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 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.
