Banana Boats may be a blast from the past, but these little beauties are not only super simple and great for camping, they are deliciously addictive dessert.
Don’t you love how random memories of your childhood come out of nowhere sometimes. The other day I made a comment to Bec on how much chocolate we had in the fridge leftover from Easter. I then randomly remembered a dessert that we used to make in Scouts (yes I was a Scout in my younger days) when we went hiking trips.
What we used to do was grab a banana, cut a slit in it to add what ever chocolate bar we had in our bags then wrap it in aluminium foil and put under the coals to cooked. I thought I’d give it a go and it’s as delicious as I remember it as a kid.
There is really no limit to what you can add to the banana like marshmallows, a mars bar or snickers. I have got three possible ways you can have a go with this. My favourite was using a plain chocolate egg with a couple of white chocolate dots adding some dried fruit and crushed peanuts in it to recreate the Cadbury fruit & nut chocolate flavour.
It’s a little quirky and different but a fantastic, quick and totally decadent dessert that everyone will love.
You’ve nailed this. What a great idea. Really easy for me to make too.
I’m glad you liked it. This is a fond dessert I love to make.
