Ingredients

  • 4 ripe yellow bananas
  • 1 cup mini-marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • Type of fire: two-zone indirect
  • Grill heat: medium-high

Directions

  1. 1.

    In the peel, slice banana lengthwise, being careful not to slice all the way through the banana. Pry open sliced pocket and stuff with 1/4 of the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Top with 1/4 of the marshmallows. Repeat with remaining 3 bananas.

  2. 2.

    Light one chimney 2/3 full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and arrange the coals on one side of the charcoal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate. Place bananas on cool side of grill, cover, and cook until bananas have completely softened and peels have blackened, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from grill, let cool for 5 minutes, then eat with a spoon.
