Hi, cooking people!  /waves.  I hardly ever get over into this part of Craftster except to ooh and ahh at everyone else's food (is it just me, or has the cupcake world gone crazy lately?!), but I made something pretty nummy so I thought I'd share.

I'd been watching Top Chef this season, and when my dad came to visit me this past weekend, we decided to try to replicate Richard's banana scallops.  I wound up making these 4 times in 4 days, improving on them every time.  They've kind of morphed into something else besides the basic banana scallop that Richard made.

Basically, I cut a banana up into chunks about 1 - 1 1/2" thick.  Then I dipped these in orangecello (an orange liquor) and then into finely crushed graham cracker crumbs.  I placed them on a cookie sheet and then topped each banana scallop with a wee bit of muscovado sugar.  I smashed the sugar down into a thin layer, and then added a 1/4" slice of chocolate marshmallows on top of some of the bananas (some I just left with the sugar topping and no marshmallows).  After this, I either charred the tops with a torch - we had to use a propane torch since we don't have a little kitchen one - or threw the bananas into the toaster oven on broil until the tops were crispy.

Here's the result:





The recipe proper is posted here:  http://yarnzombie.net/craft/?p=90, but there's a lot of room for playing around and making up something really tasty using a similar idea.  All I know is that banana + marshmallow + caramelized sugar = love.  Smiley

That looks so. freaking. good. (Great pics, btw.) Thanks for the ideas!

I would totally eat these and count them as one of my daily fruit servings. Because, when you make stuff like this, only the banana counts, right?

I keep trying to decide if "Nom nom nom" is a proper response to all the food I long for on these boards. If anything needs a good nomming, it is these.

I think nom nom nom is always acceptable.  Smiley
