Going Bananas for the Ultimate Banana Split Burger

July 20, 2015

Dinner, Then Dessert has developed one of the most creative ways I have ever seen a banana split served - as a burger.  This one-of-a-kind recipe takes all the elements of a classic burger and transform them into something sweet.  Homemade banana bread buns are filled with a refreshing strawberry "ketchup" (in other words a strawberry sauce) and sandwiched in between a chocolate dipped ice cream bar and slice of pineapple.  If that combination hasn't already blown you away, the tops of the buns are glazed with a salted caramel sauce.  One bite and you will be hooked on these truly amazing ice cream burgers.
