  1. Slit each banana lengthwise through the peel, making sure not to cut all the way through to the other side. Stuff the bananas with marshmallows and chocolate chips.
  2. Wrap each banana in aluminum foil and cook over a fire, on the barbecue, or in a 300 degree oven for 5 minutes, or until chocolate is melted. Eat with a spoon.

These are great! The first time I made them I wrapped my tin foil too tightly around the banana and ended up with most of my marshmallows and chocolate sticking to the tin foil. The next time I made them, I made a loose pouch out of the aluminum foil and it turned out a lot better.

Tastes ok, but not a big hit at our cookout.

Very very simple, but very very good! I've made this before, and have always made it in the oven, which takes about 15 or so minutes to melt the chips and mallows. The taste of chocolate, marshmallow and melted banana is SOOO good! I've also tried with PB chips, and added some walnuts etc., all very good!

Easy recipe! I used the oven and I had to increase the baking time a little.

One of my favorite camp desserts, though I do make them at home in the microwave. Make sure to cut off banana stems before microwaving as they will catch fire. Cook time varies so I always cook for a minute at a time. Would be great for kids to do as it doesn't involve the stove or oven, and it is good and squishy when done.

Instead of the chocolate chips, I took 4 different types of chocolate bar and cut them up into pieces. Then everyone chose what kind they wanted in their boat. SO good! I highly recommend this with your favorite candy bar.

Loved this recipe. It was so simple yet the kids(2, 5, & 6) had so much fun making these. They loved being able to make their own dessert. After pulling out of the oven I also let the kids add whipped cream, strawberries, and blueberries. It was absolutely delicious. Plus, clean up was a breeze by just wrapping the aluminum foil over the banana peel afterwards and tossing.

I first learned how to make this at daycare when I was very little. This is the best PMS food. It's even better with chunky peanut butter spread on the inside, along with the chips and marshmallows. You can also vary up the chips to what you like to use. Or you could skip the middle man and use Nutella.
