Banana Sundae Dessert
Source: Taste of Home
12 ounces (1 package) vanilla wafers, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon sugar
6 cups cookies and cream ice cream, slightly softened
3 large bananas, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups hot fudge topping, plus more for drizzling over each piece
6 cups cherry vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
1. Combine crushed wafers, butter and sugar. Press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 in baking dish. Freeze for 15 minutes.
2. Remove from freezer and spread slightly softened cookies and cream ice cream over top of crust. (I didn’t need to soften the ice cream in my freezer – it was plenty soft already. However, you can put it in a bowl in the fridge for 15-30 minutes to soften or leave it out on the counter for a couple of minutes, if it’s too hard to spread.) Arrange bananas in a single layer on top of the ice cream. Return to freezer and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
3. Remove from freezer and spread slightly softened cherry vanilla ice cream over hot fudge layer. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Serve with warm hot fudge topping drizzled over top. (I had to use a sharp knife to cut through the dessert in order to serve it, but it popped right out after that.)
