Apparently banana boats are a common camping treat for the Girl Scouts, but apparently I missed the memo and had never heard of them until a year ago! In doing backyard camping again this year, Evan and I enjoyed a batch of these decadent desserts from the comfort of our fire pit. Banana boats can be made either onsite or at home and then stuffed in a cooler — whatever works for you!
Campfire Banana Boats
– 1-2 fresh bananas per person
– Mini marshmallows
– Dark chocolate chips
– Heavy duty tin foil
First, slice the bananas down the middle to create a “boat.”
Then, stuff them with as many mini marshmallows and chocolate chips as you can.
Carefully wrap each banana in at least 2-3 layers of heavy duty tin foil.
Once the fire’s ready, toss them in for approximately 5-7 minutes. Use tongs to move them around occasionally so they don’t burn.
Unwrap and dig in! You’ll want to enjoy these treats with a plastic fork or spoon.
Banana boats are about as fun to make as they are to eat. The marshmallows and chocolate infuse into the piping hot banana and turn everything into a wonderful, gooey mess.
These are great for both kids and adults alike, and would be a perfect treat to make with your family for your next camping adventure.
Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
