I do not like banana splits. Just give me the ice cream!
I’ve had Bananas Foster once, but I prefer apple crisp.
But my friends served this dessert a couple of weeks ago, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it!
It’s like a song that got stuck in my head. And the only way to stop obsessing about the creamy mascarpone and drizzly caramel was to make my own. Obviously.
The banana isn’t just a vehicle for the cheese and caramel, either! The textures pair perfectly, and the banana and mascarpone blend together in a creamy, soft goodness.
Maybe I should take another look at bananas, huh?
Bananas with Honeyed Mascarpone & Caramel Sauce

8 oz Mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp honey
6-8 ripe bananas
Whip the mascarpone and the honey until everything is thoroughly incorporated and fluffy. Put a dollop of the cheese on a plate, and top with a banana and generous amount of caramel sauce.
