Here is a fun and decadent treat to enjoy over a summer campfire. Gather the family, bring plenty of spoons, and enjoy telling stories and jokes as you dig into these delicious campfire banana boats—an instant family favorite!
Bananas (one per serving)
Peanut butter (or peanut butter / butterscotch chips)
Leave the banana in the peel and cut a slit down the center, lengthwise, without cutting through completely. Place the banana on a piece of foil and stuff with peanut butter, chocolate chips and marshmallows. Wrap each banana in the foil and seal the edges tight. Place directly on the fire for about five minutes, until the toppings melt. (Don’t overcook or the marshmallows will turn to liquid.)
Remove the banana boat from the fire, allow the foil to cool, and dig in to this scrumptious, gooey treat!
Note: If you don’t have an open flame, no problem—toss these banana boats in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or place on a grill for five minutes. Experiment with alternative fillers such as peanut butter cups, Snickers bars, flavored marshmallows, etc. Use your imagination to create a personal banana boat masterpiece!
