Adorable Banana Split Bites Recipe

Adorable Banana Split Bites Recipe

By Elizabeth Stark

When was the last time you had a banana split? It’s been a while since I’ve indulged in such a decadent dessert. So when I saw these tiny banana split bites on Bakers Royale, I knew I had to make them. More banana than anything, they’re fun little bites that are perfect for a party or just an afternoon surprise. And, they’re a great way to get your banana split fix in a tiny bite!

Banana Split Bites (adapted from Bakers Royale)

makes 12 bites

Ingredients:

  • 4 large, firm bananas
  • 4 oz. semi sweet chocolate, rough chopped
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream (or your ice cream of choice)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • cherries
  • multi-color sprinkles
  • cherry garnish

Directions:

  1. Cut bananas into 2 1/2″ tall segments (roughly 3 per banana), trim the narrow ends, and leave the skin on. Quickly hollow out a 1/2″ circle in the center of the banana. Add a tiny scoop of ice cream into each hole and put the bananas in the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Note that it’s best to leave the skins on until just before dipping in chocolate. I removed them before adding the ice cream and the bananas browned slightly.
  2. Either in your microwave, or in a double boiler, heat the chocolate until it is melted and smooth. Whip the cream to soft peaks, add the sugar, and then whip to stiff peaks. Set out your sprinkles.
  3. Remove the banana peel, dip the bottom of the banana in the melted chocolate and quickly coat with sprinkles. Set bananas back in the freezer for 5 minutes until the chocolate sets.
  4. Top with whipped cream (I piped mine on using a plastic bag with a small hole in the corner) and a cherry. Serve immediately.
