Gooey chocolate baked bananas
Assemble the bananas as above, adding 25g mini marshmallows with the chocolate, then cook as before and serve with ice cream.


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 (or a BBQ). Make a slit through the skin of the bananas along one side – making sure you don’t cut all the way through to the other side. Poke in the chocolate buttons along the cut. Put each banana onto a sheet of foil and crimp the edges together to seal into a parcel. Transfer to a baking sheet and cook for 25 mins until the bananas have turned black (or pop straight into the BBQ embers for 15 mins).

  2. Serve with a scoop of ice cream and any melted chocolate that has escaped!
