A summer time favorite treat in delicious, layered form, these Banana Split Bars will wow all the guests at the BBQ! Cool and creamy and totally dreamy, what more could you want in a sweet treat when it’s hot outside?
I’ve been thinking about ice cream sundaes since the weather first started warming up. Some of my favorite toppings are nuts, bananas, berries, and of course chocolate syrup!
So I decided to mix things up a bit and put these best-loved ingredients into a cake pan in layered form, because, why not? I subbed in some banana cream pudding for the ice cream. I think you and your taste buds will agree that, that was a genius decision.
Don’t forget the colorful sprinkles! They add fun and festivity to every glorious bite!
This week we are having a serious heat wave. It should be illegal to have to experience 99 degree temps in the mountains. Especially with nothing but a swamp cooler for reprieve. But, I’m just thinking of the poor folks in town below us that are sweating through the 100’s. So I’ll try not to complain. 🙂
Instead, you’ll find me here happily stuffing my face with this cool Banana Split dessert.
I promised the kids we’d go to the pool and play in the sprinklers…lots. And I’m sure we’ll be plowing through the popsicle supply in the freezer. I really do love this time of year, despite the heat. It’s so fun having the kids home all summer.
They just finished a session of swimming lessons. I got a kick out of watching them progress in their confidence and skills in the pool. They also wrapped up a session of tennis lessons, which we’ll be continuing next month. I somehow always convince myself that things will slow down in the summer time, but instead I always find myself going full speed ahead, trying to work in every ounce of fun possible with the kids before school starts up again. It’s exhausting, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! There are memories to make, after all!
And speaking of memories, you’ll have very fond thoughts when you recall the experience of enjoying these luscious Banana Split Bars! They’ll become not just a summer time, but a year round tradition!
This is the perfect potluck item for gatherings with friends and family! Just beware, these will disappear fast!
