Honey Rum Grilled Banana Split

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.

Today is the final day of #BBQWeek, and what an awesome week it has been!  I know that my summer menu just got a whole lot better!  I wanted to end the week off with a dessert, and there were so many great choices on the Taste of Home website, I had a hard time choosing.  I saw this recipe for Honey Rum Grilled Bananas from Lori W., and it sounded just perfect with the beautiful weather we've been having.

I upped the ante a little bit, and instead of just serving it with ice cream, I added some of the traditional banana split flavors: pineapple, strawberry, chocolate shavings, whipped cream and cherries. The guys had theirs with all three flavors of ice cream, but I went straight vanilla bean.  They also used hot fudge instead of the shaved dark chocolate. You definitely could go ahead and grill the strawberries and pineapple too and put it completely over the top!

Thank you again to Ellen at Family Around the Table, Christie at A KitchenHoor's Adventures for all of their hard work for this event, and to all the #FestiveFoodies for sharing their recipes.   Huge thanks to our sponsors, Adams Extracts, Not Ketchup and Michigan Asparagus. I've got several more recipes to share using their great products in the upcoming weeks.  Be sure to enter for your chance to win one of the three awesome prize packages!
