Crunchy Banana Splits

For dessert, this is a hurried-up version of friend ice cream. Coated with buttery crushed cereal and nuts, they're a heavenly treat for drop-in company.—Christine Panzarella, Buena Park, California


  • 2-1/2 cups crushed cornflakes
  • 5 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped pecans
  • 5 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 5 medium ripe bananas, quartered
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • Whipped topping and maraschino cherries


  • In a bowl, combine the cornflakes, butter and pecans. Drop ice cream by 1/2 cupfuls into cornflake mixture and roll into a ball. Place two banana quartered in each dessert dish. Top with an ice cream ball, chocolate syrup, whipped topping and a cherry.
