Happy Friday! I am so excited to have THE Laura Kelly as a Guest Contributor today! How cool is this? I recently had the pleasure of finally meeting Laura in person at SNAP and let me tell you, she is just as charming and gracious as you would expect! I have been following her work for a while, so naturally I am over the moon to have her here on my blog!
Without further adieu…take it away Laura!
Hi there! This is Laura Kelly here guest posting something super yummy and fun for you today.
I picked today because it is special. It is Chocolate Chip Day! For Real. Chocolate Chip Day is a thing and one I find worth celebrating. I am excited to share this fun recipe for chocolate chip banana boats. They are easy peasy to make and delicious. Kids LOVE to make them, especially when they can be baked in the coals of a campfire!
Chocolate Chip Banana Boat Recipe
You will need bananas (of course), aluminum foil and chocolate chips. If you want to add more toppings, the possibilities are endless. You can add caramels, marshmallows, nuts and sprinkles!
Okay, let’s make one! Start out with these three steps.
- Cut your banana open like you would a baked potato.
- Mush the banana part up without cutting into the peel.
- Fill it with chocolate chips.
Wrap it in foil to bake. If you are doing it in the oven, 10 minutes at 350 degrees works like a charm. In a campfire, it totally depends on the heat!
When it comes out, it will be a banana chocolate mush-fest.
The last thing to do is add your extra toppings. I added caramel sauce, whipped cream and EXTRA chocolate chips to this one. Don’t you wish you could take a bite?
Oh yeah, the Chocolate Chip Day piece is HERE. It’s a free printable that you can download and cut out to add to your chocolate chip delights today.
Cheers to special days that involve chocolate!
