How To Make Banana Boat S’mores

I love a campfires. I love cooking things over a campfire. I might even eat one toasted marshmallow. But not a s’more.

No, not because marshmallows are little puffs of artificial junk. (Which they are.) They’re just too messy. Seriously, look at my picture on the right side of the blog. I have facial hair. Do you have any idea how annoying it is to spend a night with melted marshmallow goo all around your mouth. Ecch.

But then, in one of the old cookbooks my wife found, there was this recipe for a “banana boat”. They’re crazy good for how easy they are to make.

(Before you go on, I need you to think about Chevy Chase in Caddyshack. Got it? Okay, now go on.)

Remove the little wedge of banana and fill the space with chocolate chips — or broken up pieces of a chocolate bar — and mini marshmallows.

Tell the kid next to you that he needs more marshmallows. If he doesn’t listen, just go ahead and add more for him.

Close the flap of peel over, and wrap the whole thing up in foil.

Set the banana on the grill, or even right in the coals.

Wait.

Do they look done?

Let’s check. This one is just a little melty.

This one is well-done.

Mmm … gooey and delicious.

And if you take it out of the foil and put it in a nice bowl, this could even make a nice inside dessert for grown-ups.

And that’s it.
