Cooking with Mickey & Friends: Banana Boats

The weather promises to be warm and beautiful for the Memorial Day Holiday weekend, so I thought I'd post this fun recipe for King Louie's Banana Boats from one of my 'Theme" Cookbooks: Cooking with Mickey and Friends by Pat Baird. You'll "go ape" over these. Perfect for the Barbecue -- or oven. They're fun to make with the kids.

Since we barbecue all year round, I often make these on the grill, but you can just as easily follow the directions and make them in the toaster oven.

And, as Mickey reminds us, Bananas are a good source of potassium and carbohydrates. Use a good dark chocolate (broken up) or high quality dark chocolate chips, and you're adding antioxidants. You can make your own marshmallows, too, or not :-) You'll love King Louie's Banana Boats. You'll want to make more than one!

I was so excited to see your link for Cookbook Wednesday, Janet, thank YOU for joining!!!

What a fun recipe you have shared from Cooking with Mickey & Friends. I do have a few Cooking with Mickey cookbooks but I'm not sure about this one. (the titles are so similar, lol...)

I wouldn't think to make King Louie's Banana Boats on the grill but now that you mention it, hmmmmm

Thanks so much for sharing, Janet and thanks for "playing."

My pleasure. These banana boats are great fun. My great nephew is a Mickey & Minnie fan, so they're perfect for him.
