Grilled Banana Boats!

Yummy summertime dessert!

Our power was out for the most of the day into the evening yesterday, so we put this on the grill and enjoyed it al fresco. Works for me! =)

What you need:
chocolate chips
chopped nuts {optional}
aluminum foil

How to put them together:
Slice bananas down the center and leave the peel on. Place marshmallows and chocolate chips down in the center of the banana. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in warm grill for 10 minutes or so. {The banana peel will turn black- this is okay, it's supposed to.} Eat and Enjoy!

If I would have remembered, crushed pecans {my favorite!} would have been put on top of them.
