Grilled Banana S'mores

In an effort to beat the heat this summer – I have been doing tons of grilling.  So I was really intrigued when I saw this recipe – since I have never made dessert on the grill before (although grilled peaches are high on my list to make – I know I’m missing out not trying that!).  Not only do you grill the bananas to get them nice and caramelized – you cook the graham cracker crust and chocolate/marshmallows right on the grill too.  I ended up finishing this with my kitchen torch – just to get the charred top – but these were a really nice after dinner treat!  Enjoy!



  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg yolk


  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 2 medium bananas, firm but ripe
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 – 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat the grill on medium heat.

2. In a large bowl, combine the crust ingredients and mix well.  Press into a 8x8 inch baking pan. 

3. Grill the crust on indirect medium heat (no directly on the flame) with the lid closed.  One firm and lightly browned – about 6-8 minutes, remove crust from grill and set aside to cool.

3.  In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and 1 Tbsp. of melted butter.  Cut each banana in half lengthwise, leaving the skins attached.  Brush the cut sides with the butter/sugar mixture.

4.  Grill the bananas directly over medium heat, until they soften – 2-4 minutes.  Set aside and let cool.  Then slice into cubes.

5. Fill the pan with 2 cups of marshmallows, top with bananas and half of the chips.  Then top with the rest of the marshmallows and chips.

6. Grill over indirect heat with the lid closed – until the marshmallows have puffed up and start to brown 5-7 minutes.  Using a kitchen torch – brown the tops of the marshmallows. 

7. Serve warm and spoon into bowls.
