Ingredients

  • 10

    oranges

  • 1

    recipe chocolate cake batter, prepared in advance (box mix is fine)

Directions

Cut the tops off the oranges and scoop out the pulp. Fill the oranges three-quarters of the way with the chocolate cake batter (or cake mix) of your choice, then put the orange tops back on and wrap each orange in aluminum foil. Place directly onto the smoldering coals of the campfire, avoiding any intense flames, and cook for about 30 minutes, turning once or twice.
