Yield: 4 servings (1 banana per serving)

 

Ingredients

  • 4 bananas
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup fat-free ice cream
  • 1/4 cup ice cream sprinkles
  • 4 Maraschino cherries

 

Preparation

  1. Cut a small piece off the curved side of 4 unpeeled bananas so they sit level, then make a deep slit down the center of each through the peel; place on four separate sheets of heavy duty non-stick aluminum foil. NOTE: If using heavy-duty aluminum foil that is not non-stick, apply spray oil before adding ingredients.
  2. Open the slits and brush the inside of each banana with melted butter, then sprinkle with 1 ounce chocolate chips; fold up the foil.
  3. Grill the packets over high heat until the chocolate melts, 6 to 8 minutes (don’t worry if the peel turns brown).
  4. Open the peels and top the bananas with ice cream, sprinkles and a cherry. Whipped topping may also be added if desired.
