Using tip of paring knife, slice bananas open lengthwise (the long way), open bananas, and wrap in foil (following photos, below).
Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly inside bananas, then sprinkle marshmallows on top of chocolate chips. Transfer assembled banana boats to 8-inch square baking dish.
Place baking dish in oven. Bake until marshmallows are golden brown and chocolate chips have melted, 12 to 15 minutes.
The inspiration for this easy, crowd-pleasing dessert came from cooking over campfires! As Girl and Boy Scouts, we used to open bananas, add chocolate and marshmallows, wrap them completely in foil, and throw them into a fire to cook. Those S’mores Banana Boats were a little messier and not quite as pretty as ours today, but they were just as delicious. These bananas are roasted until they’re just soft and scoopable, the chocolate is melted, and the marshmallows are toasty. The graham cracker crumbs give them a nice little crunch!
