Recipe By:

  • 4-8 bananas
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Caramel Bites
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Peanut Butter Cups
  • Peppermint Patties
  • Any Chocolate Candy Bar
  • Graham Crackers, Crushed into crumbs
  • Rum, optional
  • Brown sugar
  • Cherries, Strawberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, Peaches, Raspberries, etc.
  • Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt, Cool Whip
  • Nuts and Various Sprinkles

  1. Tear a square piece of foil to cover each banana. Take the bottom of the banana and make a thin slice off so that the banana can sit up and not fall over.
  2. Take the knife and on the curve part of the belly of the banana and cut from tip to tip through the skin.
  3. Pull the skin apart on each side. Take the knife and make crosswise cuts of the banana. Do not cut all the way though the other side.
  4. Place on the foil.
  5. Fill the belly of the banana with your choice of toppings. Wrap foil tightly. Place on baking sheet and place in 350 oven for 5-8 minutes. Do not worry if skin turns brown. You can also do this on a grill.
  6. For the Bananas Foster Taste: Put a little butter, rum, brown sugar.
  7. Other mixtures I use are: Marshmallows, Peanut Butter Cups; Marshmallows and other Chocolate Pieces; Fruit and Chocolate. Just let your imagination run.

*****Let kids do these after you prep the banana. They will love filling the bananas. Then of course, when taken out you can add ice cream, yogurt, etc.
