should try it!! (I think next time we will try it with toffee chips, or peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips (or mabey just both)).

1 1/2 cup water
1 (10 oz.) bag miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 chocolate cake mix; prepared as directed
1 cup light brown sugar
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Line the bottom and sides of a 12" Dutch oven with heavy foil. Mix the water, cocoa powder, and brown sugar together and pour into the Dutch oven. Add marshmallows and spread them out evenly. Pour prepared chocolate cake mix over marshmallows. Sprinkle chocolate chips over cake batter.

Cover oven and bake using 8-10 briquettes bottom and 14-16 briquettes top for 60 minutes.

Serve warm with whipped cream.
