  • bananas 4 ripe
  • dark chocolate chips 50g
  • mini marshmallows 25g
  • digestive biscuits 4, crushed
  • mixed nuts chopped
  • whipped cream or ice cream to serve
  • maraschino cherries 4, optional


  • Step 1

    Cut the bananas along one side through the peel so you start to cut into the flesh, but don’t go all the way through. Gently open out along the cut to make a small pocket for the fillings. Stuff the bananas with the chocolate chips and marshmallows, then double-wrap in foil, leaving a small gap where the fillings are to allow the marshmallows to expand.

  • Step 2

    Put the banana parcels into a cooler part of the coals of the barbecue, or in the oven at 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the parcels are soft when gently pressed.

  • Step 3

    Open the foil parcels to reveal the blackened bananas, then top with the crushed biscuits, the nuts, whipped cream or ice cream and a cherry, if you like.
