My mom would bring all sorts of delicious things to make over the fire, but my favorite was always Campfire Banana Boats. These delicious and messy fireside treats are easy to whip up, don't take a lot of preparation and the kids will love being able to toss them straight onto the fire.
You probably have almost everything you need for these banana boats on hand, if not a quick trip to the store will get you all of the ingredients.
You will need:
- a knife
- chocolate chips
- small marshmallows
- Wet Nap (for clean up, these are messy!You can find a .55 cent off coupon here, while supplies last. )
Throw the bananas onto the campfire. I like to throw them at the base of the fire versus right on top. All the bananas to roast for about 10 minutes. Pull them out and check the insides, the bananas are done when the insides are warm and melted. Then dig in.
As with most campfire foods, these banana boats are seriously messy but delicious, so right before we headed up the canyon, I ran into Walmart to grab more tinfoil and a container of Wet-Nap. We love Wet-Nap for camping especially since they have made them stronger and softer than before and I love that they moisturize with aloe. Wet-Nap is found on the napkin isle because unlike a lot of other wipes, it is meant to be gentle on skin. My 5-year-old seriously loves them. I have never met someone who wanted to clean up their hands so much!
