Servings: 8

8 bamboo chopsticks or 10-inch bamboo skewers
4 large ripe but firm bananas
Vegetable oil, as needed
2 pints tropical-flavor ice cream (I served both Haagen-Dazs pineapple coconut and mango ice creams)
1/2 cup high-quality chocolate and/or caramel sauces
Sweetened whipped cream (optional)
Sundae goodies and garnishes: chopped fresh pineapple, sliced kumquats if in season, Trader Joe's Dark Roasted Pistachio Toffee, edible flowers or toasted coconut

Soak chopsticks or skewers in water for 10 to 15 minutes. Peel bananas and cut each crosswise into 2 pieces. Carefully thread each piece lengthwise onto a skewer. Lightly brush bananas with vegetable oil on each side.

On a preheated, medium-high to high grill, cook bananas for about 12 minutes total, turning with a spatula every 4 minutes or so, to get caramelized grill marks on them. Bananas should be nice and soft when cooked.

Serve atop scoops of ice cream in large bowls. Let guests finish topping their sundaes with sauces, whipped cream, fruit, toffee and garnishes.
