Recipe by alleycatb
We dont eat marshmallows due to the horse byproducts in them so this is something I fashioned to make up for the camp smores my kids cant have. They are decadent and delishious. For each serving you will need small squares of tin foil about 1 foot square Note recipe is for one serving I seem to be getting a lot of reviews that have nothing to do with this recipe but objections to my discription. So as I cant respond to the reviews, I will clarify here. Gelatin contains connective tissues of pigs, cows, horses, and if you get the kosher variety fish. Marshmallows contain gelatin. I am adding the following links for your purusal. I am saddened that my ratings are being affected by a misunderstanding. Even if you dont like my discription it would be nice to know if you like the recipe which is really the important part of this> I offered this recipe that my children and friends really like for your enjoyment. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/533769 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelatin its good to know your ingredients

Directions See How It's Made
- All ingredients are approximate. I usually just measure with my eyes or hands it always comes out just great.
- fold up the edges of the tin foil squares.
- cut bananas in half lengthwise and place on tinfoil a couple inches apart.
- crush cookies and spread between the bananas.
- spread dollops of the jam over the cookie crumbs.
- sprinkle with chocolate chips and then juice (or wine for the adult version) just to moisten the mixture.
- fold over the tinfoil and seal to make little pouches. place along the edge of your cook fire turning occasionally for about 15-30 minutes.
- I usually place these in the fire as I am serving supper and then they are ready when we are done eating supper.
- open the packets carefully to avoid steam burns and eat straight from the packets.
