So one of my FAVorite shows is "Down Home with the Neely's"!!
They are such a beautiful couple. .but a couple that can COOK!! They have several receipe's that I will be sharing straight from their website. However today I want to share one of everyone's favorite desserts with a twist. .

Grilled Banana Split

6 firm bananas, split in 1/2, lengthwise, in their peels
Store-bought strawberry ice cream
1/2 cup store-bought candied pecans, for topping
Fresh Whipped Cream, for topping
Store-bought hot fudge sauce, for topping
Maraschino cherries, for topping
Mint sprigs, for garnish

Preheat the grill to medium heat.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
Sprinkle the bananas with sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Put them, cut side down, on the grill and cook until grill marks appear, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Flip over and cook until the peel just starts to pull away from the banana.
Remove the bananas from the grill and peel.
Add 2 banana halves to each banana split dish.
Top with strawberry ice cream, candied pecans, whipped cream and hot fudge sauce.
Put a cherry on top and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Now you're ready to serves this famous dessert with a twist.
