Smoked Banana Dessert
This is a REALLY easy recipe - AND - a crowd favorite. You can do this on a gas grill, smoker, or even in the oven. The kids REALLY like it and if you eat it while you are standing up - it's fat free!
This is also a really cool do it yourself snack that the kids can help out and build their own!
Use a piece of foil - I prefer heavy duty to make sure it doesn't rip / tear during the process - make sure it is a big enough piece to completely wrap the banana. If you don't have heavy duty foil - use regular foil and fold in in half so it is double thick.
Place the banana in the middle and slit it down the middle.
Squeeze the banana from the ends so it creates a cavity in the center.
Get your favorite candy bars - I like to use left over Halloween candy, mini marsh mellows, and graham crackers.
Dice the candy bars into small pieces - about 1/2 of a full size candy bar or 3 of the really small Halloween size candy bars.
Crumble the graham crackers.
Stuff the diced candy bars into the banana, top with the mini marsh mellows and then sprinkle the crushed graham crackers on top. Some people like to add the graham crackers on after the banana is cooked so there is some extra crunch on top.
Wrap the banana in foil and place on the grate / oven at 275 - 300F. If you are using a gas grill - turn the burners off on one side and place the banana on the non lit side. Cook for about 20 - 30 minutes. Some people like their bananas less squishy and closer to 20 minutes is better. Personally, I like it a little soupy and the 30 minute mark seems perfect.
OH YEAH! Dig in - let's eat!
