Grilled Banana Boats, also known as Campfire Banana Splits, are a fun dessert for our little kids or us big kids. This recipe was taught to me while on an adult camping trip at the lake. You can prep them at home, but likely you will have all of the ingredients right there at your campsite. Or make them easily on the grill from the comfort of your own home.
Grilled Banana Boats are loved by kids, adults and beyond. They are easy to make, take no time at all, and are healthier than most desserts.
- 4 whole bananas, unpeeled
- 8 tbsp chocolate chips
- 8 tbsp mini marshmallows
- 6 graham crackers, crushed loosely
- Caramel sauce for topping (optional)
- Take each unpeeled banana and cut it lengthwise, but not all the way through, starting at the stem end. Only cut 3/4 the way through the banana to keep it intact when grilling. Slightly open the pocket that you just made in the banana. This is similar to how you would cut a baked potato after cooking.
- Prepare 4 squares of aluminum foil. Place one banana on top of each piece of foil. Dividing the filling up evenly, fill each banana with equal amounts of chocolate chips, marshmallows, and graham cracker pieces. Wrap each stuffed banana up tightly in foil.
- Place the bananas over medium-low heat on the grill or campfire. Cook about 4 minutes until the chocolate is melted.
- Remove from the grill and carefully unwrap each banana. Serve with additional caramel sauce if desired.
