How to Make Grilled Banana Splits

This new twist on the banana split just might be the perfect dessert for your next cookout.

  1. Heat the grill.
  2. Prepare the bananas by trimming the ends with a knife, cut off the banana stem and base, while remaining in their skins.
  3. With the banana still in its skin, cut it in half vertically so it's in two long lengths.
  4. Brush the cut face of each banana half with melted butter, place the banana halves cut side down on the hottest part of the grill.
  5. Stand ready with tongs and a spatula, the bananas will cook quickly.
  6. To burn in grill marks, give the bananas a quarter turn so a new set of grill marks runs across the first set.
  7. The bananas should turn golden very quickly. Remove the bananas before they become too dark.
  8. Let them cool slightly, and use your fingers to remove the banana skins.
  9. Assemble each banana split by placing two grilled halves in an oval bowl. Top each with two or three scoops of different flavors of ice cream. Drizzle with caramel sauce, top each scoop with whipped cream, and garnish with chopped nuts, cherries or the topping of your choice.
