    Serves: 6


    6 ripe Fairtrade Windwards bananas
    500ml tub Waitrose Madagascan Vanilla Ice Cream
    12 Waitrose Proven├žal Natural Colour Cherries, halved
    25g whole shelled Brazil nuts, roughly sliced

    For the chocolate sauce

    100g bar Divine Fairtrade Milk Chocolate
    25g butter
    25g Billington's Fairtrade Demerara Sugar
    1 tbsp golden syrup
    2 tbsp semi-skimmed milk


    1. Make the chocolate sauce by placing the chocolate, butter, sugar and golden syrup in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Do not allow the bowl to come into contact with the water.
    2. Heat gently, stirring occasionally, until all the ingredients have melted and are thoroughly combined. Stir in the milk and keep the sauce warm by leaving over the warm water but turning off the heat until ready to serve.
    3. Assemble the banana splits by peeling and halving the bananas lengthways and placing each one in a banana split dish or shallow bowl. Place 2 scoops of ice cream between each banana, top with the warm sauce and scatter with the cherries and Brazils.
