“We dont eat marshmallows due to the horse byproducts in them so this is something I fashioned to make up for the camp smores my kids cant have. They are decadent and delishious. For each serving you will need small squares of tin foil about 1 foot square Note recipe is for one serving I seem to be getting a lot of reviews that have nothing to do with this recipe but objections to my discription. So as I cant respond to the reviews, I will clarify here. Gelatin contains connective tissues of pigs, cows, horses, and if you get the kosher variety fish. Marshmallows contain gelatin. I am adding the following links for your purusal. I am saddened that my ratings are being affected by a misunderstanding. Even if you dont like my discription it would be nice to know if you like the recipe which is really the important part of this> I offered this recipe that my children and friends really like for your enjoyment. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/533769 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelatin its good to know your ingredients”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 whole banana, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam or 2 tablespoons raspberry jam
  • 3 -4 arrowroot cookies or 3 -4 animal crackers
  • 14 cup chocolate chips
  • 14 cup juice (optional) or 14 cup wine (optional)


  1. All ingredients are approximate. I usually just measure with my eyes or hands it always comes out just great.
  2. fold up the edges of the tin foil squares.
  3. cut bananas in half lengthwise and place on tinfoil a couple inches apart.
  4. crush cookies and spread between the bananas.
  5. spread dollops of the jam over the cookie crumbs.
  6. sprinkle with chocolate chips and then juice (or wine for the adult version) just to moisten the mixture.
  7. fold over the tinfoil and seal to make little pouches. place along the edge of your cook fire turning occasionally for about 15-30 minutes.
  8. I usually place these in the fire as I am serving supper and then they are ready when we are done eating supper.
  9. open the packets carefully to avoid steam burns and eat straight from the packets.
