Waffles furnish a crispy base for this breakfast-turned-dessert. Our Banana Split Waffles are a great way to start or end your day when you're feeling like something fun and sweet. This is a fantastically fruity twist on traditional banana split recipes and we're excited to share it with you! Feel free to substitute chopped maraschino cherries or sliced strawberries for the pineapple if you'd like, or just try all three. We did!
What You'll Need
- 4 frozen waffles
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 ripe banana, sliced
- 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits or crushed pineapple, drained well
- Chocolate syrup or hot fudge topping for drizzling
- Whipped cream for garnish
- 4 maraschino cherries
What to Do
- Toast waffles in your toaster or toaster oven. When toasted, place one waffle on a dessert plate and top with a ½ cup scoop of ice cream.
- Top each waffle with ¼ of the banana slices, pineapple, and chocolate syrup. If you are using hot fudge, warm it in the microwave in 15 second intervals until warm, stirring occasionally. Garnish with whipped cream and maraschino cherries. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
