We have been out in the woods for the past few days biking, hiking and beach combing. We had such a great time and on top of the traditional s’mores, we also tried out another sweet treat for around the campfire or the grill, whichever one works for you.
Chocolate chips or chocolate squares
Just slice open a fairly firm banana length-wise with the peel still on, making sure not to cut all the way through. Then stuff it with chocolate (and maybe some marshmallows) and wrap it in aluminum foil.
Place it on the grill (or in your campfire) as the coals die down.
You’ll know they’re ready to be eaten when the peel is black, the banana is soft and the chocolate is all melty. It won’t take long…3-5 minutes tops…if the coals are still hot. Cooking time will vary greatly depending on how hot your fire is. We just kept checking on it, pulling it out with tongs, checking, wrapping it back up and placing it back in the coals until it was ready.
Scoop into a bowl or just eat straight out of the banana peel.
Did I change anything? We didn’t add any marshmallows. We just used chocolate.
What did the family think? Only two of us tried it, but it was REALLY good. It would have been super, duper good with some vanilla ice cream on the side.

We have to try this at the next campout!
We made those (with marshmallows!) when we went camping as a kid (and recently as adults with the kids!). We called the banana boats and they are DELISH! But DEFINITELY need the marshmallows (but then again, I’m a marshmallow fiend!). I can’t control myself with popcorn balls and rice krispy treats!
