best Churro Chiquita Banana Split Recipe
Place 3/4 of each whole, peeled banana in middle of each egg roll wrapper. (Use a butter knife to cut off 1/4 of each banana. Save 1/4 of each banana for fourth egg roll wrapper.). Fold up bottom then sides and top of egg roll wrapper over banana like an envelope. Heat oil on medium heat in skillet. Add 2 egg roll-wrapped bananas at a time to pan and cook until crisp and golden brown on all sides. Use tongs to turn, making sure all sides are cooked crisp—approximately 10 minutes. Combine sugar and cinnamon and spread on plate. Roll each banana “churro” in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Shake off excess. Cut each cinnamon-sugar dusted, banana “churro” into fourths (4 pieces). On four serving plates, drizzle 1 Tbsp. chocolate syrup and place a 1/2 cup scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt in center. Arrange 4 pieces of banana churro, standing on end, on each plate. — Recipe idea courtesy of Shauna Evans for the Ultimate Chiquita Banana Recipe Contest.
