Dessert is necessity when camping. This is where this Dutch Oven Seven Layer Brownie recipe comes in. Camping is all about experience and nature and is there a better way to experience nature with some amazing dessert. What makes this recipe great is that it is easy to make and it doesn’t take a great amount of time.

Instead you make a dessert from time to time to give everyone some energy and sweeten the experience.
