I stumbled upon the cutest little idea the other day and set out to make these awesome Banana Split Bites. I figured it would be a great way to provide a little “bite size” banana split (sometimes a whole banana split is a bit much) and I was certain the kids would love them. Here is the sweet picture from the original post from blogs.babble.com. (adapted from Bakers Royale.)
So, I decided to make them late last night. I mean late. I was tired. Exhausted, really. Midway through the process, I looked over on my counter and there were mini cake cones that I had bought earlier that day. EUREKA! I could cut out a couple steps (mainly just some freezing time) and just shove the ingredients into a tiny little ice cream cone. When I have more time, I’d like to make the original recipe, but this is a little tweak that worked out in a pinch.
I took some cake cones and I dipped the rims into the melted chocolate. Then, I sprinkled with the jimmies. I put a cut banana piece right into the cone.
Then I scooped a little ice cream on top and finished off with some whipped cream and a cherry.
The kids loved them and they tasted great.
