S’more Pots That Serve 12


• One 14.5-ounce package of whole graham crackers, crushed
• One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
• 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
• 2 cups mini marshmallows
• 1 cup butterscotch chips
• ½ cup butter melted

Step 1: Prepare the grill for low heat.

Step 2: Use heavy-duty aluminum foil to line a Dutch oven. Combine butter and crushed graham crackers and press this mixture on top of the foil.

Step 3: Pour the milk over the crust created in Step 1. Sprinkle butterscotch and chocolate chips on top and pour marshmallows on top of the chips.

Step 4: Cover the Dutch oven and place it directly on six briquettes that are covered by white ash. Place approximately 12 briquettes on top of the Dutch oven cover.

Step 5: Grill until the chips have melted, approximately 15 minutes, using tongs to lift the Dutch oven cover to check for doneness. Serve warm.

Hot, Fast Banana Boats


• 4 large bananas, unpeeled
• ¼ cup mini marshmallows
• 8 teaspoons trail mix
• 8 teaspoons semisweet chocolate chips

Step 1: Cut off four squares of foil, each measuring 12 inches. Put a banana on each foil square. Shape and crimp the foil around each banana so it rests flat.

Step 2: Make a ½-inch deep cut lengthwise down each banana but leave ½-inch uncut at each end. Pull the peel cut on each banana to open the area, creating a pocket on each banana. Fill this pocket with trail mix, marshmallows, and chocolate chips.

Step 3: Grill the bananas on medium heat until the marshmallows have melted and turn golden brown, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Serve warm.
