Banana split bites
1 c. chocolate chips
1 Tbsp shortening
2 or 3 bananas cut into 2" slices and hollowed out but leaving a half inch of banana on the bottom
1 c whipping cream
1 Tbsp cherry liquor or pineapple vodka
2 Tbsp honey
1c Chopped peanuts
Caramel sauce
Maraschino cherries

In a double boiler melt the chocolate and shortening.
Dip the bottom half of the bananas in the chocolate and roll in the peanuts. Let set on a lined cookie sheet
Whip the cream until soft peaks form and then add the honey and liquor and beat til firm
Using a Ziploc bag add your whipped cream and cut off a corner of the bag and pipe the cream into the hollow part of the banana.
Drizzle with the caramel, sprinkle the remaining nuts and top with one cherry per cup. Eat as soon as they are made because bananas tend to oxidize
