Cook's Tips:

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.
