Banana Split Strawberries

Banana Split Strawberries


Ingredients:


2 C Fresh Strawberries

1/2 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

1/2 TBS Coconut Oil

Finely Chopped Nuts


1/2 C Heavy Cream

4oz Softened Cream Cheese

1/2 Banana, Mashed

1/4 C Well Drained Crushed Pineapple

4 TBS (About 1oz) Instant Pudding Mix in Vanilla or Banana


Maraschino Cherries, With Stems

Sprinkles

Hot Fudge


Directions:

 

1. Combine heavy cream, cream cheese, and instant pudding in a medium bowl and mix on medium speed until thick and fluffy. Fold in bananas and pineapple and refrigerate.

 

2. Wash and dry strawberries. Cut off top and bottom, as to create a flat surface to stand the berry. Using a small TBS measuring spoon core out the center of each strawberry and stand them upright on a prepared cookie sheet. 


3. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave on medium for 90 seconds. Stir until smooth and even. Dip the bottom of each strawberry in the chocolate and immediately into the nuts. Place dipped berries on a prepared parchment paper and freeze for 5 mins.


4. Remove berries from freezer and pipe generously with filling. Drizzle warmed hot fudge atop and top with sprinkles and a cherry. Serve fresh or freeze and thaw for 5 mins prior to serving for a frozen treat.
