Bananas and chocolate on the fire.


In 2008 when I first tasted a chocolate filled banana cooked on a fire I was amazed at just how tasty it was. I hoped that some day I would be able to try cooking this with my nursery class & when we got our Haba outdoor fire it was one of the many things we attempted to cook with the class. 3 years on, it was time to introduce this culinary delight to a whole new class. They were allowed to put 2 squares of chocolate and 2 mini marshmallows into their banana - they all chose to put both into them. These don't take very long on a hot fire and after around 10-15 minutes they were ready to eat. 
In hindsight, the fact that most of the children don't eat bananas, it was ambitious to assume they would eat them this way - they all did try them, I think the lure of the chocolate tempted them but the majority didn't actually like them. However, 7 children and myself thoroughly enjoyed every bit of them!
Not one scrap of banana left!
I think we'll stick to toast & teacakes with this class - though we are going to try beans next week!

  1. I find your blog these days! it’s top notch, now following, thank you a gaggle for doing this huge effort for coaching others,I'm a professional resume writers My opinion is they saved having to vanish into the workplace to jot down copious notes as they discovered how our day unfolded. I had two at a time every day, so that one should stay inside the classroom at the same time as the alternative went off to jot down up notes.
