Combine all ingredients into one of the bags and seal it up. Place the filled Ziploc® bag into the other bag. Pass it around to all of your campers so that they can squish the contents until it is all mixed thoroughly then enjoy. Camping Tip: Measure all the dry ingredients into a Ziploc® bag at home. At camp, just add cream cheese and butter.

Tips for cooking with Ziploc bags:

1. Pre-mix at home as much as you can to save time measuring at camp. And save packing space as you don't have to pack more than you need.

2. Be gentle when squishing or mixing bag contents. You don't want to break it. If you've got some really rough kids, double the bags, to prevent a mess, yes, but more importantly, so they don't lose their breakfast or meals, or dinner.

3. Ziploc® company does not recommend that their bags be boiled or used with high heat for cooking as they will start to melt which can cause many hazards. Their bags are made from polyethylene plastic which has a softening point of 195 degrees and water has a boiling point of 212 degrees. Fat (such as the fat found in eggs and cheese) will heat quicker and get hotter then water) will melt the bags very quickly.
