Camp recipe: Banana s'mores

Don't get us wrong, we love a classic s'more. Nothing beats a melty marshmallow smothered in chocolate and topped with a crispy graham cracker...until now. Take your s'more to the next level by packing those ingredients into a banana and toasting it your campfire. trust us, it will be the thing you talk about long after your camping trip is over.

You'll need:

  • Tin foil
  • Spoon
  • Long tongs


  • Ripe banana
  • Chocolate bar
  • Masrhmallows
  • Graham cracker (optional)


  • Ignite your fire source, this includes building your campfire in a designated fire ring, starting your coals or setting your propane grill to medium-low heat.
  • Cut a slit down the long side on your banana
  • Take a spoon dig it about half way into the banana through the slit and create a channel for your other ingredients. Save any bits of banana you remove.
  • Break your chocolate bar into small pieces and place insode the channel you've created. We all love chocolate, but save enough room for your marshmallow!
  • Tear your marshmallow into fourths and squish the pieces into the channel where you can.
  • Take your dug out banana bits and press them over the top of the filled channel.
  • Wrap your stuffed banana tightly in tin foil.
  • Place the banana on your campfire or BBQ grate, or down in the coals. Let it toast one one side for 2-3 minutes and then flip with your tongs.
  • Carefully remove your banana from the heat with your tongs and let cool until it is safe to unwrap the tinfoil.
  • Gently put pressure on the stem and butt ends of the banana to open the slit and expose the melty innards.

Ways to enjoy:

  • Crumble graham cracker over the melty goodness and enjoy it by the spoonful.
  • Spoon out the innards onto a graham cracker and make it into a sandwich like you would a traditional s'more
  • Skip the graham cracker altogether and dig in!
