Halloween Week Sweet Treats: Grilled Bananas Foster

In honor of Halloween, that annual celebration of candy and costumes, this week’s recipes will be chock full of sweet and delicious temptations.

While it may be getting cold, the snow hasn’t yet fallen where I live. My grill still has gas and I haven’t covered it yet, so there is still time to make this amazing grilled treat. There are a few versions of this recipe floating around the Internet, but I like this one the best because it has both rum and Kahlua. rum bananas cinnamon sticks

Recipe makes 4 packets of yummy gooey goodness. You can share or keep one to yourself, I won’t judge.

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup rum
1/2 cup Kahlua (or other coffee flavored liquor)
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 ripe bananas

Fold a foil square in half (do this on a curved plate to keep juices from spilling before you crimp the packets)
On the bottom half, place 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon of Rum, 2 Tablespoons of Kahlua, 2 Tablespoons of butter and one banana (sliced in rounds). Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon. Fold the foil over to form a packet, crimping the open edges to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients. The packets can be prepared up to 1 hour ahead and kept at room temperature.

Grill for 5-7 minutes. Open carefully and pour over bowls of ice cream (if you want, I like them straight from the packet myself).
