Barbequed Bananas Recipe
This is a dessert that you make partly on the barbeque grill, which is handy, as there are very few dessert recipes that involve actually using the barbeque. It's also a really good dessert, and not all that fattening -- only 5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus® per generous serving, which is pretty good as far as desserts go! This is a fun recipe for kids to make, with adult supervision, and can provide a good opportunity to tell them about barbeque safety.
Crumble up the Crunchie bars.
With a knife, make a small split in the banana skin along the top length of each banana from end to end.
Place the bananas onto the heated grill of a barbeque. Turn them regularly until the skin has blackened.
Remove from barbeque. Peel the skin (carefully -- it will be hot) off the bananas to expose the bananas. You can serve the banana sitting on the charred skin for an exotic look, or, simply discard the skin.
Place each banana on its own plate, and top with a scoop or two of ice cream, and then sprinkle with the crushed chocolate bar.
Allow 1/2 bar per banana, and 1 banana per person being served. Adjust quantities as necessary. The chocolate bar will be crushed and used as a topping -- how many bars you need depends on how many bananas you are barbequing. One bar will do 2 bananas. Cadbury Crunchie bars are great for this, but use whatever else you might fancy. Feel free to use a different flavour of ice cream.
