Banana split s’mores? It’s soooooo summer, isn’t it? Yes, it melts almost immediately. But, shouldn’t part of eating the ooey gooey marshmallow treat be getting messy? If you want a calorie-conscious, dainty little snack – this isn’t for you.
On the other hand, if you’re saying, “Hey, it’s summer vacation. I need a treat! The kids need a treat!” then go right ahead with this. This completely kid-friendly recipe is also an easy (and super-fun) addition to a summer birthday party, family reunion or July 4th holiday celebration.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
· Chocolate ice cream
· Graham crackers
Here’s What to Do:
1. Get the marshmallows for your banana split s’mores ready. If you’re stuck inside you can microwave them (I used 10 seconds, but microwaves vary- so you may need more or less time) or you can bake them on top of graham crackers in the oven. I set the oven at 350 and kept checking back to see when they puffed up and started browning on top. If you’re outside, use the campfire or your fire pit instead (for that crusty brown goodness).
2. Spoon a scoop of ice cream on to the graham cracker. The chocolate ice cream is the substitute for the traditional chocolate bar.
4. Add the marshmallow.
5. Sandwich the s’more with another graham cracker.
6. Squish a second marshmallow on top. If you’re really daring, add a generous heaping of whipped cream.
Finish the banana split s’more with a cherry on top. If the kids (or you) don’t feel like a cherry, add a few more sprinkles or even a second scoop of ice cream!
