Banana Boats
Serves 4

4 bananas
½ chocolate chips (I like dark chocolate, but use whatever your group prefers)
1 cup mini marshmallows

Tin foil
Bonfire pit, grill or oven

Optional Additions:
Peanut butter
Peanut butter chips

To aid you in eating the Banana Boats:
‘Nilla Wafers
Ginger snaps
Graham crackers
A spoon!

Using a sharp knife, cut a slit down the curved length of each banana, making a pocket but taking care not to cut all the way through the back of the banana.
Start stuffing your banana boat with chocolate chips, as they will help pry the banana open. Next, add the marshmallows and any other nuts or sweets. A little goes a long way here!

Place the stuffed banana boat on a square of tin foil. Bring the corners up and crimp together the sides, creating a foil packet around the banana. Repeat with the other bananas, getting your group involved as you go.

Carefully place the foil packets in the coals of a bonfire or on a grill

Cooking times:
Bonfire: about 6-8 minutes
Grill: about 10 minutes

Carefully remove the foil packets and allow them to cool for a few minutes. When opening, be careful of the escaping steam. Next, dig in and enjoy!
