I first learned how to make these as a small child at daycare. To this day, it's one of my most favorite simple pleasures. This is good with any kind of spread (nutella, marshmallow creme, almond butter.....) and is also good with chopped nuts. GREAT for a quick campfire dessert.
Better if you use PB& Choc chips in banana and then for the top layer, use marshmallows. Cook at 350 in foil until marshmallows at toasted. Then eat with a spoon. Excellent!
A little messy to serve, but the kids and hubby say it is well worth the mess!! VERY GOOD!
To keep it simple for camping I use Reese's peanut butter cups. at home in the fire place, i try different things. Nutella being my favorite :)
We have been making these for years, under the name of "Banana Boats". W use a combo of PB chips and Chocolate chips. It's also great with a spray of whipped cream topping on top when they are finished cooking. Yum!
Tried to make in oven according to prior reviewers directions. It was ok but I think banana et al probably cooks better over a fire. I would have like my banana more well done (rather than just warm).
This is how we do this: Peel back one section of peel and cut out a pie shaped wedge of banana. Sprinkle in chocolate chips and mini marshmallows, close banana and wrap in foil. Then cook it over a campfire and eat with a spoon. It is the best camping dessert ever!
My husband changed it by accident a turned out better. Instead of pb and choc chips he used an Oh henery choc bar cut in 1/2 lengthwise to fit into the banana . It was delish.
