Rocky Road Grilled Banana Splits

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

Makes

4 servings

There's no wrong turn when you travel down this rocky road. Toasty-warm bananas filled with gooey goodness and topped with heaping scoops of (pause for drool) creamy perfection are a new cookout must-have. —Loretta Ouellette, Pompano Beach, Florida

Ingredients

  • 4 medium firm bananas, unpeeled
  • 1 dark chocolate candy bar with almonds (3-1/2 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup miniature marshmallows, divided
  • 1 quart rocky road ice cream
  • Whipped cream in a can

Directions

  1. Place each banana on a 12-in. square of foil; crimp and shape foil around bananas so they sit flat.
  2. Cut each banana lengthwise about 1/2 in. deep, leaving 1/2 in. uncut at both ends. Gently pull each banana peel open, forming a pocket. Finely chop half of the candy bar. Fill pockets with chopped chocolate and 1/2 cup marshmallows.
  3. Grill bananas, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are melted and golden brown. Transfer each banana to a serving plate; top with scoops of ice cream. Break remaining chocolate into pieces. Sprinkle chocolate pieces and remaining marshmallows over tops. Garnish with whipped cream.

    I used vanilla ice cream, as that was what I had in the freezer. Delicious!
