When the sun comes out to play and feels as if it wants to fry you, you ultimately resort to cold treats to cool you down. If you have ever had a banana split, you probably were defeated by the amount of ice cream and other added goodies to even finish it. Have no fear, give the old classic a spin and actually finish your split this summer.
What you will need:
- Pineapples (you can buy pre-packaged pineapple spears)
- Chocolate chips
- Popsicle sticks
Before you get extremely excited and start sticking fruit on sticks, there are a few things that you must do. The first being cutting the fruit into pieces; cut the strawberries in half, cut the bananas into one inch pieces, as well as the pineapples. Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave on 30 second increments until you chocolate is fully melted and smooth. Once you put your fruit onto the stick (three pieces of fruit; one of each), dip the bottom halves of the fruit in the chocolate and then set the fruit into the nuts. Let them sit until the chocolate has set and dig in! Maybe even try spraying some whip cream on them on eating them with ice cream!
