When I counseled Church camps in the 70's we called these banana boats. Ours were slightly different. We left the stem attached and cut a wedge the length of the banana leaving the peel attached on the stem end. Then we would fill the opening with pieces of a chocolate candy bar and marshmallows and cover with the piece of peel before cooking in the fire. Equally good and equally messy.
Mmmmmmm! We just got back from a camping trip and we have fallen in love with this recipe. It's delicious! My husband said that he wants to make this at home in the oven! The only thing I would do different next time is stuff the marshmallows in first because they were all over the aluminum foil and not in the banana. Thanks for a great idea.
These were so cool! Even my hubby who normally doesn't have dessert was curious enough to try one of these then he went to work and told everyone so now I have to make copies of this recipe. The bananas were a little tricky to stuff but worth it. I recommend also using nonstick foil as well with these!
Let these cook slow and make sure they melt! Eat with a spoon for an excellent treat. We camp a lot through the summer and this is a great change of pace and mom's way to sneak in some extra fruit! For those reading other reviews OF COURSE YOU DON'T EAT THE PEEL!!! scoop the filling out!
I tried this while camping this weekend and our guests LOVED it. I used peanut butter & milk chocolate chips and it was awesome. Everyone kept saying we needed some ice cream whipped cream and cherries and it would be complete. I think I will try butterscotch chips next time. Thanks for a great recipe!!
