Banana Splits - Texas Sized!

I very rarely save room for dessert. Usually when the waiter swings back toward our table and asks the famous question, "Anyone save room for dessert?" my face begins to shrivel up and I sadly respond, "No..."

I have a new philosophy. Since I never save room for dessert, sometimes it is just necessary to eat dessert first. I believe many people will agree that this is probably the best thing I've ever blogged about.

Let's back track a few months to spring break - hop in your delorean if you will. We took a little trip to Dallas to visit my best friend. It was a spectacular vacation and great to be with good friends. One afternoon before hitting up the pool we went to the most amazing grocery store, Central Market.

For example, they have TEXAS SIZED bananas for everyone: Not just for families ... but singles too!

After staring at the bananas and photographing them for way too long, I selected a bunch and continued on my merry way. I was eager to make a mini banana split and spring break felt like the perfect time to try it out!

Mini Banana Splits
  • Bananas
  • Chocolate
  • Sprinkles
  • Cherries
  • Whip topping

Baked Pita Chips Not Included...

Here comes the easy part:
  • Chop your bannas into thirds (or halves) and dip them into melted chocolate. 
  • Roll the warm chocolate in sprinkles and let harden. 
  • Top with whip cream and a cherry!
  • Eat quickly or else the whip cream will melt!

Abby, the food model!

Tasty Treats!

The banana splits were tasty and a huuuuge mess! I'm not sure how food bloggers make their whip cream look so perfect, but ours was a hot mess. We HAD to eat them immediately. Which brings us back to my new philosophy of eating dessert first. Not a bad idea, huh?


  1. So, so cute! I have a sweet tooth today- I might need to make these!

  2. Love your blog! I am from the DFW area and Central Market is my fav! We go just to walk around. Their bakery is SO good too!

    Check out my new blog- I am giving away a $25 gc to Target to celebrate!
