Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • *If using bamboo skewers, soak in water at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.
  • Make the butter mixture, and transport it in a small container. Bring the cut-up mango and pineapple in a separate container. So the bananas don't turn brown, wait to cut them until you're ready to thread the fruit on the skewers and grill.
  • If you're going to serve this at home, try substituting sorbet, frozen yogurt or ice cream for the brownies.
  • Buy "green tip" bananas, which are ripe but still firm enough to withstand grilling. The grilling brings out the natural sweetness.
