Electrolux #Splits: Goofy Goober Banana Sundae

Just recently Foodbuzz helped Electrolux and Kelly Ripa raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund by sending two Foodbuzz Featured Publishers to New York and giving them an opportunity to make banana splits with their kids. 

Foodbuzz is sponsoring a posting challenge and Top 9 takeover! In a Top 9 Takeover, Foodbuzz asks all Featured Publishers to construct a post around a theme, and then for one day only, all Top 9 posts reflect that theme!  As a featured publisher on Foodbuzz I was given the opportunity to take part in the campaign, with banana splits being the theme!

The best part is that Foodbuzz is donating $50 for every banana split post by a featured publisher.  It’s a win-win situation, we get to eat banana splits for breakfast dessert and $50 will be donated to Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

My kids are HUGE Spongebob Squarepants fans, so it was fitting that my “banana split” was named after Spongebob’s favorite treat, the Goofy Goober Sundae.  The “banana split” I made is not your traditional banana split.  I decided to slice the banana and put them in a pan with a butter and brown sugar mixture.  I also made a chocolate sauce that hardens on the ice cream, just like the magic shells you can buy at the grocery stores.  Neopolitan ice cream was used and I topped of the sundae with whipped cream (regular or french vanilla) and of course a cherry on top.

Can you see the butter and brown sugar on the bottom?  Yes, it was as yummy as it looked.

Okay, okay stop drooling I will show you guys how to make the bananas and chocolate sauce.
