Chocolate-Marshmallow Banana Boats

Well it's a little early for National Banana Lover's Day (August 27) or the International Banana Festival (September 21). But just try this little snack/dessert idea anyway, and if you like it, tuck the recipe away for those special upcoming events.

Take one banana. Slit it down the middle, taking care not to go all the way through the underside of the peel. Stuff into the cavity as many chocolate chips and mini marshmallows as you can fit. Wrap it all in foil and put in the oven, set on broil, for 8 to 10 minutes. Open foil expectantly, and dive in with a spoon.

And remember, you're eating fruit! So it hardly counts as dessert, don't you think?

It's not as if I need another reason to eat chocolate--but this one does sound like a good excuse. Like you said, it's healthy.

We love bananas at our house, and of course, chocolate and marshmallows, too. Sounds so good. I'll have to try it.

You are some kind of wizard!

I am going to do this at my daughter's upcoming slumber party. We're inviting 12 little girls. Lord help us. I think I'll eat like a whole bunch of these.
