All you will need is:
1-2 Bananas (one for each person in your group)
Other things you will need:
Leather Gloves (Not required but good to use to protect your hands from the heat of the fire)
A camp fire with hot coals
How to make a Banana Boat:
First slice the top of the banana lengthwise and be careful not to slice it all the way through. Next open the top of the banana (The area where you sliced it), and stuff in chocolate chips and tiny marshmallows. For more advanced options you can add blueberries, or strawberries and pour your favorite rum inside the banana.
Last wrap the Banana completely in foil. Place the banana in the hot coals but not the blazing fire. Do not let the banana lay sideways or in a way that would cause the stem of the banana to burn. Although if you thoroughly wrapped the banana in foil this shouldn't be a problem.
Let the banana sit on the hot coals for about 10-15 minutes. Check with thongs to see if top of banana is soft. The Banana Boat is ready it appears soft or when the gooey banana awesomeness oozes out.
Finally remove the banana safely from the fire, unwrap the foil, let it cool down a tad if needed, grab a spoon, and enjoy!
The banana, marshmallows, and chocolate chips should have melted all together to form a delicious goo. Also try adding berries or rum for another delicious option. Try this easy awesome dessert next time you go camping and let me know if you found it as fantastic as I did.
