Banana Splut Fudge is all the fun of the ice cream treat, in a bite-sized fudgey treat. A new twist on the summer classic!
Growing up we had “Dairy Queen Fridays” throughout the summer. This was a regular thing in our house, and if you were home you got to choose your favorite treat.
I rarely chose anything new. 99.99% of the time I asked for a Heath Blizzard. Even to this day, if I step into a DQ, I order a Heath Blizzard.
What does that have to do with today’s recipe you might be thinking?
Well, my dad ALWAYS ordered a Banana Split. Occasionally he would change it up and order a Banana Split Blizzard. And I ALWAYS tried a few bites (or a dozen). It was one of my favorite flavor combinations. The sweet ice cream with pineapple, strawberries, chocolate, whipped cream, nuts. And of course a cherry on top!
Today’s recipe brings me back to those summer nights with my family. One bite of these and you will get all those great flavors in a “no melt” treat. Between the dried, chopped pineapples and cherries to the sweet banana pudding mixed in, these bites of fudge are awesome!
This fudge WOULD have been better with a red M&M candy on top, but the day I went to make these the bag of candy was missing.
So for the “look” I topped each one with a cinnamon red hot. DO NOT eat the red hot with the fudge. LOL. Totally changes the flavor, haha! My husband took these to work and his coworkers were quite confused. I guess I should have removed all the “garnishes” before letting them leave the house. My bad! Red hots and Banana splits do not mesh well. Just sayin'.
