Banana Boats

Most people love roasting marshmellows and eating smores while sitting around a campfire. I have never really been a huge fan of smores, but I sure do love a good banana boat. What is a banana boat? A banana boat is only the BEST campfire treat ever!


1 banana
Chocolate of choice - I prefer dark


Rinse the banana. Then cut off the stem at the top and the hard brown spot at the bottom of the banana. Next cut the banana length wise but do not cut all the way through the banana and the peel. Cut just enough so you can create a space to fill with chocolate and marshmellows. Stuff the banana with the chocolate and marshmellows. Wrap the stuffed banana in aluminum foil and place in the coals of your fire. Once the chocolate and marshmellows have suffiently softened pull the bananas out of the fire-- becareful not to burn yourself. Dig in and enjoy!

*Note: leave the banana peel on the banana the entire time.
