Banana Split Recipe # 6
3 scoops of ice cream (Any flavors - vanilla is traditional)
walnuts packed in a syrup (in a jar)
2 red maraschino cherries
You need some type of long individual "boat" type of dish for a nice presentation. Peel the banana and slice it lengthwise so you have two long halves. Lay the halves, flat side up, in the dish.
I use put on three scoops of ice cream. Choose your own flavors but
vanilla tends to be traditional. A vanilla and strawberry blend also
works well. You also need "wet nuts". These are walnuts packed in a
syrup (in a jar). They're sold in supermarkets with the cones,
sprinkles and other ice cream fixings. Put a few spoonsful of nuts over
the ice cream. Layer on the whipped cream. I use three mounds of whipped cream,
one on top of each scoop of ice cream. You can also drizzle some
chocolate syrup gently over the whipped cream as well as sprinkles. Top
with some red maraschino cherries.
