BBQ Chocolate Bananas

Font Size:

Very few food combinations are as satisfying as bananas and chocolate. If you’re looking for a BBQ dessert which will delight young and old alike, you need look no further.

(Serves eight)
4 large bananas
200g chocolate buttons
Ice cream to serve

Cut small slits in the skin of each banana, deep enough to cut through part of the banana as well.
Insert a chocolate button into each slit.
Individually wrap each banana in tin foil and place on a hot BBQ.
Grill for 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally.
Once the chocolate has melted into the banana, remove from grill.
Unwrap and cut each banana in half.
Serve with ice cream.

    Goodness that takes me back to my Girl Guiding days, we made these on our open fires when camping. Sadly my camping days are over and I had forgotten these little treasures. Alas we had no ice cream but I can remember that melted chocolate Yum

    Talking of food, when I was in the Royal Signals stationed in W. Germany, we used to get Wall’s skinless pork sausages in our iron rations. I think they were the best sausages ever made. I have never found any in all the shops and stores I’ve been in. Really miss them!!

    Political correctness gone mad. Those who pursue this crap should take the time to do useful things which would benefit the community. Continual bleating of negatives and “I am upset” gets us nowhere. Take the P/Cs out into the desert and leave them there.
