Directions

  1. Choose a variation. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).  

  2. Lay bananas on Cutting Board. Trim banana stems. Using Petite Paring Knife, make a small cut at the stem end of each banana. Pull off top half of each banana peel, leaving the bottom of the peel intact. Using loop end of Core & More, scoop out enough banana to create a well (see Cook’s Tips). Arrange bananas in Shallow Baker

  3. Prepare filling and combine in (3-cup/750-mL) Prep Bowl. Using Small Scoop, evenly fill bananas with filling. Bake 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are light golden brown.

The loop end of the Core & More fits in the banana perfectly and creates the right size well. See step 2. 

Even though the skin of the banana turns black during baking, the fruit on the inside stays a golden yellow color.
