Caramel Baked Bananas

Introduction: Caramel Baked Bananas

Caramel baked bananas are a staple whenever I go camping! They are easy, tasty and great to warm you on a cold evening. This recipe can also be done in the warm comfort of your own home with these simple steps.



Bananas - firmer bananas require more time and larger bananas can fit more filling.

candy of your choice, chocolates with caramel allow it to live up to its name I personally used curly wurly's as they are thin (easy to fit in the banana) and also they can be bought where I live in the UK however. anything you can fit in will wor amazingly.
