A new twist on an old classic: mini banana split cones

2 Sep

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.

    They look delicious. And I guess jimmies are sprinkles, right? :)

    I think I like your tweak better than the original.

      Thanks! My pictures aren’t the greatest, but the finished products were cute AND easy to eat. You just had to eat them kind of fast.
