How To Make Campfire Banana Boats

While we love our s’mores around here, trip leader Heather showed us a new twist on the classic campfire dessert during our Shoestring Adventure in Big Sur.

Simply slice a banana down the middle, stuff with marshmallows, chocolate chips and your favorite toppings, wrap in aluminum foil and bake over the campfire until soft and gooey. Enjoy with a spoon from your favorite camp chair!


  • Banana
  • Aluminum foil
  • Chocolate chips, like milk chocolate, dark chocolate, butterscotch or white chocolate
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Other fillings of your choice, like peanut butter or crumbled graham cracker


  1. Cut your banana down the middle (Leave it in the peel)
  2. Stuff with chocolate, marshmallows and/or other fillings of choice.
  3. Wrap in foil and place in hot embers for about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Turn and rotate often.
