These delicious, warm bananas are great on camp-outs or in the backyard. You can eat them right out of the foil bowl. Cleanup is easy, too. —Sheila Parker, Reno, Nevada

"We have not tried these with trail mix before so will have to try that. We do use a mix of chocolate chips and either peanut butter or butterscotch. They are even better than with just the plain chocolate chips."

"These are great to do on the grill. I have another tip for all those bananas that seem to ripen overnight. Toss them in the freezer peel and all. They look terrible and are black but it doesn't hurt them a bit. When ready to use take out as many as needed, toss them in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, depends on wattage of microwave and then proceed to use them in your recipe. No waste, no fuss and convenient."

"We used to make these all the time when I was younger and camped a lot with Scouts. It was a "must have" on every camping trip! Easy and fun. Now I make them at home in the oven."
