Barbecue banana with chocolate
( SERVES 4 )

This is our youngest cousin Enoka's favourite. We wrap the bananas in tin foil and add delicious toppings. Place them on the barbecue and when they are nice and hot and the chocolate has melted we like to add a big scoop of icecream. Use whatever flavours you like. Our Dad likes chocolate and jersey caramels, aunties always go for berries and Enoka loves chocolate sauce, peanut butter and marshmallows. Get creative!
- Remove the bananas from their skin. Cut along one side of the banana 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 on to a sheet of foil and fold the edges together to seal into a parcel. Bake on the barbecue for 12 minutes or until all of the chocolate has melted.
- Gently open each banana and place a large scoop of icecream on top followed by a drizzle of the caramel sauce and sprinkle of nuts.
