Loads of fluffy white icing, a ribbon of fruity preserves, and chocolate, nuts, ganache, and sprinkles give these an unmistakably scrumptious cupcake profile. One tester described the contrasting flavors and textures in this cupcake as a “party in your mouth,” and we can attest that cleaning up after this party beats picking up beer bottles off the living room floor any day. Pureeing the mashed banana gives these cupcakes a delicate crumb and light texture that sets them apart from other banana baked goods.

Eating ice cream right out the tub is great, but sometimes you want to get a little creative with your ice cream creations. The next time you’re in the mood for vanilla ice cream or gelato, turn it into a delicious banana split. Add bananas, chunks of brownie, and chocolate syrup for a heavenly combination.
My devotion to banana splits knows no bounds. So why would I let the fact that I’m grilling prevent me from expressing my affection? This dessert is a delicious, creative wrap-up to a tasty, traditional cookout. You'll need about 8 to 10 wooden skewers for this recipe. Make sure to soak them for about 30 minutes in water prior to starting. See all ice cream recipes.
