Roasted bananas stuffed with chocolate candy bars. Similar to the traditional campfire treat, but even better!
If you find yourself with some leftover Halloween candy, I have a great, easy, recipe for you. These banana boats are a take on the traditional campfire treat. Usually, they are made by stuffing a banana with chocolate chips, and then roasting it over a fire. But, instead of chocolate chips, I stuffed these with chopped chocolate candy bars (!!!).
Since I didn’t have a campfire, I just roasted them in the oven. Let me tell you, these are even better than the original. Warm bananas filled with melty chocolate candy bars – what’s not to love?! There’s no reason this delicious treat should only be enjoyed while camping!
Go ahead and stuff these with whatever chocolate candy you have. I used Snickers, peanut butter cups, M & M’s and Krackel bars. There are lots of combinations that would be equally delicious. Don’t be alarmed by the fact that the skin on the bananas will turn brown once cooked. Just grab yourself a spoon and dig in. These are best eaten while still warm. Mmmmm…
And because I can’t resist…here is my race car driver and candy corn cutie! 🙂 Have a fun, and safe Halloween!Never miss a recipe – Subscribe to receive my recipes via email, or follow along on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+.
Candy Bar Banana Boats
- 4 ripe slightly firm bananas
- 1 cup chopped chocolate candy (I used Snickers, peanut butter cups, M & M's and Krackel bars)
Preheat oven to 375°
Make a half-inch cut lengthwise along the inside curve of each banana, being careful not to cut all the way through. Use the knife to open the banana just slightly, to create a cavity for the filling. Place each banana on a piece of foil, and crimp and shape the foil around the banana to hold it (the banana should be cut side up).
Fill each banana with approximately 1/4 cup of chopped candy. Place the bananas in a baking dish. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, until the bananas have softened and the candy has melted. Eat while warm.
