Grilled Bananas with Sweet Toppings

Serves 4
Time 20 min
This crowd-pleasing dessert is easy to assemble both ahead of time (before a camping trip) or just before cooking. Let kids make their own by choosing toppings that suit their tastes. Substitute your favorite fruit for the strawberries or use honey instead of chocolate chips, if you like.

Ingredients
  • 4 bananas
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate or carob chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/3 cup granola or graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Method

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Hold each banana in your hand, curved side up, and carefully halve it lengthwise through the top of the peel without cutting through the bottom side. Arrange each banana on a piece of foil.

Using your fingers, gently pry open each banana, making a space down the center for the toppings. Arrange chocolate chips, strawberries and granola down the center of each banana then top with marshmallows and walnuts.

Fold foil around each banana, leaving the top open, to form a bowl that will protect it from direct heat. Arrange bananas on grill and cook until banana is tender and marshmallows and chocolate are melted and hot, about 10 minutes. Set aside to let cool slightly before serving.
