To assemble the banana split, slice the bananas lengthways and cook in a saute pan with a little butter. Peel the pineapple and cut into 1-inch rings. Remove the core. Add the pineapple to pan and cook until both are golden brown. Add the sugar and the rum. Flambe and stand aside. Place on the plate, bananas first, face up. Top with the pineapple ring. Pour any pan juices over the fruit. Drizzle a little of the Chocolate Rum Sauce over the dessert and the plate. Garnish with whipped cream and plantain chips. Serve with Coconut Sorbet.
