Banana Split Dessert

2 cups graham crackers crumbs
2 or 3 bananas, sliced
1/2 gallon to 3/4 gallon ice cream. (The amount will depend on the size of pan you use.)
1 tub cool whip
Chopped nuts (optional)
1 pkg. chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 can canned milk, (evaporated not condensed)

Line bottom of 9x13 pan with graham cracker crumbs. Slice bananas and carefully place on top of crumbs. Freeze for 15 minutes.

Melt ice cream enough to spread it around and cover bottom.
Put chopped nuts over top and freeze for four hours.
Make a sauce of chocolate chips, butter, powdered sugar and milk and bring to a boil and stir until thickened.
Cool sauce and spread over nuts. Freeze for 1 hour.
Spread whipped topping over all then cover with the other cup of graham cracker crumbs and freeze.
Serves 15

Note: It is important to freeze each layer before adding another layer.

Just made this again. I didn't like the sauce inside the dessert. I think it would taste better and look better if it were drizzled over the top.

My kids won't eat nuts, so the first picture shows how I made it, with only half of the pan in nuts and banans.

The second picture shows the softened ice cream, just ready to be smoothed over. Next would come the chocolate layer and then the whipped topping layer.

I found those frozen bananas hard to eat, as I have sensitive teeth.
Make this dish at the height of summer, if you want to cool down.
