Chocolate Marshmallow Banana Boats

Pop a few of these childhood campfire classics over the dying coals while you eat your dinner. When you're done, dessert is a mere unfold of the foil away. The finished product may look a little messy, but you'll be rewarded with a virtual pudding of tender, sweet, softened banana shot through with bittersweet chocolate and molten marshmallow. Adding a dollop of whipped cream or a spoonful of ice cream as a forgivable excess.

      Make a lengthwise slit down the inner curve of the banana, without piercing the skin on the other side.

      Wrap the banana securely in a square of foil.

      Lay on the grill rack over indirect heat and cook 15 to 30 minutes. Grilling time will depend on how hot your grill is and how ripe the banana is. With a potholder, squeeze the banana lightly. It should give slightly but not be squishy. If you unwrap it and it’s still too firm or the chocolate is not melted, wrap it up and continue to grill. The skin on the finished banana should be extremely dark brown.
