My kids have never eaten banana splits, but have pretended to do so. Come to think of it, I don't think they've ever seen a banana split, but they do like ice cream and the other Split ingredients. I was pretty certain they'd enjoy eating them. So yesterday, after a lengthy painting exercise, I surprised them with their very own. Mini slices of banana, mini scoops of ice cream, a little chocolate drizzle, some crushed (hand-picked!) strawberries, chopped nuts, and small dollops of whipped cream. Yum! Nothing beats eating it in the backyard in your diaper, either.
(I pre-froze the mini scoops of ice cream in these cute little muffin tins since I knew they'd melt while preparing the splits.)
