This recipe by RebeccaD was posted by sarbar on backpacker.com forums. Figured I would repost it here. Seems like a yummy recipie to try out.

Trail Brownies In A Bag
In a sandwich bag:
1 sleeve graham crackers, reduced to crumbs.
1/4 cup toasted diced pecans
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
In a quart freezer bag:
3 ounces (about 3/4 cup) chocolate chips
3 Tbsp dry milk
In camp:
Add 1/4 cup water to the chocolate bag. Bring a small pot of water to a gentle simmer (warm). Turn off the heat. Dip the tightly sealed chocolate bag to melt the chocolate. When melted, add the graham cracker crumb bag to the chocolate bag and knead to mix thoroughly. Eat warm with long handled spoons or let it cool and break into chunks.
Serves 1-4. Depends on what you consider dessert! If you love dessert then assume it will serve more like 1-2.

I made these No-Bake Powerhouse cookies when i travelled with NOLS:

No-Bake Powerhouse Cookies

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup margarine

3 Tbs. powdered milk

4 Tbs. water

1 cup oatmeal

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup nuts

1/4 cup chocolate or carob chips

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix sugar, margarine, powdered milk and wanter in a pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by spoonfuls onto a flat surface such as a pan lid. Let sit for about 10minutes to set. In hot weather, they might not set well.

Makes 20-24 (4 servings) cookies

Sarbar (Sarah) is a great source for recipes and trail cooking ideas. She is a regular on TLB and has her own website with dozens of free recipes at www.trailcooking.com

One of her specialties is freezer bag cooking, so much of her site is devoted to that. She has a cookbook, but I think virtually everything in the book is available online for free.

One of the great things about her site is that most of the recipes Sarbar posts come with pictures, so you can see what the end result is supposed to look like.

I believe that credit for the recipe, although posted by sarbar, goes to RebeccaD from Backpacker, if I remember correctly.
