Banana Boats

Banana boats are a classic camp favorite. They are easy to make and don’t require many ingredients. Enjoy some while spending an evening around a campfire.

These are ooey gooey and filled with chocolate and marshmallows. Even your youngest campers can have fun putting them together.

You can use chocolate chips or candy bars chopped into pieces. For a different twist, try using a Snickers bar. Suggest your own additions in the comments below.
