  • 1-2/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 5 medium firm bananas
  • 1/2 gallon Neapolitan or vanilla ice cream (block carton)
  • Hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed, optional


  1. In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom of an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  2. Cut bananas into slices and layer over crust. Cut ice cream widthwise into 3/4-in. slices; place over bananas. Spread edges of ice cream slices to cover bananas and form a smooth layer. Freeze until firm.
  3. Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving. Serve with hot fudge topping if desired.
