I made a version of these banana boats a few years back and have loved them ever since. If you got the grill going for a barbecue dinner anyway, it only takes 5 minutes to whip up these s’mores-like chocolate marshmallow grilled bananas.
This year I tried a few with peanut butter instead of the marshmallows (my preference) and a few with both (daughter’s preference!)
Use your grill to make a quick, better-for-you banana dessert instead of s’mores.
4 ripe bananas
3 tablespoons peanut butter AND/OR 3 tablespoons mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
Heat grill to medium high (or use a grill pan over medium high heat.)
Lie banana on its side and cut a slit into the peel from top of the banana to the bottom (but do not cut all the way through.) Repeat with remaining bananas.
Gently open up the peel and flesh.
Spread peanut butter evenly into each banana and then stuff with marshmallows. (Note: you can use only peanut butter or only marshmallows if you prefer.)
Add chocolate chips on top and firmly press into bananas.
Place on grill and cover. Grill about 5 minutes or until peels turn black and bananas are soft and everything is melted.

This is an interesting addition for the grill. Have you even tried using it again on other fruits? If yes, can you share them to us? I love your idea and I can't wait to try this for my kids. They'll surely love this. Thanks!

So many fruits are great on the grill like pineapple or any stone fruit such as peaches, nectarines, plums ore apricots!

This is a cool idea as I love bananas dipped in chocolate and peanut butter. It may not be really pretty and visually attractive but this sure is delicious.
