Baby Banana Splits

This is the best way to eat a banana split in my opinion.  And there are not any bad ways to eat a banana split...

Baby Banana Splits
2 bananas, peeled
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 T shortening
1/4 cup sprinkles
1 jar Maraschino cherries
1 can whipped cream

Horizontally slice the bananas into thirds.
In a double broiler, melt the chocolate chips and the shortening, stirring often.
Dip the bananas each 1/2 way into the chocolate.
Dunk the chocolate end into the sprinkles.
Place the bananas onto a piece of parchment paper, and place them into the freezer for 15 minutes.
Remove the bananas from the freezer and top with a squirt of whipped cream and a cherry.
Serve and enjoy!
