Surprise Super Bowl Party Hit - Grilled Banana Split

Pssst | Feb 10, 2006 11:57 AM

I saw this somewhere and on a whim made it to take to a Super Bowl party last weekend. People went crazy -- they loved the combo of the warm, grilled cake/fruit, the cold ice cream with the rich sauce.

2-3 bananas
1 pound cake
1 pineapple
maraschino cherries
butter, melted

1 pint heavy cream
9 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped

Cube the bananas, pound cake and pineapple into same size pieces (about 1/2 inch). On a wooden skewer, alternate pieces of banana, pound cake, and pineapple until the skewer is full, leaving room for a handle. Finish skewer with a cherry. Brush with melted butter and grill for a minute or so on each side.

Sauce: Heat the cream in a small pan over medium heat; do not let it boil. Add the chocolate. Stir/whisk the mixture until chocolate is melted & incorporated into cream. Cool and pour into a squeeze bottle.

To Serve: Scoop ice cream into bowls and top with a skewer. Squeeze some chocolate sauce over top and serve.

It was awesome!
