Banana Boats

Here is the recipe our fans have been asking for! 

Banana Boats

Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Grilling time: 12 to 15 minutes

4 firm bananas
1 cup miniature marshmallows
2 chocolate bars, chopped into pieces
1/4 cup roughly chopped walnuts


1. Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

2. Using a sharp knife, cut a lengthwise slit down the center of each banana to make a pocket. Start and end about ½ inch from each end and be careful not to cut all the way through the banana. Grab the banana from each end and push gently towards each other to open up the pocket. Stuff the pocket with equal parts marshmallow, chocolate, and walnuts.

3. Grill the stuffed bananas over indirect medium heat, with the closed, until the chocolate melts, the marshmallows brown, and the peels turn dark, 12 to 15 minutes.

4. Serve with ice cream or eat with a spoon right from the peel.

my wife and friends absolutely loved them. Me? I don't like bananas, so i sprayed pam on some tin foil, and made my own marshmallow/chocolate/walnut mix and put on top of ice cream, which was also delicious.

i found after 10 minutes the banana peels were completely burnt black, (unlike the photos) but the inside were (apparently) perfectly cooked. the marsh on top was melted nicely and so was the chocolate.

Adapt and overcome, I like it!

The black peel is normal. The picture I took was "in-progress," as frankly, the peels don't look as "pretty" when fully cooked.

Thanks so much for sharing your success!
