Banana Split “Revisité”

One night I needed to prepare a dessert… and fast… faced with a few (well) ripe banana, some chocolate and a couple of marshmallows, I decided to take the typical “banana split” to the next level with this wee gem.

Ingredients serves 2

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon of butter (non-salted)
  • 4 marshmallows (pink and white to make it look pretty)
  • Half a block of milk chocolate
  • Neapolitan Ice-cream
  • Wafer biscuits


  1. Peel and slice the bananas length ways
  2. Heat the butter in a pan and place in banana slices
  3. Meanwhile, cut the marshmallows in two and brown with a blow torch (or an open fire if you are lucky enough to have one… and it is Winter)
  4. Bring a pot of water the a gentle boil and place a bowl over the top (bain marie) with the chocolate in it (ensure the bowl doesn’t touch the water) to melt
  5. By this time you banana should be golden, flip and ensure the other sides is golden too
  6. Plate up by placing the golden banana slices on the bottom, place the wafer and a scoop of each flavour of ice-cream
  7. Decorate with the toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate

There you have it, a gourmet take on a traditional dessert in less than 10 mins!
