While I’m on the topic of boats, I thought I would include my Banana Boats recipe. We had a great time boating at Smith Mountain Lake but we ran out of time to make these Banana Boats. Since I had all the makings I figured I might as well make them here at home, just to give us that continued vacation feel. Years ago Himself and I went camping. Once. When you have a 100 pound Rottie with you, the camping trip becomes suddenly about them. Try getting a huge Rottie out of a lake, it is merely impossible. Then you must listen to them lick themselves all night long. But alas, by morning she was shiny and new. We made these Banana Boats on that camping trip and wow what a treat. Diamond Dog even liked a taste too. These boats are fantastic but after a few you will definitely sink. Give these a go at your next cookout or camping trip, you wont be sorry.
On a 12-15 inch square of heavy duty foil center one banana. Slice the banana open, lying flat. Spread with peanut butter, sprinkle with chocolate chips and top with marshmallows. Take the far side of the foil and side closest to you and bring them together being sure that the banana folds in on itself. Roll those sides down together sealing the banana in. Roll the end sides up sealing the ends. Place in hot coals, on a hot grill, or on your cook top grill for about 10 minutes or until everything is melted and the banana is creamy. To serve gently open the top letting the steam escape then dig in with a spoon, it will be hot! Or serve in bowls. Make one boat per person.
