S’more Sundae Banana Split

We just got back from Seattle and are getting into the swing of things while *trying* to get over some colds {no fun!} so I’m going to make this quick. While staying with some friends, I pulled this little treat together one afternoon and we all became a little obsessed.

Basically this is a banana split hybrid on crack. I split some bananas down the middle, toasted some marshmallows up on top then covered the whole thing with graham crackers, ice cream, hot fudge, and whipped cream. HEAVEN I TELL YOU! My life has been changed. I’m pretty sure going into that Ben & Jerry’s store has ruined me for life. I have gotten Ben & Jerry’s before, but never Peanut Butter Cup and/or Karamel Sutra. YES. Those two flavors are life changing and are the ones I used in this dessert. So so good! Of course vanilla or chocolate would delicious too. I’m not persnickety when it comes to ice cream.

Here are the step by step photos incase you got a little confused with all that cold-medicine hazy talk. {see above}

Start by slicing a banana in half lengthwise and then crosswise. Place on a baking sheet cut side up. Top with a few marshmallow pieces and stick under the broiler to get toasty.

Now, to assemble. Stick some graham crackers in with the bananas, drizzle with hot fudge and top with ice cream.

And more hot fudge.

And cream. Hello 5 minute dessert. How are you?

Here’s the printable. Have a great Monday, friends! I’ll try not to infect you with my cold through the interwebs…

S'more Sundae Banana Split

Yield: 2 servings


1 large banana
3 large marshmallows
2 graham cracker sheets + more if desired
3 tablespoons hot fudge, warmed
2 big scoops ice cream in desired flavor {I used Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup and Karamel Sutra}
whipped cream
any other desired toppings, such as sprinkles, peanuts, etc.


Turn oven on to broil. Line small baking sheet with foil. Slice banana in half lengthwise and crosswise to create 4 pieces. Remove skins and place onto baking sheet. Cut marshmallows into discs and place on top of banana slices. Put under broiler and toast marshmallows until lightly toasted. Set banana slices into a shallow bowl and add in pieces of graham cracker in between banana. Drizzle with hot fudge and top with scoops of ice cream. Drizzle any more hot fudge onto ice cream if desired and top with cream. Serve immediately.

    Wow, it’s been a few months since I even had a banana split. And I’ve never made one. Obviously, that’s something that needs to change.

    I love the different ice creams!

    Oh my goodness! This has everything I LOVE!!! I love that you call this “banana split hybrid on crack.” :) Awesome. Ben & Jerry’s peanut butter is one of my FAVES but I have never tried Karamel Sutra before- definitely going to give this one a try! thank you!

    This looks so yummy…. How can you be so skinny and make such yummy food?


    • Lauren — October 30th, 2012 @ 7:27 pm

      The trick is taking 3 bites and moving onto something else. AND sharing this with 6! Everyone only got a bite or two.
