Banana Split Ice Box Cake – With Coupons


This summer my friend called me up and insisted I make this dessert. It was delicious. It was pretty. And I could even make it :) When my family came up for the weekend I thought I’d give it a try and indeed-it was absolutely delicious. I am reposting this with all the latest coupons so you can enjoy this awesome, delicious dessert!!!

To make a Banana Split Icebox Cake you will need:

1 package of vanilla pudding
1 small container (8 oz) of sour cream
1 thing of whip cream (I did mine homemade, you will need about 6 cups)
1 8oz can of CRUSHED pineapple, drained
Almost a box (about 2 packages) of Honey Maid graham crackers
2 bananas
Some additional strawberries and bananas as a topping

For the chocolate topping (or just use Hershey’s syrup-I won’t judge if not everything is homemade):
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1/4 cup chocolate chips

In a mixer, combine the whip cream, pudding, sour cream until well blended. Fold in the pineapple. Lay 4 graham crackers down in a rectangle shape. Scoop the filling into a ziploc back, cut a very tiny bit of the bottom corner off (you can always cut more off if you need to) and pipe on top the graham crackers. Throw on about half a thinly sliced banana. Add another layer of graham crackers and repeat til you have 6 layers of graham crackers with filling on top. Or, just go until it looks like you are going to run out of filling. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for 8 hours. The graham crackers will get nice and soft. Just before you serve, slice up some strawberries and bananas, make the chocolate syrup, and decorate the top.

TIPS:
Bananas turn brown very quick. Try to make sure you don’ have bananas hanging over the sides or they will turn brown and look ugly.
Don’t be scared to use saran wrap! I was worried it would stick to the top and be a mess, but it wasn’t.
Make sure you add the toppings last so they are fresh. And I only did strawberries on top, loved it still.
I didn’t have crushed pineapple, so I just threw in the chunks I had on hand. Still turned out good, although next time I would rather have crushed.

Other Ideas:
My Dad doesn’t like banana, and I am picky on my banana desserts. Next time I would consider leaving off the banana and just going with strawberries all through the cake. Of course, then it wouldn’t be banana split. Or maybe I’d do half banana and half strawberry in the center and alternate the layers, I like strawberries better and they’re in season. I would also crumble up some graham cracker and sprinkle on the top (under the strawberries/chocolate).
