When my sister and I lived in Arizona, we would come up to Utah and visit our family, at least once a month. Mom would go all out and make an amazing family dinner for us. I always looked forward to it. One of the things I loved the most, was her desserts. She used to make these delicious ice cream sandwich cakes. Everyone loved them!
I called her last week when I was grocery shopping and asked her how she made it. It had been so long, she couldn’t really remember, so that’s how this little beauty was born. As I was chattin’ with Mom, we came up with this Banana Split version. It has two layers of ice cream sandwiches, with fresh strawberries, bananas and pineapple packed in between. I let it freeze overnight to ensure it would be nice and frozen. When it was time to dig in, I served it with drizzles of chocolate sauce and caramel and finished it with some cool whip and a cherry on top!
