Every once in a while, I convince my kids I’m brilliant. Take these Banana Split Cookie Cups, for example. Not only were my kids thoroughly impressed, these fun little dessert cups are the perfect way to celebrate the start of summer. They have everything you’d get with a traditional banana split, minus the ice cream–and it’s all packed into a fun little package!
My family loved these–they consumed 2 dozen in one sitting! Granted I live in a house full of boys (and I did help by eating my fair share), but still, that doesn’t happen with everything I make. There are so many ways you could adapt this recipe. Try adding caramel sauce, use mini chocolate chips in place of nuts, or substitute strawberry topping in place of fresh strawberries. My only advice: eat these as soon as you make them. They don’t keep well–the bananas turn brown and the whipped cream deflates. But really, eating them quickly probably won’t be an issue.
Who Dished It Up First: This is an original recipe.
