Frozen Banana Split Dessert

The long weekend is here and everyone is hoping for three consecutive blistering hot, sunny days. OK, maybe I'm the only one hoping for blistering hot, but I know everyone else is at the very least hoping for sunshine. If there's heat and sunshine it can only mean one cream! Here's an easy recipe for a fabulous dessert for the lazy days of summer.

Frozen Banana Split Dessert

Mix together:
3 cups graham wafer crumbs, 6 tablespoons sugar and 2/3 cup melted butter.
Set aside one cup of this mixture and press the rest into a 9" x 13" cake pan and let it cool.

Slice 4 or 5 bananas over the crust and smooth 1/2 gallon (2 litres) of soften vanilla ice cream over them.
Sprinkle 2 cups roasted pecans over the ice cream and freeze until solid.

Melt 1 cup chocolate chips with 1/2 cup butter
Then add 2 cups icing sugar, 1 cup evaporated milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla
Pour over chopped nuts and freeze solid.

Cover the entire dessert with 2 tubs of softened Cool Whip. Sprinkle on remaining crumbs and freeze. This can be sliced in squares and kept in the freezer for a sweet treat or easy dessert.

Happy long weekend to everyone.  Enjoy!
