    1. Cut 1 (12-inch) sheet of heavy-duty foil. Heat gas or charcoal grill, to 350°F.
    2. With sharp knife, make deep lengthwise cut along inside curve of each banana, being careful not to cut all the way through. Open slit to form pocket. Crimp and shape 1 sheet of foil around each banana, forming boats.
    3. Holding banana in hand, have kids choose and fill bananas with desired fillings. Return each banana to its foil boat. Seal top of foil, leaving 2 to 3 inches headspace. Place on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until marshmallows soften.
