Adorable Banana Split Bites

By brooklynsupper |

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!

Adorable Banana Split Bites

Scoop a hollow in the center

 

Banana Split Bites (adapted from Bakers Royale)
makes 12 bites

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

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.

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.

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.

Top with whipped cream (I piped mine on using a plastic bag with a small hole in the corner) and a cherry. Serve immediately.

    These would be fun to finish off a tapas style party – little individual banana splits! I might add a touch of caramel!

    I made these last night and they were absolutely divine.

    I tried these and dipped the chocolate in chopped nuts instead of sprinkles…awesome !!!

    these sound sinfully yummy

  9. Danielle says:

    I love these adorable little bites! I had a little trouble getting the chocolate to stick to the cold banana. I may have left the bananas in the freezer too long – any suggestions? Thank you!

    I had a very hard time scooping ice cream into the hallowed out bananna! Mine looked terrible but they were delicious!

  11. Susan Matz says:

    I had trouble with the chocolate, too. I used choc syrup instead and had it chilled in the freezer for a bit before dipping. That worked well. This is a labor-intensive treat, but I made it for a prom dessert and the kids loved it. I also think the nuts are a great idea!

    Hi, I’m a Velata Independent Consultant, visit my blog to see how I featured your recipe in my weekly “Fondue Friday” post. Using Velata fondue warmers and chocolate for the chocolate in this recipe makes it even easier! Found this on Pinterest, great recipe!

    Hello,
    I want to make these for a party, but noticed that they need to be eaten immediately. Is there any way for me to keep them (frozen maybe?) till I arrive at the party and it’s time to eat them? Thanks.
