Banana S'mores

It hit me today. You know, that little nudge from somewhere deep inside that says, "It's time for chocolate." You try to push the thought away knowing your waistline certainly doesn't need anything. But then the big, angry, PMS voice comes in loud and clear, "GIVE ME CHOCOLATE NOW!" So of course, you hop right up and oblige. We don't mess with PMS around here. ;) Trying to be somewhat "good" about giving in so easily to this craving, I decided I was going to add some fruit to the mix. I'm sure you've seen these floating around on Pinterest. They were super easy, quick, and hit the spot for that little craving of mine.

Ingredients: 2 large marshmallows, cut in 8ths 1/8 c mini chocolate chips 1 ripe banana, peeled

Directions: Slice open the banana, try to leave it in tact on the bottom; don't cut all the way through. If you do, it's not that big of a deal. Open it up, sprinkle it with your marshmallows and chocolate chips.

Wrap it up in foil and bake at 400 degrees for 6 minutes or until chocolate is melted and marshmallows are gooey.

Open it up, and eat it with a spoon!

Note:  The ends of my banana were a little overdone and didn't taste very good. If the banana is a darker shade than the rest, then it's probably best not to eat that spot.  ;)
