Depending on how hot the fire is it might take 3-5 mins for the chocolate and marshmallows to melt. 

The outside of the aluminum foil will start to grey and get a little cloudy (that’s when you know it’s ready). 

Use tongs to remove the banana boat from the fire… don’t forget the tongs it will be HOT.
