Tip: To prevent your bananas from turning brown, soak them in lemon juice or lemon-lime soda for a few minutes beforehand. The lemon juice will change the flavor a little bit. I do not do either and while they do turn a slight brown, everyone is too busy enjoying it to notice.

Once that is mixed well, add your mini marshmallows and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill.

Place in individual bowls for serving and top with a halved cherry, crushed nuts, and mini chocolate chips.
