Banana Split Cupcakes.

Recipe 17.

Banana Split Cupcakes (from Heat Oven to 350, again).

If maraschino cherries aren't your thing, you may want to rethink these. But if you love them, this is the cupcake for you! I'm impartial to them, really. But it was so fun to make a dessert within a dessert!

1 yellow cake mix (box or homemade)
1 cup water
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
3 eggs
1 cup chopped drained maraschino cherries
1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 1/2 cups prepared vanilla frosting
1 cup marshmallow creme
30 whole maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry

Heat oven to 350 and line your cupcake pans with liners! Save 2 tablespoons of your cake mix for later, and combine the cake mix, water, bananas, and eggs in a large bowl. Beat until moistened, and then beat at a medium speed for 2 more minutes.

Chop up a cup of the cherries. This part is messy but fun! Combine the cherries with the 2 tablespoons of cake mix, and add them to the mixture, along with the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the liners and bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool, as in let them become room temperature. But they also are really cool.

Combine the frosting and marshmallow creme in a bowl until well blended to make the marshmallow frosting. Annndddd put a cherry on top!
