At Sue’s backyard banana boat debut, children and adults went wild and ate until we ran low on bananas. Best of all, they’re easy to make.
Bananas. Fine if still a titch green and tart.
Chocolate. Semisweet chips or broken-up bars.
Marshmallows. Miniatures usually recommended, but full-size works.
Slice unpeeled bananas lengthwise so they open like hotdog buns. Into opening put chocolate and marshmallows, your call on how much. Close banana, wrap in foil, and cook with seam in foil on top on coals at campfire’s edge or on a grill. For the first boat, cook five minutes, see what you’ve got, and adjust cooking time accordingly. When done, open foil, let cool (especially for kids), and dig in with spoons.
