Banana Split Dessert
- 2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 c. butter, melted
Mix together. Press into 9×13 pan. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Cool completely.
- 16 oz. cream cheese
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream together. Spread over cooled crust.
Layers – (on top of cream cheese filling)
- Three sliced bananas.
- 12 oz. can crushed pineapple, well drained
- 12 oz. whipped topping
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
- Chocolate syrup (drizzle over all)
- 4 oz. maraschino cherries, halved
Refrigerate several hours, until served.
*** Make sure the pineapple covers the bananas well. They’ll keep the bananas from getting brown too fast.
*** This is a good one to make for a crowd, because it needs to be eaten about 24-hours after being made… again, because of the bananas.
