Roasted Bananas

Nowadays, it's rare to find someone who isn't watching their weight. Someone who doesn't have little rules they set for themselves about when and what they're allowed to put into their mouths.
I, too, have been guilty of this folly from time to time. And my biggest cheat is to throw in a vegetable or a fruit and call it healthy.
Oh, a pile fried eggplant smothered in cheese? It's a vegetable, so it's healthy.
Oh, this caramel apple covered in chocolate, M&Ms and graham crackers? It's fruit, so it's healthy.
Let's not kid ourselves, folks.
That's why I'll openly start out by admitting that despite the fruit content, this recipe is unapologetically not healthy.
It's just delicious.

Now, I don't want to limit your creativity here, so don't feel like these are the only toppings you can use. BUT, if you want to recreate the chocolate monsters I made here, grab these ingredients:

1 banana
1 handfull chocolate chips
tin foil

Start by laying your banana flat on its side. Tear off a piece of the peel so that when the banana lies flat, its flesh is exposed upwards. 
Next, slather on some Nutella. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, marshmallows, or whatever else you see fit for your treat. 
Wrap the whole thing in tinfoil and stick it under the broiler for 3-5 minutes.
When it's done, you'll have an ooey gooey mushy warm banana covered in melty chocolate chips and warm Nutella.
