Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Yields: 2 Servings


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.
