In camp

➞ Pour brownie mix and spices into a nonstick pan; slowly stir in water until you get a batter that’s thin enough to easily pour off your spoon. Stir in oil. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until batter gets thick and fudgey and starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Fold in almonds. Eat with a spoon.
