    Bread or Potatoes


    If the night is already very dark and your fire is almost dead, there is still an incredible snack to enjoy.

    Buy a French camembert cheese in a wood box. With a fork, prick it at different places. Roll your camembert and its box into aluminum one or two times. Place into the embers for 10 minutes and it is done! Note: embers must be still warm but not burning.
