"Right on! I used to enjoy these during summer camping trips. Wouldn't change a thing! 5 stars all the way!"
"These are great to make with children. I first experienced these on a Girl Scout campout years and years ago. We did not use the brown sugar...really not needed with the sweetness of the banana, marshmallows and chocolate. Be careful not to overcook or the banana will dissolve."
"I make something similiar 2 this, instead of brown sugar i also add peanut butter in the middle...yummy!"
"Tish, I haven't had these since I was a kid! Thank you so much for posting a favorite childhood memory! "
"perfect, easy camping recipe. Kid loved them and they were a snap to make and clean up"
"This was yummy and easy and fun to make but my daughter lamented we weren't having smoores."
"I used to have these at Girl Scout camp, but we would put back one strip of the peel and use a fork to mash the banana to allow room for the filling. We didn't use the brown sugar, but added red hot candies instead. We would just put the peel back after filling and wrap tightly in the foil. It was to die for. Thanks for posting this recipe!"
"Our first family camping trip had to be canceled due to rain. But we were still able to make these on the grill at home. DH says they deserve 5 stars just for their simplicity. I say you put chocolate with a banana ... 5 stars immediately. I don't know that the sugar is even necessary but I'm not complaining. Thanks!"
"Yum! I used mini-chocolate chips for easier stuffing."
"I used to have this when I went camping. Very yummy."
"An all time camping favorite of ours. We don't use the sugar. We often add chopped peanuts or pecans on top. Sometimes if we are in the city we make them on the BBQ. YUMM-O!"
"Awesome, Went camping at Allegany State Park in New York, Beautiful Park by the way. We had 4 Adults and 8 kids ranging in age from 19-11, and we all made our Banana Boat, (without brown sugar- not needed at all) wrapped in foil and placed in the campfire. These are the best VERY sweet everyone wanted more. This is a fun great way to get the kids cooking, and easy. This IS the Cherry on top for the night at any campfire. 10 Stars. Thanks for the recipe"
"We just made these on a camping trip and loved 'em! I left off the sugar since I forget to bring it. Next time I might add some peanut butter too as a few other similar recipes suggest. This is definitely a keeper for the camp fire cooking though!"
"This was such a great quick and easy recipe I made going camping. My kids loved it!!!! The only thing I did different was I sprinked Cinnamon Sugar on it instead of the Brown Sugar. I'm now going to start cooking them as a dessert when I'm at home on the grill."
"I can't believe I forgot to rate this. I took this with us for our annual family camping trip. The WHOLE family ( all 17 of us) loved these. I will be making these for years to come. Thank you for posting."
"We used to make these every year at our Girl Scout camp event. All the girls (and adults) loved them!"
"We make these every time we go camping, and then every once in a while when grilling in the summer here at home. LOVE this recipe, especially with the brown sugar!"
"Have never made these with the brown sugar addition, but I am known for my excellent banana smores when I camp with my friends! These are very sweet but VERY tasty - and easy to make ahead, too!"
"I grew up making these all the time! We would make them during girl scout trips and many nights around the camp fire!! very very yummy!"
"This was a perfect dessert on the last night of our camping trip. So easy, and very yummy! Thanks :)"
