For this chocolate banana sundae, you will need banana, plain chocolate, golden syrup, double cream and a few other indulgent ingredients. Prepare the ice cream scoops in advance by scooping onto a baking sheet lined with baking parchment then place in the freezer for a couple of hours to really firm up. Chill the glasses in the fridge for an hour and assemble the sundaes just a few minutes before serving. We love topping this sundae with homemade brownies using our chocolate brownie recipe.


  • 150g plain chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 50g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2tbsp golden syrup
  • 100ml double cream
  • 1 litre vanilla ice cream
  • 1 litre chocolate ice cream
  • 1 large banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1tbsp chopped mixed nuts
  • Chocolate dipped wafers, to serve




  1. To make the chocolate sauce, place the chocolate, butter, syrup and cream in a pan and heat very gently, whisking all the time until the chocolate and butter have melted. Whisk together until smooth and glossy. Remove from the heat and cool for 15-20mins, whisking occasionally.
  2. Scoop the ice creams into four large sundae glasses along with the sliced banana. Spoon the chocolate sauce over the ice cream and sprinkle with the chopped nuts. Serve immediately with chocolate coated wafers.
