Banana Boats

No, I am not talking about this Banana boat:

Nor am I talking about THIS banana boat:

Nor am I talking about THIS banana boat

(although I'd LOVE to be on this one right. about. now.)

I'm actually talking about THIS banana boat:

Now, I don't know about YOU...but who even KNEW that such goodness even existed???

Not me. But now, I'm the biggest fan of them.

That's right....a campfire banana boat.

(*Thank you, Margie & Aaron for introducing me to my new. best. friend.*)

Here's the basics for a recipe, if you wanna try it:


Banana Boat

aluminum foil

1 banana, unpeeled

Miniature marshmallows (or jet puffed, cut in smaller peices)

Milk chocolate chips or broken candy bars

anything else you want: (coconut, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, toffee bits, nuts, pineapple, etc)

Cut a slit lengthwise about two-thirds of the way through the banana from the stem to the base. Fill the slit with as much of the above ingredients as you want! The more, the merrier!!! It all melts together into one luscious dessert!

To heat the banana boat, wrap in foil and cook on hot coals for five minutes, or until the chocolate and marshmallows have melted. Serve as a snack, a dessert or a treat around the campfire.

One word of caution: If you leave the boats in the coals too long, the bananas will liquefy.

Now, what are you waiting for....go start a fire!

*Don't forget to invite me!!!*

Count me in. I will have to have Mar and Aaron make a fire when I get home to have some. Sorry you missed out of the yummy stuff for so long!
