How to Make Banana splits

Preparation time:

less than 30 mins

Cooking time:

less than 10 mins


Serves 2




For the salted caramel peanut sauce

  • 1½ tbsp salted caramel
  • 1½ tbsp crunchy peanut butter

For the whipped cream

  • 150ml/5fl oz double cream
  • 2 tsp icing sugar

For the chocolate drizzle

  • 25g/1oz milk cooking chocolate

For the banana split

  • 2 bananas
  • 6 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 6 strawberries
  • 2 tsp bright-coloured sprinkles, such as hundreds and thousands
  • 6 fresh cherries


  1. To make the sauce, melt the caramel sauce and peanut butter in a small saucepan over a low heat until it becomes runny. Keep warm.

  2. To make the cream, lightly whip the cream and icing sugar in a bowl until just stiff. Set aside in the fridge.

  3. To make the drizzle, melt the chocolate in a small glass heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water (known as a bain-marie or double-boiler). Allow the chocolate to melt gently in the bowl, stirring it often and making sure that the bowl isn’t touching the water below.

  4. To assemble the banana split, lay the banana halves in pairs in two long shallow dishes or on two plates. Nestle three scoops of ice cream down each split banana. Spoon or pipe three mounds of whipped cream in between the ice cream scoops. Scatter over the strawberries. Drizzle over the melted chocolate and salted caramel peanut sauce. Scatter over the sprinkles, top with the cherries and serve immediately.
