Reviews for Banana Split Icebox Cake
"Banana splits is my husbands favorite treat. My family loved this desert. I personally thought it was pretty good (4 stars), but I'm more of a cookie person and don't normally go for these types of desserts. However, my family raved and it was easy to make, so I'll be making this again. I used coconut instant pudding instead of vanilla which was tasty. I also ended up using a lot more bananas than the recipe called for. I made this in 9x9 foil disposable pan which allowed me to make 3 layers and I used a total of 5 bananas to cover all the layers and top my cake."
