Melted chocolate bananas is the closest you’re going to get to banoffee pie on the barbecue and if you’re a true chocoholic then maybe melted chocolate bananas are the perfect way to end a BBQ cookout.
The beauty of doing grilled bananas is that the skin acts as a natural protection from the heat of the grill so you can set a few off over a gentle heat while you enjoy your main meal.
TIP – When making the incision in the banana, make it along the “inside” bend of the banana so that there’s less chance of the melted chocolate oozing out.

A bar of chocolate
Take a rolling pin and smash up the unwrapped chocolate bar to create lots of bits and pieces.
Using a sharp knife make one incision down the length of each banana, gently ease the flesh away from the skin and then stuff the chocolate around the outside of the flesh.
You can use a cocktail stick to shore up the incision in the banana skin if you wish and then simply place the grilled bananas over the embers and go and enjoy your main course whilst everything begins to soften.
To serve, simply plate up the melted chocolate bananas, remove the cocktail stick and let everyone open up their little bundle of delight.
