Sprinkles or Jimmies? What do you call those little confections on top of Banana Splits? I call them Jimmies. I put the whipped cream, jimmies and a cherry "on the side" of this delicious ice cream cake. The chocolate sauce is amazing!
You will need:
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted plus 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 4-5 medium bananas, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
- 1-1/2 quarts strawberry ice cream, softened (your choice of ice cream of course)
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 8-ounce container whipped topping
Place the bananas in a single layer over the crust.
Spread the softened ice cream on top and smooth. Sprinkle the nuts on the ice cream, then cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
In a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and the remaining 1/4 cup butter and stir until smooth. Add the confectioner's sugar and evaporated milk. Cook, stirring constantly over medium heat until slightly thickened and smooth, about 8 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in vanilla. Cool the mixture, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the mixture over the ice cream and freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
Spread the whipped topping over the chocolate layer and sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Remove from freezer about 20 minutes before slicing. Serves 18
