This is a real treat! The bananas taste wonderful topped with the warmed hot fudge sauce. This is a good way to use up leftover hot coals after grilling your burgers, steaks, chicken.....
- 4 firm ripe bananas, unpeeled
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 quart vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup chocolate fudge topping, heated
- 1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped pecans or 1⁄2 cup walnuts, toasted
- whipped cream
- maraschino cherry
- Slice bananas in half lengthwise and then crosswise so each banana yields 4 pieces, don't peel them.
- Brush honey on cut sides and let stand 5 minutes.
- Charcoal grill: grill bananas, cut side down, on the rack of grill, directly over hot coals, covered, until grill marks appear; turn over and grill 4-5 minutes more or till skin pulls away from banana.
- For gas grill: place bananas on grill rack over low heat, cover and grill bananas as explained above.
- Peel banana pieces; arrange 2 pieces in each of 8 serving bowls; top each with 2 small scoops of ice cream; ladle 2 tablespoons of hot fudge sauce over each sundae; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon chopped nuts, add whipped cream and place one cherry on top.
