    I made these in the oven. Soo good! I put a little bit of finely chopped pecans on mine so I can get that crunch like the graham cracker would give you. So delicious!

    Us Girl Scouts call that a banana boat.

    Can you use the broiler in the wintertime? I'm assuming you can, but would you leave the banana peel open so the heat can brown the marshmellows?

    We just had our Fall campout and had our 50+ scouts and their families make these for an after dinner treat. The boys assembled the "banana boat" as an activity before dinner and used a Sharpie to write their names on the foil. We built a separate charcoal firepit to cook them and all the boys enjoyed them while we sat around the campfire and told stories, did skits and sang songs. It was a great departure from traditional smores which we've done for many years. Great activity.

    @Luke, good question! The answer is Yes. After you finish grilling the banana that has been partially peeled, peel the rest of the banana and enjoy your treat by the campfire! :-)

    I'm pretty sure you do, but do you finish peeling the banana, when it's time to eat it?
