Sweet and Salty Spin on the Classic Banana Split

I love sweet things. And salty things. But a combination of them both? Oh yeah. Amazing. So, I created this sweet and salty gourmet spin on a banana split and let me tell you, it's heaven in a bowl. Bananas brulee, toasted nuts, salty pretzel- you know you want one!

What You'll Need to Make It:
  • Vanilla Ice Cream. (I made my own using this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup crushed nuts
  • A ripe banana
  • pretzels

Step One- Brulee the Banana
  • Put your oven on the broil setting
  • Cut the banana however you wish
  • Dip the top in white or brown sugar
  • Place slices on a cookie sheet
  • Place on the top rack of oven 
  • Broil until the sugar starts to bubble and brown (Make sure the sugar gets really brown)
  • Remove from oven
  • Let the slices sit for two minutes then scoop them off with a spatula

Step Two- Toast the Nuts
  • Coat the bottom of a skillet with olive oil and salt to taste
  • Add the nuts
  • Cook on medium heat while stirring with a wooden spoon
  • Remove from heat once the nuts get really toasty and brown and start to be fragrant. (Yum)
  • Stir in crushed pretzel pieces

Step Three- Combine it all!
  • Pretty self-explanatory, just assemble your sundae however you wish! Enjoy!
