Melissa's Cuisine: "That One Dessert"

"That One Dessert"

You may have noticed by now that I like to experiment and try new things.  Especially when it comes to food!  Put me in the middle of a specialty grocery store and I could spend hours browsing through the selection.  I could also spend lots of money there, so that's why I tend to avoid specialty stores.  One day, I was at my "favorite" grocery store when I saw these incredible waffle cone bowls.  I got super excited and I had to buy a box.  Now, I know they're not really new or different, but until recently I'd only seen them at ice-cream shops, never in the store!  I bought a box, brought it home, and there it sat.  Waiting for the perfect use.  (Because just using them for ice-cream was way too boring!)

This snack...or dessert...was created on a whim one night.  I wanted something fruit, but sweet.  Chocolaty, but not overpoweringly so.  And so, this creation was born.  I immediately knew it was a keeper.  A few nights later, Mike requested dessert and I asked if I could surprise him.  He agreed and so I put together my creation again.  I knew I'd hit the jackpot when Mike loved it, and requested it again a few nights later!  Since then, we've had this dessert many times.  I'll admit, I even enjoyed it for lunch one day :)

Feel free to experiment with other fruits, white chocolate chips, or even nuts.  Whatever suits your fancy--I'm sure it will be delicious!

As far as the title for this post "That One Dessert"...Mike and I could not come up with a name for this dessert.  When I make it, we typically refer to it as "that one dessert" "you know, the one with strawberries, bananas, chocolate chips, and marshmallows in the waffle bowl?"  But that makes for an awfully long recipe name!  So, if you come up with a fantastic name, I'd love to hear it!  And, if I choose your name, I'll post a link to your blog giving you the credit!
That One Dessert!

Serves 2

You will need:
2 waffle bowls
1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
1 banana, sliced
6 strawberries, sliced
20 mini marshmallows

1.  Sprinkle a few chocolate chips in the bottom of each waffle bowl.  Place bowls on a cookie sheet.

2.  Place waffle bowls under your broiler for about 30 seconds, just so the chocolate melts.  (You can skip this step, but I always do this so the bottom layer of chocolate is melted.)

3.  Place a few banana slices in the bottom of each bowl, followed by a few strawberry slices, and topped with a few chocolate chips.  Repeat layers.

4.  Sprinkle marshmallows on top of each fruit-filled bowl.

5.  Place under your broiler for 1-2 minutes, just until the marshmallows turn golden brown.

Eat as is, or topped with whipped topping, or ice-cream
The perfect bite!!!


  1. Yum, yum, yum! And Mike is sure lucky!

  2. That looks so good! I pinned it to try this summer, as soon as I find the waffle bowl. I did find chocolate chip cookie bowls on Pinterest where you mold the dough around the bottom of a muffin pan and then bake. I would love it if you would link this up to my linky party at Hope to see you there!

  3. Wow, this sounds interesting! Never thought of toasting marshmallows in a dessert (besides s'mores) before.

  4. Ohhhhhh, I love it! It's almost like a banana split, without the ice cream.

  5. This sounds amazing! I wish I had the ingredients NOW!
