Just got some great new brochures in today! Look for them in tourism offices and stores across Ontario!
When mentioning this to people most ask "what is that?!". This recipe dates back when scouts and girl guides first came on the scene and is a classic campfire treat i would like to share.
What you need:
- Aluminum Foil
- Cooking Spray
- Chocolate Chips (your fav flavour!)
- Mini Marshmallows
When your at home you can help the preparation process by lightly spraying cooking spray on the foil. Fold foil so that the oil does not get everywhere but is easily able to unfold*. Grab your large container and place your foil, bananas, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows inside. The container helps to preserve the contents and can be useful later on for leftovers or lunches.
When your ready to eat them, take out a banana and slice it lengthwise, being careful not to slice all the way through, with the peel left on. Carefully pack the opening with your marshmallows and chocolate and wrap in the tin foil. Cook over fire until chocolate has melted.
*I fold it in doubles placing the oiled side together to make a sandwich. Then fold it so none escapes into the container.
After spending a few summers and winters facilitating the Duke of Edinburgh reward program I thought I would give them a mention. This program has been a great benefit to people ages 14-24 for over 50 years! They challenge youth in the outdoors to learn new skills and set personal goals in a fun experiential way. After seeing youth grow over the years i would encourage more youth to take this challenge! This rewarding program has also been seen helping students with their college/university applications. If you live in the Muskoka area we would also be happy to help you out with all the materials you need to start your adventure! A full overview can be found at www.dukeofed.org.
