cooking oil, biscuits or bread dough, and any of several complementary combinations:
peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and peanut butter, marshmallows and chocolate, apple and cheese, caramel and apple, ham and cheese, pizza sauce and sausage, ham and egg, etc.
Camp Stove, Deep Pot, Long-handled tongs or long fork (for removing Darn Goods from pot.)
Heat the oil. While heating, flatten dough balls on the palm of your hand. Place a spoonful of any complementary ingredients in center of flattened dough. Fold edges of dough together and pinch them closed, creating a sealed pocket. Drop the Darn Good pocket into the oil and leave it until it turns brown. Remove, coll, and eat!
CommentThis is a great cooking demo recipe. Let the boys build their own. We sometimes play "Darn Good Roulette" - fill the pot with Darn Goods, but fill one of them with something "undesireable" - like mayonnaise or a moth. Everyone picks one and has to eat it - even the boy who gets the mayo!
Of course - don't put anything in that could hurt someone.
