Two childhood favorites become one with a sophisticated twist.
1 ripe banana
2 tbsps sugar
2–3 flavors ice cream
¼ cup chocolate or caramel sauce
4 tbsps whipped cream
2 tbsps chopped peanuts
2 Maraschino cherries
Peel banana. Cut in half lengthwise and again across. Pour sugar
on a small plate. Dip cut sides of banana into sugar. Caramelize
with a blowtorch or under broiler. Place banana pieces at back of
a martini glass, standing up. Place 1 scoop of each ice cream flavor
in glass. Drizzle with favorite chocolate or caramel sauce. Top
each with 2 tablespoons whipped cream. Sprinkle with chopped nuts
and top with a cherry. NOTE: The topping suggestions are endless.
If desired, use coconut, crushed pineapple, chocolate chips or sprinkles,
berries, brownies or chopped up candy bar pieces.
