Recipe Swap: Grilled S'mores-Stuffed Bananas!

I have not yet tried this recipe, but I promise I will before the summer is out. Believe it or not, hubby found this one in our local newspaper. That in its self tells me I have to do it, he never brings me recipes!

1/2 Cup mini chocolate chips
2 graham cracker squares, finely crumbled
4 unpeeled bananas, ripe but still slightly firm
1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Heat a gas grill to medium-high or prepare a charcoal fire.

In a bowl, stir together the chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs.

Lay the bananas on their side on a flat surface. Cut a 3/4 inch slit from tip to tip along what is now the top side of the banana. Pry open each slit just enough to push in one quarter of the chocolate chip mixture into the banana. Stuff marshmallows into each slit.

Wrap each banana snugly in foil, making a seam above the filled opening.

Turn off one side of the grill. Place the bananas, seam up, over the cooler side. Cover and grill for 15 minutes, or until the banana feels very soft when squeezed with an oven mitt. Serve immediately with a spoon for scooping the mixture out of the peel!
