Hello yum! Seriously how can you go wrong when there is literally a cherry on top of the cupcake! How long has it been since you enjoyed a Banana Split? I was trying to think of the last Banana Split that I enjoyed. I think it might have been a DQ Blizzard that was banana split flavored. I think it may be time to whip up some banana splits for a fun sweet dessert later this week. Until then we get to enjoy these delicious Banana Split Cupcake Recipe! I love that they are made from scratch and taste so good.

Filling and Baking the cupcakes
I used a Cupcake Separators to divide the batter. Then use a small food scoop or a spoon to place a small amount of chocolate cake batter on the side of each cupcake liner. Then scoop a small amount of banana cake batter next to it. Pull out the plastic divider.
Bake the cupcakes in the oven for 15-20 minutes
Let cool before frosting
2 C. Butter (room temp)
6-8 C Powered sugar
1 TBSP Vanilla
2 drops of red food coloring
1 TBSP of Strawberry flavoring or 1 cup of freshly washed berries smashed
Add Butter, vanilla, strawberries to the bowl begin to add the powdered sugar one cup at a time and beat until well blended. Increase the speed to med. Speed until light and fluffy.
Place frosting in a pastry bag and pipe onto the top of the cupcakes.
Decorate by drizzling chocolate fudge on top and a dash of candy sprinkles.
