Campfire Banana "Samoas"

Serves: 4
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


4 extra ripe bananas
4 tablespoons caramel sauce, store-bought or homemade
4 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut


Build a medium campfire.

Use a knife to cut out a 1-inch-wide strip of the banana peel almost the entire length of the banana. Leave the ends intact and the rest of the peel still attached. Cut a seam down the center of the banana for filling. Fill each seam with caramel sauce, then top with chocolate chips and coconut. Tightly wrap with a double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil, and place near the fire at the base. Cook until bananas are soft and hot, 10 minutes. Serve.
