How to Make S’mores Banana Split Sundaes

Nothing says summer is almost here like s’mores! Are you ready for the most delicious (and campfire-free) way to eat s’mores ever? GOOD. You’ve come to the right place :) We’ve combined s’mores with a banana split (one of our favorite ice cream treats) to make the *ultimate* sundae. Read on for the recipe!

Ingredients:

For the sundaes

  • vanilla ice cream
  • chocolate ice cream
  • bananas
  • mini marshmallows
  • maraschino cherries
  • chopped walnuts
  • whipped cream
  • hot fudge sauce (recipe follows)
  • graham cracker crumble (recipe follows)

For the hot fudge sauce: 

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • splash of vanilla

For the graham cracker crumble:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted

Instructions:

1. To make the fudge sauce, combine the sugar, cocoa powder, and heavy whipping cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until combined. Add butter and stir until melted. Cook the fudge sauce over low heat for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Let cool 5-10 minutes. If you won’t be using the fudge sauce right away, store in a mason jar in the fridge.

2. To make the graham cracker crumble, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a bowl. Pour into a baking pan lined with aluminum foil. Bake 10 minutes. Let cool.

3. To make the marshmallow bananas, preheat oven to broil. Slice bananas into 2-inch pieces and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Top with mini marshmallows. Pop in the oven for 3-4 minutes until marshmallows are golden brown and toasted. Keep a close eye on these guys so they don’t burn!

3. Time to make the sundaes! Add a few spoonfuls of graham cracker crumble to a mason jar. Top with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and a few banana slices and marshmallows. Add a spoonful of hot fudge sauce and two scoops of chocolate ice cream. Top with whipped cream, more hot fudge sauce, and walnuts. Add a maraschino cherry and enjoy!
