If you are an avid Pinterest user like me then you will probably have seen at least one image of a banana stuffed with chocolate and other treats and cooked on a campfire. I know I’ve seen it thousands of times and every time I drooled a little and thought I must try that.
Well last week I received my Degustabox subscription and in the box was a pot of Solo Toasted Marshmallow Creme. This is every bit as good as it sounds. The box actually suggests s’mores as a serving option so I thought why not try the campfire s’more style banana boats so.. I did and they are incredible. So simple, a perfect last minute dessert and it tastes extremely indulgent. I added peanut butter to ours as I think it works really well with banana and some chocolate chips – because chocolate enhances most dishes.
I hardly feel this needs a recipe but here we go:
You will need:
1 tbsp of peanut butter
1.5 tbsp of toasted marshmallow creme OR a handful of mini marshmallows
1 tsp of chocolate chips
Slice through the peel of your banana almost through to the peel on the other side but not quite.
Open the peel up to create a pouch and fill the inside with your peanut butter and top with the marshmallow creme and choc chips.
Wrap in a loose foil pouch and bake in a very hot oven ( gas mark 6) for about 15 minutes. Eat fairly quickly whilst your ingredients are melted and oozing but watch you don’t burn your tongue. You could serve with icecream or whipped cream but it’s perfectly awesome on its own. Enjoy.
You can buy Solo Toasted Marshmallow Creme from American Soda.
