Cucina Antica Banana Splits November 11 2015, 0 Comments
- 1 jar Cucina Antica Cranberry Sauce
- 2 tbsp. Cucina Antica Imported Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 quarts fresh vanilla ice cream
- 6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
- 4 bananas
- Whipped cream
Slice bananas in half lengthwise. In a medium saute pan, bring about one inch of water to a simmer. Place a heat safe bowl over the the pan so that it rests on the edges of the pan but does not touch the water. Add semi-sweet mini chocolate chips and stir gradually with a spatula. When the chocolate is mostly melted but a few chips remain whole, remove the bowl from the heat. Gradually stir in Cucina Antica Imported Extra Virgin Olive Oil until chocolate becomes very thin and drizzles off the spoon when spoon is lifted. (Alternatively, you can heat the chocolate in the microwave, removing to stir frequently and add olive oil).
Scoop ice cream into a large bowl. Arrange banana slices around bowl. Drizzle with chocolate and olive oil glaze and let sit for 30 seconds. Add Cucina Antica Cranberry Sauce. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
