Summer is my favorite time of year. I love barbecues, campfires, and especially all the delicious food. This recipe is fun and easy for your kids to make, and it tastes amazing.
I do highly recommend bringing forks for them though, because they tend to get a little messy.
They are so easy to throw together and make the perfect treat around the campfire. These will not disappoint
I am usually not much of a banana lover, but this sweet treat, with the combination of chocolate chips and marshmallows, was a win win.
would these work in the grill or in the oven?
This recipe is best when made over the campfire and creating memories out in nature, but you could definitely make them in your grill or your oven.
We recommend baking them at about 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. You can check on them as needed, to make sure the banana is cooked and browning and the marshmallows and chocolate chips are melted.
We still bake and grill ours, wrapped in foil, because it kind of contains the mess, and less dishes to do.
Be careful when taking them off the fire, out of the oven or the grill, because they will be very hot. You may want to give them a minute before opening the foil, because the marshmallows and the banana juices will be very warm.
what else could i add to these?
The thing I love about these banana boats, is all the variations you can make with them. They are so delicious and simple, and just a few toppings can change the entire taste.
Here are a few additions we recommend trying:
- Fresh Strawberries
- Caramel Sauce
- Strawberry Sauce
- Hot Fudge
- Peanut Butter
- Peanut Butter Chips
- Butterscotch Chips
- M & M’s
- Brown Sugar
- Nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cashews, macadamia nuts, etc).
