Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler!!

I decided today I would share a dutch oven recipe!! We LOVE dutch oven food and believe a dutch oven is an essential camping item! The possibilites are endless!! We happen to be going camping tonight and will be making one of our favorite treats! Dutch oven peach cobbler!! For those of you who don't know what a dutch oven is, see the picture below!
It is a cast iron dish. To cook with it, you heat up coals and once they are hot, you put the dish in the campfire above the coals, but not directly on them. Then you place more hot coals on the lid for an even cook!
The peach cobbler is so easy! Wait for it....
2 boxes of white cake mix
6 cans sliced peaches
1 stick of butter

Drain the juice out of three of the cans then put the peaches in the bottom of the dish. then put in the other three cans WITH the juice. Dump both cake mixes on top of the peaches. DO NOT STIR! Then slice the butter into little pads and place around the top of the cake mix. Put on the lid, then place near the coals and put more coals on top. Bake for about 20 mins then give the dish a 180 degree turn and bake for another 20 mins. The dessert is finished when you have soft carmelized peaches and a bubbling brown crust!! It is so yummy and I promise you WON'T have leftovers!!
