2cupsVanilla Ice Cream(store bought or your favorite recipe)
1Tbsp Caramel Sauce
Lay each banana (with the peel on) on a sheet of aluminium foil, folding it slightly so the banana stands on its curve with the ends pointing up, like a boat. Cut the bananas in half long-wise with a sharp knife, careful not to cut all the way through the bottom peel.
Pull apart the banana halves slightly, and fill with the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Drizzle with caramel sauce.
Wrap the topped banana in the foil completely. Cook your banana boats in one of three ways:Bake: Preheat oven to 350F and bake for 10 minutes, placing bananas directly on the oven rackGrill: Add wrapped bananas to the grill and close, cooking for about 10 minutes.Campfire: Toss wrapped bananas into a late night campfire, which has more embers that flames. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the chocolate has melted.
Carefully unwrap, and cut each banana in half cross-wise. Unpeel and place the bananas in a small glass dish. Top with the ice cream, caramel sauce, and whipped cream.
Each of the three cooking methods will create a slightly different flavor profile for your bananas. The oven is the most neutral, and I think the campfire is the best!
Feel free to add additional toppings to your sundaes such as chocolate syrup, marshmallow sauce, rainbow sprinkles, and maraschino cherries!
