    1. With a knife, slice into the banana lengthwise along the concave edge, taking care not to cut the banana completely in half. (I did one cut, and Dan did two parallel cuts — either way you want to do it is fine.)

    2. Stuff the desired amount of mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and caramel bits into the banana.

    3. Wrap tightly in a piece of foil, then place onto the campfire grate for 5 – 10 minutes, depending on how hot your fire is; turn once halfway through. If you put them directly into the fire, reduce cooking time.

    4. Remove with a pair of tongs, then unwrap carefully.

    5. If using a grill, cook for 5 – 10 minutes, turning occasionally. If using an oven, bake at 350F for 10 – 12 minutes.


    • Dan and I wanted to bring something fun for the kiddos (and big kiddos) on our camping trip this weekend. We knew a campfire would need to figure prominently into the equation, and we thought bananas stuffed with all sorts of goodies would please everyone. Here, the campfire brings together sweet bananas with gooey marshmallows, chocolate, and caramel — just add ice cream for a twist on a banana split. These can be assembled ahead of time at home for cooking at camp, but we put everything together at the park (hence the flashlight-assisted photos). You could also do these at home on the grill or in the oven, depending on how cold it is outside.
