As much as I love s'mores, it's nice to have variety in a weekend getaway menu. When planning a classic camping trip, pack the fixing for s'mores and the fixings for these delicious baked banana boats. Kids and grownups will both have fun selecting the fillings and stuffing the bananas. Tightly wrapped in foil, these bananas are cooked over an open fire. It's quick, hassle free, and you won't have to hunt for sticks in the dark! To see how to make this sweet treat,
1 firm banana
1 tbsp. chocolate chips
1 to 2 tsp. walnut pieces
2 to 3 tsp. mini-marshmallows
- On a flat surface, arrange a double thickness of aluminum foil large enough to wrap around the banana. Leaving the skin on the banana, cut a long slit along the inside curve.
- If the banana is very curved, flatten it slightly with the palm of your hand. Press chocolate chips, walnuts, and marshmallows into the opening. (For variety, fill the canoes with granola, oreos, M&M's or trail mix.)
- Wrap the banana with aluminum foil and lay it on hot coals. Cook it for 8 to 10 minutes or until the chocolate and marshmallows are melted. Let the boat cool slightly, then eat the inside with a spoon.
Makes 1 serving.
