Making Memories Sweet … With a Cherry On Top!

posted in: Blog, Recipes | 0

Sometimes sweets can’t be avoided.

They just can’t.

Kids love them and parents wish they didn’t love them as much – especially around bedtime. Banana-Split-Mini-Bites-_bakers-royale11

But, everything’s okay in moderation, right?

If you’ve been following the blog, you know that I constantly stress how important it is to spend time as a family baking with your children, sharing stories, and enjoying the fruits of your “labor.”

So, I found these adorable banana split bites. I can personally attest that this tried and true recipe is a winner with the kids! I’m all about simple, fun treats that taste amazing and this certainly fits the bill! Give it a try with your children (about two or three each serves as a sufficient belly-filler), they’ll love them!

You’ll need:

Firm bananas

Chocolate (chips or melting squares)

Non-pareils, sprinkles or chopped peanuts

Ice cream

Whipped cream

Maraschino cherries



  • Use firm bananas and cut into 1 inch sections. Leave the peel on for easy handling, and with a melon baller, dig a well in the middle of each banana section.
  • Melt chocolate in the microwave and dip the bottom portion of the banana in chocolate and then dip it once again in either non-pareils or chopped peanuts. To quickly harden the chocolate, place dipped bananas in the freezer for five minutes.
  • Fill each well with ice cream (I filled mine with vanilla chocolate chand top with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.

I can’t say it enough: Take these recipes, make them with your children. These memories will last a lifetime.

Thank you, Bakers Royale!
