These Campfire Chocolate Bananas are cooked in the coals after being stuffed with marshmallows and chocolate for a rocky road twist! Kids and adults will love this sweet and sticky treat.
If you are looking to add some theatrics to your next outdoor dessert try flambe bananas. The flames will grab everyone’s attention yet the recipe is still simple and very tasty.
Bananas are not always the easiest ingredient to travel with so would consider meal planning this towards the beginning of a long trip.
The recipe suggests brandy or rum, but you can exchange for other alcohols that you may have on the campsite already, but note it is a big factor in the final flavor.
1 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons orange juice or lemon juice
1 tablespoon brandy or rum
Peel and quarter the bananas. This should be done at the last possible moment so the bananas don’t brown or soften.
In the small skillet (or frying pan) add the brown sugar and butter gently mixing or stirring as it melts.
When the butter and sugar have completely melted add the orange or lemon juice, the acid in this stops the sugar from crystalizing and keeps it as a smooth sauce.
Add the bananas and cover with the sugar syrup, when starting to heat through tun over and cook the other side.
Shortly after turning the bananas add the brandy and heat so the alcohol starts to evaporate off. Tilt the pan towards the gas flame and it will catch fire causing the flambe. Serve immediately.
