Campfire Bananas Foster

Serves: 4
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


4 extra ripe bananas
1/3 cup caramel sauce, store-bought or homemade


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. Evenly divide caramel inside the seams and over the top of each banana. Tightly wrap in a double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil and place bananas near the base of the fire. Cook until bananas are soft and caramel is bubbling, 10 minutes. Unwrap and serve.
