Forget turning on the oven. It is toooooo hot! But that doesn’t mean you have to go without desserts. Hot summer days are perfect days for banana splits!
Try adding a new twist to your regular banana splits and use those leftover cereal crumbs by mixing:
1 1/4 cups crushed cereal (corn flakes, frosted flakes etc.)
2-3 Tbsp. melted butter or margarine
2 tsp. chopped pecans
Sprinkle on top of ice cream or banana splits. Serves 5.
For something truly different, try this fun dessert, which is great for kids and adults alike. Serve it for dinner, at birthday parties or for a snack.
Poor Man’s Banana Split
2 (3 oz.) boxes of your favorite Jello (strawberry, cherry, etc.)
4 bananas, sliced lengthwise
Mix each box of Jello separately and chill. Place one banana in a bowl or banana split dish. Scoop out scoops of Jello and place on top of banana (as you would ice cream on a banana split).
- Whipped topping
- Cherry on top
- Fresh fruit – strawberries, pineapples or mangoes
