Put a new twist on the classic banana split with a sundae made using a grilled banana. To prepare this sweet treat, cut a slit down the length of a fresh banana, then wrap it in foil and place it on the grill until it's soft and warm. Spoon vanilla ice cream into the opening so that the peel serves as the dish. Top with hot fudge, caramel sauce, sprinkles and nuts.

For an easy variation on the banana sundae, try cutting grilled bananas into slices and topping with drizzled chocolate or caramel. Serve with whipped cream, and don't forget the cherry!
