Yum Alert: Banana Split Minis

Written by Ashley

Mini Banana Splits. Why didn’t I think of this?!?!

Whether you’re worried about the mess, the portion control, or the sheer anxiety regarding constructing a full-sized, iconic, Banana Split, these are sure to work well in to your scheme. Keep ’em cold & travel with them easily, to wow your hosts.

  • Use firm bananas and cut into 1 inch sections. Leave the peel on for easy handling, and with a melon baller, dig a well in the middle of each banana section.
  • Melt chocolate in the microwave and dip the bottom portion of the banana in chocolate and then dip it once again in either non-pareils or chopped peanuts. To quickly harden the chocolate, place dipped bananas in the freezer for five minutes.
  • Fill each well with ice cream (I filled mine with vanilla chocolate chip) and top with whip cream and a maraschino cherry.
