Nothing says summer like banana splits and smore's. I'm a huge fan of smore's and well hubby and DS love themselves banana splits. Since today is national banana split and smore's day we both win. Plus extra bonus is it's hubby's birthday!

So I will have some different types of smore's and split recipes and links as usual! Enjoy!!!!

Smore's Pops
1 bag large marshmallows
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 package cinnamon or honey graham crackers (about 9 long/large crackers) – or just buy graham cracker crumbs
lollipop sticks (available in cake decorating aisles)

 Begin by twisting the lollipop sticks until they are securely in the middle of the marshmallows.  (Insert them on the flat, not rounded, side of the marshmallows.  Then push them in until they almost pop through.)  Then place the graham crackers in a strong ziplock bag, and use a rolling pin (or whatever you’d like) to crush them until they are finely ground.  Then place them in a small bowl.
Then heat the chocolate chips in a double-boiler or (carefully!) in the microwave until they are melted and somewhat runny.
While holding the stick, carefully dip a marshmallow in the chocolate mixture until completely covered.  Then gently roll the sides and top of the marshmallow in the graham cracker crumbs until they are well-coated.  Place on a plate or on wax paper to let cool and dry.  Repeat with remaining marshmallows.

Banana Split Recipe
1/2 cup scoop vanilla ice cream
 1/2 cup scoop chocolate ice cream 
1/2 cup scoop strawberry ice cream
 1 large ripe banana 
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup (or Hot Fudge) 
2 tablespoons strawberry ice cream topping (or fresh strawberries) 
2 tablespoons crushed pineapple 
2 tablespoons wet walnut ice cream topping 
whipped cream 

Line up ice cream scoops next to each other in an oval deep dish or a banana boat. Cut the ends of the banana off (about 1/4 inch) while still in the peel. Slice in half longways. Pop each half of the banana out of the peel onto each side of the ice cream row, pressing down and in a little so it'll stay put. Top the vanilla ice cream with the pineapple, the chocolate with the chocolate syrup and the strawberry with the strawberry sauce.  Spoon the wet walnuts over all three scoops of ice cream. Top each scoop with some whipped cream and a cherry for each. Enjoy!
