    Right on! I used to enjoy these during summer camping trips. Wouldn't change a thing! 5 stars all the way!

    I've never made camping banana boats before but gave these a try and they were amazing. I'm bummed that I hadn't given these a try sooner. They're like a banana s'mores and so easy to make!

    You can also stuff with little pieces of chocolate like rolos, mini peanut butter cups, mini kit kats etc.. if you happen to be at a candy store you can try stuffing them with any of those little gourmet chocolates! I can't imagine adding sugar to these! the marshmallows and chocolate are plenty, not to mention the sweetness of the banana.

    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!


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
