Doing The Splits!

Banana Splits were the order of the afternoon, and we set out the whole DIY bar! Neapolitan to scoop, bananas to splice, and toppings galore: homemade strawberry preserves, crushed pineapple (just can't do the store-bought "fruit" toppings... fruit-flavored corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup and sugar), chocolate syrup to squeeze (TJs has a great one), butterscotch caramel (Mrs. Richardson's of course), whipped cream to spray, "nut mix" to sprinkle (from among the nuts in the baking aisle), and the ever-important Maraschino cherries to top 'em off (which M ate a plethora of)!

I'll take one, thanks! That sounds soooo good. And all I have in the freezer is sugar-free sorbet.

I know, I hadn't had a banana split in way too long. Like years. That's just criminal!

Man, I wish I was there. I haven't had a banana split in ages either. What happened to your banana split bowls? You used to have some right? Maybe we could do the "splits" sometime together :)

looks terrific! I will have to use that idea in the very near future! maybe as a special treat next week when I am a single parent:)

Yeah, Jamie, I still have the banana split bowls. They're just packed away in the loft, and I wasn't willing to go digging for them (and wash them again) before serving these.

No doubt the next time you're here, the cool dishes will be back in the cupboard!
