Banana Split Ice Cream Cake
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 half gallon of softened ice cream (your choice of flavor)
  • 1 container chocolate syrup
  • 1c. strawberries, chop and lightly sweeten fresh or use thawed frozen ones
  • 3 or 4 bananas sliced and quartered for 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1 jar caramel topping
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple
  • 2 packages Oreo cookies (crushed well, I use the food processor)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans for sprinkling on top if desired
  • 1 small jar cherries
  • 1 can whipped cream for decorating individual servings
DIRECTIONS
  1. Lightly oil (or spray) 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the bottoms with cookie crumbs, and press softened ice cream over crumbs until it they are just covered. Drizzle chocolate sauce and caramel sauce over all. Now sprinkle with the pieces of fruit...repeat until pan is full or you run out of ingredients, I try for three layers but two are fine. I have found that using my hands to press the ice cream into the pan give you more control and makes the most even layers. The last layer should be crumbs and nuts if desired. Freeze overnight or at least 6hrs. Cut into squares with a knife dipped in hot water. Serve in a bowl topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
