Banana s’more

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 10 minutes

1 medium-size, firm, ripe banana (about 6 ounces)
2 teaspoons mini semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon miniature marshmallows
1/8 cup graham bear cookies (or 1/2 graham cracker square, broken into pieces)

Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel back, but do not remove, an inch-wide strip of banana peel. Cut a slit along the length of the banana. Be careful not to cut all the way through the banana. Push the chocolate chips down into the slit in the banana, then push in the marshmallows and graham bear cookies. Replace the strip of banana peel. Wrap the banana in aluminum foil. Turn off the oven. Put the banana in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the marshmallows begin to melt. Eat with a spoon while warm.
