Desserts by the Firepit

Despite the cold temperatures, we enjoyed awesome desserts by the fire!  We had Banana Boats and Smores!!  Some residents watched by the window as their banana boat was cooking on the fire and a few actually went out for a few minutes to sit by the fire and enjoy that wonderful smell. No one had ever had Banana Boats, so here’s the recipe.  Enjoy.

Banana Boat Ingredients:

  • Banana
  • Chocolate chips (peanut butter, butterscotch, white,)
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Heavy duty aluminum foil

Cut your banana down the middle. Leave it in the peal. Stuff with chocolate and marshmallows. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in hot coals for about 3 – 7 minutes (depending on how hot your fire is). Turn and rotate often.
