Trail brownie in a bag

Trail brownies in a bag, are a tasty treat to have every once in a while.. Not the greatest thing to look at in the bag, but I’m not that fussy to care.

1 pkt graham crackers
1⁄4 c diced toasted pecans
2 T powdered sugar
3⁄4 c chocolate chips
3 T dry milk
At home, crush the graham crackers into crumbs, pack in a sandwich bag with the pecans and sugar. Put the chocolate chips and milk in a quart freezer bag.
In camp, Add ¼ cup water to the chocolate bag. Bring a small pot of water to a gentle simmer (warm). Turn off the heat. Dip the tightly sealed chocolate bag to melt the chocolate. When melted, add the graham cracker crumb bag to the chocolate bag and knead to mix thoroughly. Eat warm with long handled spoons or let it cool and break into chunks.  I find letting it cool to be the best option.

Serves 2-4.

Notes: Less water, more powder milk = firmer result – more like a chocolate bar.
1 packet is 1 “sleeve” of graham crackers. You can substitute in other dry cookies as well, you will need about 1¼ cups crushed cookies.


I smooth it out to roughly 1/4″ flat in the bag and toss it in the cooler for a while… gives a great chocolate bar feel/texture to it as pictured above.
