How To Make A Banana Boat
The Classic Ingredients
Banana Boats are a warm and gooey treat that are just too yummy to ever pass up. Banana Boats can be made while camping, or at home.
- Large bright yellow banana
- Marshmallows, large or mini. Fluff can be substituted.
- Hershey's Chocolate Bars
The Classic Recipe
Slit a large banana down the middle lengthwise
Leave the skin/peel on and carefully open up to allow some space for ingredients
Tear large marshmallows, or use mini marshmallows and sink them into banana center
In between marshmallow pieces slide in broken up pieces of Hershey's chocolate bars
Sprinkle brown sugar on top
Wrap in foil so that it will open top first at the seam.
Place near campfire coals, on a campfire grill, the BBQ grill, or in the oven for about 7 minutes.
Carefully check to see if done. Place in for a few more minutes if chocolate and mashmallow have not yet melted
When done, the skin/peel will be very dark in some places.
Set foiled Banana Boat on plates to serve. Guests can open up foil and eat Banana Boat right out of the peel.
