Treat Tuesday #4...

Tuesday Treat -
Ice Cream Banana Split Dessert

A family favorite.  We served this up at my daughter's going-away party this past Sunday.

She is leaving for Nebraska.  More on that in tomorrow's post! 

*2 cups of graham crackers, crushed                     *1/2 cup butter
* 2 to 3 bananas, sliced (in circles)                         *2 cups confectioners' sugar
*1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream                                   *1 and 1/2 cup evaporated milk
*1 cup chopped walnuts                                           *1 tsp. vanilla
*1 cup chocolate chips                                             *Cool Whip

-Cover bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan with 1 cup graham crackers.
-Slice bananas and layer over crackers, covering crackers.
-Slice ice cream and lay over bananas; smooth ice cream slices together with knife.
