Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Slice bananas in half lengthwise and then crosswise so each banana yields four pieces (do not peel). Brush honey on cut sides of bananas. Let stand for 5 minutes.

  • For a charcoal grill, grill bananas, cut-side down, on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over low coals for 2 minutes or until grill marks appear. Using a pair of long-handled tongs, turn over and grill 4 to 5 minutes more or until skin pulls away from the banana. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to low. Place bananas on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

  • Peel banana pieces. Arrange 2 pieces of banana in each individual serving bowl. Top each serving with 2 small scoops of ice cream. Ladle 2 tablespoons of hot fudge over each sundae. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of chopped nuts. If you like, add whipped cream and place a cherry on top. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
