Grilled Banana Boats
- 6 bananas
- 6 tbsp (90 mL) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 6 tbsp (90 mL) miniature marshmallows
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped pecans
Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium heat.
Place bananas on BBQ Corn & Skewer Rack. Using Petite Paring Knife, make a deep lengthwise cut along inside curve of each banana, being careful not to cut all the way through. Open slit to form a pocket.
Fill each pocket with 2 tbsp (30 mL) chocolate morsels and 2 tbsp (30 mL) marshmallows. Top with ½ tsp (2 mL) pecans, if desired. Press ingredients gently into pockets.
Place Rack on grid of grill. Cover; grill 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are light golden brown.

To bake in oven, preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil (22 in./56 cm) directly under Rack. Place Rack directly on oven rack. Bake 6-7 minutes or until marshmallows are light golden brown.
You may substitute semi-sweet chocolate morsels with peanut butter morsels.
Even though the skin of the banana turns black on the grill, the fruit on the inside stays a golden yellow color.
