Banana S’mores

After a recent chat with Christina from Christina’s Cucina we got talking about S’mores, a term I have seen crop up so many times on Twitter courtesy of all the American food bloggers I follow. I always wondered where the word originated from and whether it was a take on the Danish word for butter “smør”. Well it turns out I was totally wrong and the term stems from the words “some more” Christina informed me! The original S’more is a camp fire snack (popular in America and Canada) and consists of 2 Graham crackers sandwiched together with toasted marshmallow and chocolate – there are many reincarnations of a S’more however! Being a huge fan of bananas I decided one night to “s’moreify” a couple after a BBQ. Well I say a couple, I did one and after my daughter saw it she had to have one too and loved it. A week later we had them again when I didn’t have anything planned for dessert and this time I just stuck them under the grill. This really is one of the easiest yet most delicious puddings you can make in under 10 minutes.

Banana S’mores remind me of little Viking Ships!

I think this is the ideal dessert for when you’re camping or caravanning and perfect for BBQ’s or cooking over a bonfire. Once you have removed the slither of banana skin then your kids can have fun decorating the banana with the chocolate and marshmallows (like my daughter did above but remind them the banana is hot)! Then you just let the heat from the banana turn the chocolate and marshmallows into molten gorgeousness! My daughter enjoyed a bit of extra indulgence by having chocolate ice cream with hers but I find it lush enough on its own.

A hot banana cooked in it's skin to which chocolate and mini marshmallows are added to form a molten gooey and very tasty treat! Perfect outdoor cooking food!

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 handful dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 handful mini marshmallows (vegan ones if needed)
  1. Grill or BBQ your banana until black on all sides.
  2. Once ready put on a plate and make an incision with a sharp knife near to the stalk.
  3. Peel back and remove one section of banana skin.
