I made a banana boat the other day--a combination, in this case, of white chocolate chips, semisweet chips, and mini marshmallows in a partially sliced banana. I'd never even heard of one til that evening, but was intrigued. I removed every other slice of banana and then filled the spaces with the chips and marshmallows. The filled banana was then placed under the broiler for a few seconds--possibly one second too many in this case, though the banana turned black right off anyhow. Once it had cooled slightly, I passed the broiled black banana boat to one 12-year-old, who inhaled it once it happily.
I've had the Banana Boat song going through my head ever since.
