These are a favourite that take me back to my childhood, sitting at the cabin next door making banana boats instead of boring old S’mores like I made with my family.
I thought I had won the S’mores lottery!!
I had all but forgotten about them until recently, but my kids love bananas almost as much as they love S’mores so I decided to see if they enjoyed them as much as I did when I was a kid!
- Ripe, firm Bananas- one per person
- 1-2 Tablespoons of chocolate chips per banana
- 1-2 Tablespoons of mini marshmallows
- Other toppings as desired- nuts, strawberries, caramel, etc.
- Cut 12 inch sheets of heavy duty foil
- With sharp knife, make deep lengthwise cut along inside curve of each banana, being careful not to cut all the way through.
- Open slit to form pocket.
- Crimp and shape 1 sheet of foil around each banana, forming boats.
- Hold the banana and fill pocket with chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows
- Return each banana to its foil boat.
- Seal top of foil, leaving 2 to 3 inches headspace.
- Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until marshmallows softened.
- Bake 15 to 20 minutes in oven until marshmallows softened.
- Can also place in campfire coals to cook or on a rack over the fire, cook until marshmallows softened.
Cook by preferred method. Remove from heat once marshmallows and chocolate chips are melted, and eat with a spoon! My son actually thought the marshmallows were whipped cream somehow… but he loved it!
