Subject: Campfire Desert

If you're looking for a non-DO dessert, may I suggest (as I have in the past)
banana boats? Split a banana leaving the skin, open to create a "boat," put
mini marshmallows and squares of a Hershey's chocolate bar in it, a couple of
drops of almond extract for taste, wrap in foil and cook in coals until the
banana meat is soft. Spoon out of the boat to eat. A troop favorite.

A hint for ease in construction and deconstruction <G>: When you slice your
bananas, do it with the banana on its side on a table top, not with the banana
in the "smile" position. Decreases the chances of the blade going thru the
skin on the other side while cupped in your hand, lies flat for filling and
eating, and also keeps the stuffings from oozing out quite as easily while cooking.
Pretend it's a croissant, not a watermelon slice, if you get my drift.
