Who said you can’t enjoy ice cream with the cold weather ahead? All you need is a trio of ice cream flavors and fun toppings with a banana base. A classic banana split calls for vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, but once you have the recipe down, the possibilities are endless.

Yield: Serves 1 to 2
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 seconds

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons homemade or store-bought hot fudge sauce
  • 1 tablespoon roasted, salted peanuts or nuts
  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 2 scoops chocolate ice cream
  • 2 scoops strawberry ice cream
  • 1 teaspoon sprinkles
  • 1 cup homemade or store-bought whipped cream
  • 3 maraschino cherries with stems

Directions

  1. Prepare the toppings. Microwave 2 tablespoons hot fudge sauce in a small microwave-safe bowl until warm and pourable, about 10 seconds. Coarsely chop 1 tablespoon roasted, salted peanuts or nuts.
  2. Slice the banana. Peel and slice 1 medium banana in half lengthwise. Place in a banana split boat or small oval au gratin baking dish.
  3. Add the ice cream. Place 2 scoops vanilla, 2 scoops chocolate, and 2 scoops strawberry ice cream between the banana halves.
  4. Top the ice cream. Sprinkle the chopped nuts and 1 teaspoon sprinkles over the ice cream. Use a small spoon to drizzle the warm hot fudge over the entire sundae.
  5. Finish with whipped cream and cherries. Dollop 1 cup whipped cream over the ice cream. Top with 3 maraschino cherries.
