Campfire Bananas

A friend in my mom's club shared this dessert idea in a post about good campfire recipes.  We don't have a fire pit and we're not going camping any time soon, but we tried it on the grill last night and it was delicious!

Warm and gooey deliciousness!!


You'll need:

bananas 
chocolate chips
peanut butter or mini marshmallows
aluminum foil


DIRECTIONS:

1.  Cut off the top stem of your banana and slice the banana (in its peel) down the inside face.



2.  Fill the crevice with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and/or peanut butter.



3.  Spray a piece of aluminum foil with a little bit of cooking spray and tightly wrap up the banana.

4.  Put it on the grill or in the hot coals for 5-10 minutes.  ( I did about 5 minutes on the grill, but could have gone a little bit longer )



5.  Let cool briefly until you're able to unwrap the foil and enjoy with a spoon.



I did peanut butter and chocolate chips and it was delicious!!  ( the kids did marshmallows and chocolate chips and liked it, but actually liked my peanut butter one better)

  9. I remember doing this at Girl Guide camp! Thanks for bringing up an awesome memory, and they are amazingly delicious. A teeny splash of honey goes great in those, too.
