We’ve posted about this dessert before, but it’s fun to bring back up because it’s perfect for a grill or even in a campfire. Hmm, that makes us dream about a day boating (perhaps on a CDA waterslide pontoon rental 😉) and then an evening sitting around a campfire enjoying a delicious banana boat dessert.

And the days are truly starting to warm up where just such a dream could come true! So here are the details to make this dream a reality…at least with the dessert part of it.

Banana Boats

Here’re the details on the deliciousness. 



Chocolate Chips

Small Marshmallows

Berries (if desired)

Aluminum foil


Use one banana per person you’re serving. With a knife, peal back a section of the peel but don’t detach it from the rest of the banana. Then, with a spoon, scoop out the banana and place it into a bowl. 

Mix the banana with the chocolate chips, marshmallows, and whatever else you think would be tasty. I’ve tried crushed raspberries before. Yum! Squish everything together. 

Then spoon as much of the mixture as will fit back into the peel. Close the peel and roll it into aluminum foil.

Bake in the oven. About 15 minutes at 350 degrees will work. All you want is to heat up the banana and melt everything else. Then pull out of the oven, let cool for a few minutes and enjoy. As stated before, this can also be done on a grill or in a campfire.

So now, even if you can’t make it out on a boat this weekend, you can pretend the banana boat is sailing down a chocolate river and you’re fishing for marshmallows! Enjoy!
