These cute-as-can-be mini cones are no-melt, bite-sized version of a banana split!
I’m all about the food on the 4th of July, but coming up with desserts that won’t melt in the summer heat can be a little challenging. Everyone seems to be craving ice cream sweets!
Like banana splits. Which just happens to be one of my all-time faves.
So I came up with a no-melt, no-mess, super cute split, all patriotic and mini.
A mini banana split in a cone. A CONE. Yeah, I’m kinda patting myself on the back here. And the cone is filled with… wait for it…
Yogurt! Cool, smooth, refreshing strawberry yogurt. It’s like liquid ice cream. Mmmm.
Let’s round up the good stuff – bananas, Yoplait™ strawberry yogurt, mini cones, sprinkles, frosting and Sixlet™ candies.
First, scoop out half of the frosting and place it in a shallow dish or plate. Now take your mini cone (I KNOW, THEY ARE SO CUTE RIGHT?) and dunk the rim into the frosting.
Now dump the sprinkles into a small bowl and dunk the frosted cone into the sprinkles. Make sure the whole rim is coated with red, white and blue goodness.
Spoon in the strawberry Yoplait™ Yogurt. You can use any flavor, but I wanted my cones to have that banana split flavor so I went with strawberry.
Slice the bananas into small chunks.
Put a banana chunk on top of the cone.
Tint the other half of the frosting with blue food coloring.
Pipe the blue frosting on top of the banana chunk. You might want to dry off the top of the banana slice with a paper towel first so the frosting doesn’t slide off.
Sprinkle more red, white and blue jimmies on the frosting and top with a red chocolate Sixlet™ candy.
The strawberry Yoplait™ Yogurt, the creamy vanilla frosting, the chocolate Sixlet™ candy and the banana all make up the perfect banana split bite in an adorable mini ice cream cone It’s bursting with star spangled sweetness for your 4th of July bash!
