If a banana hammock kingdom exists (scary thought…), blog reader Priscilla should be queen! Are you ready for the Holy Grail of Banana Hammocks?  I can assure you that you’re not. Here it is anyway.


Does she define the word “genius” or what?

Priscilla stuffed her banana hammock with marshmallows (vegans can use Ricemallow Cream, Smuckers, or vegan marshmallows), dark chocolate, and a speculoos cookie.  Then she took her brilliance a step further and used the Melted Banana Trick.

Katie is the baker, photographer, and author of the popular blog Chocolate-Covered Katie. Her favorite food is chocolate, and she believes in eating a balanced diet that includes dessert every single day. More about Katie—>

  1. OK I thought the honey roasted peanuts looked amazing, but then i saw the smores! I prefer just regular smores, but do you know what is awesome? Smores pizza on graham cracker crust. Mmmm…I might make some this weekend.

  2. lz says:

    Fantastic pictures of those banana hammocks! S’more fudge babies is a brilliant idea! Also, maybe s’more brownies/blondies, like a mix between the two, with marshmallows and chocolate fudge? Decadence…

    Love all of the banana hammock photos! I want one now! The grind your own chocolate pb sounds amazing, I wish I had that at my Whole Foods. What food would I want to s’more-ify? Hmm.. fro yo smore style!!

  4. Pam says:

    Wow! those look great! We have done pancakes…oh so good!


  5. Jessica says:

    Oh my goodness…I haven’t had breakfast yet, but that is calling my name! :) Love it! S’mored brownies is a favorite…so I would put money on s’mored fudge babies would be a soon replacement for that goodie! :)

  6. JCD says:

    My family makes (unvegan) s’mores squares at Christmas. There are a few variations. I’ve also made s’mores with roasted banana chunks instead of marshmallows because vegan marshmallows don’t exist up here.

    Otherwise, apples, oatmeal cookies, granola bars, and cupcakes are all good to s’moreify.

  7. Jessica says:

    Yum, that s’mores banana looks awesome! I think I’d like a s’more version of dessert pizza…chocolate sauce, Dandies marshmallows, chocolate chips, and maybe some coconut flakes for good measure!

  8. Betherann says:

    How about a s’mores smoothie/blended banana “ice cream”?

  9. Betherann says:

    Or perhaps even straight up s’mores peanut/almond butter…yum!

    hey katie,

    long time no talk! i’ve been able to carve some time here and there to catch up in blog world. good to see you’re still inspiring so many people. you should really come out with a cook zine called “what’s in your speedo?” and make it all about bananas.

    take care, xo jen

  11. Brandi C. says:

    Smore pudding!

  12. Amanda says:

    Katie–I just love your sense of’s just like mine..ha ha ha! Banana it!!

    Have you tried Dandie’s vegan marshmellows??ohhh..soo good.

  13. Oh my, genius indeed! It’s slush snowing right now, so s’mores are making me think of rich hot chocolate with gooey melty marshmallows on top. I know what I’m doing tonight! :)

  14. miss v says:

    that is some serious banana foodie-porn!

  15. OK, my jaw dropped when I saw the smores! HEAVEN!!!

  16. Mama Pea says:

    Grind your own chocolate peanut butter? Are you kidding me?!? I also appreciate the use of the word “grind” and “banana hammock” in the same paragraph.

  17. WOW! I was NOT ready for that s’mores Banana Hammock.

    What is this “Ricemallow Cream” you speak of? I want to try it!

    Hmm I once had S’more-ifed fondue It’s basically just meltier than regular fondue because you already have the melted chocolate in the fondue pot so you just dip the marshmallow into the chocolate fondue and then put in between graham crackers. It was pretttty darn good!

  18. Devan G says:

    i had the biggest grin on my face reading this post.
    so thourouly entertaining.

  19. That smores hammock looks freakin’ amazing. And I have vegan marshmallows, dark chocolate, and bananas at my house right now.

  20. That S’more banana hammock looks sinfully yummy :)

  21. Colleen says:

    Look at those delicious Banana babies!!! And grind your own chocolate peanut butter? YES PLEASE!

  22. Marina says:

    Banana hammocks look delicious 😀
    I have no idea what s’mores are :))

  23. Katie says:

    I’ve been wanting to try s’more oats for a while…and s’more hot cocoa sounds really yummy! I’m not sure how the graham crackers would do in the liquid, but I’d be willing to try it out. 😉

  24. Haha, you’re cute. Smores…anything? Seriously, your eats look incred!

    I think I’d smores up some oats. Oats are already delicious, but why not jazz’em up!

  25. Mona says:

    my banana hammock is featured on CHOCOLATE COVERED KATIE
    hahah thanks so much for putting that up…except that smores banana totally schooled mine
    i’m making that tonight for desert

  26. plamarie says:

    Oh yes! smores babies. grahms, shmellos and chocolate. I’m all ears.

  27. eaternotarunner says:

    Thanks for the shoutout! I wish I was eating that s’mores banana right now 😀

  28. The honey roasted peanuts in your hammock look perfect! gosh those look sooo yum! I think I will smore-ify a brussel’s sprout.


  29. Shelby says:

    Never thought I would say it…but I LOVE banana hammocks! The S’mores idea is genius!
    S’mores Fudge Babies?! DO IT!

    My ideal S’more concoction would either be ice cream or s’more flavored nut butter! Mmm.

  30. Jenny says:

    dang, is Priscilla single? I’ll totally marry her – insolong as she makes me banana hammocks all day everyday :)

    I have a deep and profound passion for s’mores oats — I get all the great taste of a regular s’more.. without the awful campfire smell than lingers in my hair for days.

  31. WOW.. smores and bananas what a great combo!! Love it! :)

  32. Major foodgasm!!!! What a delish combo! I really want one now :)

  33. The banana hammocks look amazing!!! I need to make one of those tomorrow :) Anything with chocolate ROCKS!

  34. candice says:

    Everything is so drool-worthy. I reiterate your question: Why doesn’t my Whole Foods sell grind-your-own CHOCOLATE peanut butter?! And that s’mores banana hammock is a big blob of food porn.

    S’more fudge babies sound brilliant. Can’t wait to hear your results 😉 I would s’morify… hmm… nut butter or ice cream. <3 I need to buy marshmallow fluff~

  35. monica says:

    Am I the only one who can never find ricemellow anywhere? I need some! (Or a wearable green banana hammock that doesn’t look awesome on?:) That jjohn mayer thinks he’s the only one who can pull it off well he hasn’t seen me in mine,,,,ha.):)

  36. Trail says:

    The s’mores banana hammock left me speechless. S’mores + banana truly = genius!!! I have bananas and chocolate… I will figure out some kind of less-satisfactory substitute until I can get the mallow creme!

  37. Michal says:

    that looks amazing.
    im just jealous though that you even have a whole foods, im sadly without one :(

  38. Jenna says:

    love the hammock!

  39. *Andrea* says:

    oooh i starred this on my google reader!!! i want to try them all ;-D

  40. Oh yum! Bananas with chocolate and peanut butter!!!! I’m smiling right now.

  41. Haylee says:

    hmm definitely S’more oat bran, maybe even making a s’more green smoothie???
