Grilled Bananas with Ice Cream and Hot Chocolate Sauce

This dessert is easy to make on a cleaned rack after grilling a main course.


  • 1/2 gallon favorite vanilla ice cream
  • 4 firm, ripe bananas
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar


  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Peel bananas and halve lengthwise.
  3. In a shallow baking pan large enough to hold bananas in one layer, stir together butter and brown sugar and add bananas, tossing gently to coat.
  4. Transfer bananas with a metal spatula to an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals and grill until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes on each side. (If bananas are difficult to handle you may grill them on one side only.)
  5. Serve bananas like a banana split with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
