Banana Boats

Posted on Posted in Backcountry food

This recipe comes courtesy of Carmen Scott.

1 banana
1-2 Tbsp dark chocolate chunks
Sheet of tinfoil

With the banana peel still on, slice the banana open, taking care to not go the whole way through.
Pull the banana open and stuff the chocolate chunks inside.
Wrap banana in tinfoil and place in the fire, preferably on hot coals.
Turn banana over after about 5 minutes.
Banana is done when it is soft to the touch, usually about ten minutes.
