Banana boats

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

I left this recipe in a comment on my friend Sherri's cooking blog Everything in Moderation (that's a terrific cooking blog by the way...if you don't visit her you should!) and then decided this morning that I should share it with y'all too :) You can bake these in the oven, cook them on the grill or even cook them over a campfire. The kids will love them!

What you'll need:

1 whole banana, in the skin, per person

for each banana:

1 tsp butter
a small handful miniature marshmallows or large marshmallows cut into small pieces
a small handful chocolate chips
foil

I wash the outside of my bananas but I'm a germ freak and you don't have to do this. You won't be eating the skin. Slice each banana longways (like you do for a banana split), slicing through the skin but only on one side. Do not cut the banana completely in half. You want it open like a baked potato. Place open side up on a piece of foil large enough to completely wrap the banana. Fill the inside of the banana with butter, then marshmallow, then chocolate chips, pressing down to 'mush' the ingredients into the banana. Wrap it up tight and either place in a 350 degree oven or on the grill or fire. Let them cook about 10 minutes or until the insides are melted. Serve immediately but be careful because they're HOT!

Cost:
bananas - $2.15
butter - $1.75/pound
marshmallows- $1.09
chocolate chips - $2.50
Total - $3.92 for 4 banana boats/ $0.98 each
