This easy recipe for Fudge Made in a Ziplock Bag is one way to keep the kids occupied with a fun activity, especially on a camping trip.

Everyone can get involved in squeezing the ziplock bag full of ingredients until fudge is created without the aid of a stovetop.

Cream cheese is the trick here because it's semi-solid consistency when mixed with confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder and butter helps to create a creamy candy without the need for heat or setting-up time. 

Another fun recipe while camping (or when you don't have an ice cream maker at hand) is Ice Cream in a Ziplock Bag, provided you have access to ice.

  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese
