Big round scoops of ice cream, sticky, gooey caramel sauce, colourful scatterings of hundreds and thousands; then of course there's the banana. Banana splits are loved by kids, and anyone older is instantly transformed into their childhood self when presented with this decadent dessert.

This recipe doesn't really involve any cooking; just putting together. It's perfect for kids who can add their favourite ingredients and flavours, so feel free to use the recipe as a guide rather than strict instructions. For a gourmet 'adult' version you can make your own sauces and ice cream.

Cooking Time: N/A
Makes: 1 serving

Ingredients
3 scoops of ice cream
1 banana
Chocolate or caramel sauce (or both)

Method
Slice the banana in half, and place the two halves either side of your dish.

Place your 3 scoops of ice cream in the middle of the banana slices. You can use any flavours you like. Vanilla, strawberry and chocolate all work well together.

Pour your sauces over the ice cream. It's good to have different options so people can choose their favourites. We used a homemade caramel sauce, but you can use chocolate, strawberry, caramel or pineapple topping. If you don't want to make your own toppings, store bought ones will do fine.

Pipe a rosette on top of each ice cream scoop. You can get a can of already whipped cream, or whip your own cream and pipe it using a piping tip and piping bag.

Drizzle a little bit more caramel over the cream and then sprinkle with hundreds and thousands. You can also add nuts, sprinkles, or chocolate sprinkles. You can also top off your banana split with a maraschino cherry.

Kids may need some help slicing the bananas, but otherwise this is a dessert they can prepare themselves. You could even have an ice cream parlour birthday party and let kids decorate their own banana splits as a party activity.

Share a picture of your own banana split and let us know your favourite flavours!
