Banana Split Cookies

Chocolate, Recipe, Baking, Sweet Treat, Dessert

Last week I whipped up a new recipe and created banana pudding in cookie form. They were a HUGE hit with Joshua and my coworkers. So I decided to play around a bit more with the base of the cookies and change up another classic dessert. This idea kind of just hit me last Wednesday and I knew I had to give it a try ASAP! As I’m sure y’all have gathered if you follow the blog, my instagram, twitter, or snapchat at all that I LOVE ice cream. It’s my absolute favorite dessert! So I figured why not turn these banana pudding cookies into banana split cookies. Chuck full of “toppings” and all the extras everyone loves in a banana split. They honestly turned out even better than I had expected! Hope you love this little twist on another classic dessert!

Also find this adorable tray {c/o} here from A Thing Created. How stinking adorable is it? I’m in love! Erisha creates the most adorable pieces from prints to mugs to stationery and more. Definitely check her out. You’ll absolutely fall in love with everything. Her etsy shop is basically a blogger {and girly girls} dream.
