Kids of all ages love these. They make great leftovers. Stick the barbecued banana, foil and all in the freezer for a delectable frozen indulgence!
3 Ripe bananas 6 Squares of aluminum foil, measuring approximately 8″ X 8″

- 1-1/2 cups blueberries
- 1-1/2 cups strawberries

Place on the barbecue for 3-5 minutes, until the candies and marshmallows have melted. Remove from barbecue. Unwrap and enjoy. Use caution when opening the aluminum foil wrapper, as some steam may escape. Top with whipping cream or ice cream.
Conventional Oven: You can also make barbecued banana splits in a conventional oven. Bake at 400° for 4 minutes.
I don’t know where my mom came up with these, but I have enjoyed them since I was little. They are great to do before s’mores, then you know that the kids have had something other than sugar before bed. I did these at a Church campout and the kids were just amazed. hot dogs (the kind that come 8 or 10 in a pack)
You’ll need a knife and some roasting forks or sticks. Cut the ends of each hot dog into quarters leaving about 1-1/2 to 2 inches in the middle uncut. You want to leave enough uncut to stick the fork in.
Roast the dogs over the fire or hot coals in a grill. The “legs” will curl out as the hot dogs cook. You can also do them in the kitchen at home over a hot stove burner.
