Grilled Banana Splits

This recipe from Food Network looked too good not to share!  I used to make a version these and my favorite was to top them with heath bars and caramel topping.  Enjoy!




 Grilled Banana Splits


  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 firm bananas, split in 1/2, lengthwise, in their peels
  • Store-bought strawberry ice cream
  • 1/2 cup store-bought candied pecans, for topping
  • Fresh Whipped Cream, for topping
  • Store-bought hot fudge sauce, for topping
  • Maraschino cherries, for topping
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish


Preheat the grill to medium heat.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Sprinkle the bananas with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Put them, cut side down, on the grill and cook until grill marks appear, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip over and cook until the peel just starts to pull away from the banana. Remove the bananas from the grill and peel. Add 2 banana halves to each banana split dish. Top with strawberry ice cream, candied pecans, whipped cream and hot fudge sauce. Put a cherry on top and garnish with a sprig of mint.
