Winter Banana Split

Updated on February 3, 2008

Not so healthy,,but good....:O)

Ok here we go:

Ingredients...a ripe banana ( or more) depending on how many people you have there for desert?

peel it..cut it lengthwise in half..

melt 1 tbsp. of butter in a saucepan..put the cut banana in and cook for 30 seconds on each side.

have some chocolate syrup warmed up

put some salted peanuts ( or cashews, macadamias,almonds ) in a plastic bag and seal..then take a small pan and crush them into not powder,,just pieces.( I know it might feel good to beat the heck out of them) but we don't want P-nut butter here..just chunks..:O)

Have a plate ready for the bananas as soon as the 60 seconds is done,, place them on the plate. Scoop your choice of Ice Cream (2 of them) on top of the hot banana' add the hot choc. syrup...

Put some whipped cream on top of that...yummm. then sprinkle the crushed nuts on top of could add a cherry, a raspberry, a strawberry..or just eat while warm and before the Ice cream melts. I mean it is Christmas..easy to do and very good to eat. i won't even give the stats...just have a good time..and then follow Kenny's advise about Resolutions..??G-Ma:O)

      Awesome recipe, I will definitely try this, it is my favorite. Here we have Goodberry's they make the finest Banana Split, but the above one looks equally good. :)

      G-Ma - I really like the idea of warming the banana first - I'll have to try that the next time I make a banana split!

      This sounds interesting. I'm not much of a banana split person though. I have to have a taste for bananas.
