My niece Amanda Jean and I have a lot of fun in the kitchen creating different dishes. One of us will start with a recipe idea and it just grows from there—and so does the mess. In this case, the happy result was our Grilled Banana Brownie Sundae. —Carol Farnsworth, Greenwood, Indiana


  • 2 medium bananas, unpeeled
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 8 prepared brownies (2-in. squares)
  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed
  • 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts


  1. Cut unpeeled bananas crosswise in half, then lengthwise in half. Place quartered bananas on an oiled grill rack, cut side down. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat on each side until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Cool slightly.
  2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, brown sugar and peanut butter until smooth.
  3. To serve, remove bananas from peel; place over brownies. Top with cream cheese mixture, ice cream, fudge topping and peanuts.
