Summer means sticky. There is just no way to avoid the heinous heat and humidity that comes with August in my part of Texas. Sticky, sticky, sticky, it can make a mother grouchy if she lets it! I keep my parental cool when summer temps and the kids’ tempers flare with a toolbox of tactics to chill out.  Yup, let’s stay in our bathing suits all day long, crank up the songs of summer, eat easy clean up desserts and, by all means, stay out of the kitchen (I’d hate to heat up the house)!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Banana boats are an easy, foil-packet recipe that kids love for taste and moms love for easy clean up (and extra fruit as dessert)!My boys have been clamoring for chocolate chip cookies, but no way I’m turning on the oven!  Despite the heat, they want a summer treat that is warm and gooey – Chocolate Covered Strawberry Banana Boats are the solution.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Banana Boats and Wet Naps  go hand in hand!

The only clean up after diving face first into this ooey-gooey foil-packet dessert are messy mouths and sticky fingers. Yay,  Wet-Nap® Hands, Face, & Body Cleansing Wipes.  These wipes are one of the most multi-purposed, genius products of summer living. I started using Wet-Nap®  when the kids were toddlers, but now they’re teens – and just as messy! Safe on the face, body and hands, these wipes are awesome after stick recipes like the banana boats, but also a great way to refresh after running, working out and sitting in the fan stands watching the kids’ sports in sweltering heat. I keep a container in the car, my gym bag and purse!

Kids, Messy Desserts and Wet Naps

 

Wet-Nap® help tidy messes that life throws at us every day – this includes easy clean up desserts and easy clean up recipes and easy clean up crafts (just imaging the convenience for toddlers who like to finger paint). Also, as a food blogger, using Wet-Nap® products is a great way to keep my camera from getting too gunked up — snapping photos while food styling ALWAY make for messy buttons (don’t use on the lens, though)!Wet Naps are a must for a food blogger's camera!

I never forget to toss a pack of Wet-Nap® wipes into my cart on Walmart shopping trips. Visit Walmart for all your Wet-Nap® needs: 110-Count Hands, Face, & Body Cleansing Wipes, 24-Count Packettes Antibacterial Hand Wipes and 40-Count Canister Antibacterial Hand Wipes.

Instructions
  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill to approximately 400°F or use a wire rack over campfire.
  2. Cut 4 (1-foot) sheets of heavy-duty foil, set aside.
  3. Using a sharp knife, make a deep incision lengthwise along the top curve of each banana; take care not to cut through the bottom peel. Gently push both banana ends toward each other to create a pocket. Place banana on the center diagonal of tin foil.
  4. Stuff each banana with approximately 2 tablespoons each of marshmallows, chopped strawberries and chocolate chips.
  5. Pull up corners of tin foil to create a tent over the top of banana, leaving a few inches of headroom so marshmallows won’t melt all over the foil.
  6. Place banana packets on heat source, close lid and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until marshmallows are softened.
  7. Carefully remove banana packets and open foil. Banana skins may have turned brown; however, this does not affect taste. Drizzle each banana with warmed strawberry glaze and sprinkle with almonds. Eat warm.

  1. I love Wet Naps, in fact I just used them .. I am on a flight bound for LA and I am wiping down my tray table and surrounding areas. Your boys are so handsome! I bet they love to eat all of your creations, especially this one! Yum

    • Aww thanks Lisa I have another boy not in the picture — he’s the movie star, ham type! These two were a little bashful to get involved in the photos!
