Banana Split Ice Cream Cake
Added on Jul 09, 2019
3 Bananas, sliced
20 NILLA Wafers
2 pints strawberry ice cream, softened
2 pints chocolate ice cream, softened
15 Oreo cookies
chocolate syrup, for serving
chopped walnuts, for serving
Sprinkles, for serving
Whipped cream, for serving
Maraschino cherries, for serving

Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray then line with plastic wrap. Start with the banana, laying the slices in the bottom of the loaf pan to create a full single layer. (This will be the top of your cake.) Dollop large scoops of softened strawberry ice cream on top and smooth with an offset spatula. Create another layer of banana slices on top, then create a layer of Nilla wafers. Freeze for about 1 hour, or until the ice cream is firm.
When the ice cream is set, dollop large scoops of softened chocolate ice cream on top and smooth. Add another layer of banana slices and finish with a layer of Oreo's, to create a chocolate cookie crust. You may need to halve some Oreo's to completely cover the bottom. Cover the cake with plastic wrap and freeze for another 1-2 hours, or until the ice cream hardens.
When the ice cream is set, run a knife around the plastic wrap to loosen the cake, and invert the cake onto a serving platter. Remove the plastic wrap. Garnish with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, walnuts, sprinkles and maraschino cherries. Slice crosswise and enjoy!
