Fluffer Nutter Cookies Recipe: Perfect Camping Dessert for a Sweet Tooth

Finding the perfect cookie to bring camping or going hiking can be difficult. You want something that won’t melt, so anything with chocolate is not an option. You also don’t want it to crumble in your backpack or portable kitchen.

That’s why these fluffier nutter cookies are perfect for camping. They are thick and hearty, with tons of sweetness from marshmallows. They won’t melt in the heat and they can easily be made ahead of time to bring outdoors.
