  1. Lay a square of aluminum foil onto a flat surface. Put the banana halves side-by-side in the center of the foil with the cut-sides facing upwards. Arrange chocolate pieces and marshmallows onto one of the banana halves and sandwich between the two halves. Wrap foil around the banana to secure together.
  2. Place the foil packet directly on the hot coals of your campfire and cook until the chocolate and marshmallow are melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Remove packet from fire and let cool a few minutes before serving directly from the foil packet.

The girls LOVED this for a treat after dinner tonight! Of course, I wasn't camping, so I just put everything on a plate and put it in the microwave for about a minute until everything was all me...

I didn't like this. Warm banana like this got runny and made a perfectly fine banana taste rotten.

Banana boats are a great camping treat that is very fast and easy to make.
