These camping donuts were a huge hit this year. You can certainly make them at anytime, but it just feels right to make donuts while camping. At home, we try to mostly eat non-processed foods, but when we go camping we throw that all out the window. Everything in moderation, right?
I used to make these with my mom growing up. I haven’t made them in years, but thought it would be fun to make them with my son. Well, he was riding his bike around the campsite with his friend. Then when I was done, I asked if he would want to make these with me sometime. He said, maybe he would make them with his friend one day. Not exactly the bonding moment I pictured.
Either way, these donuts have quickly became a camping staple for us. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Rip each biscuit into fours. Roll each piece into a ball.
