As a kid, my boyfriend dreamed of having a banana split any time he saw one on TV, in cartoons, in a movie, etc. (He didn't grow up in North America, so the treat seemed especially exciting to him.) On a special trip to Dairy Queen, he finally tried a banana split - and he was so disappointed. He says he couldn't believe it was just ice cream and a banana.
So, with that in mind, I'd like to make a better banana split... something that doesn't disappoint. I'm not sure what he was hoping a banana split would be like (he didn't have a specific idea, but he didn't know it was just ice cream and a banana), but I'm sure there's a way to improve on the classic.
I was thinking of making a banana split with banana-flavoured cakes shaped like bananas, rather than actual bananas... but other than that, I am running short on ideas. How would you make an epic banana split?
