This was a simple desert I knocked up after cooking dirty steaks on the Thuros. I don’t currently own the lid and so I have no way to save the coals for a later cook. Normally the coals go to waste but not this time! This time I make my version of a super easy banana split.
This was really not complicated. I decided to make the most of the dying coals only after eating my dirty steak and lobster tail. There wasn’t much time before the coals were gone and wasted. So I quickly peeled two bananas and placed them into a foil pouch. With the bananas I added three Lindt chocolate balls, a sprinkle of demerera sugar and a dusting of cinnamon. That’s it. I sealed the parcel the best I could and nestled it in the hot coals for around 5 minutes. I could have left them a little longer if I wanted softer bananas.
It was fantastic! So simple but so delicious. Why I haven’t thought to do something like this before I do not know. The main lesson learnt was to never waste hot coals. Do you cook desert of the BBQ? If not have a go and let me know how it goes.
