1 gallon of soften ice cream (vanilla, or banana, if you really want the “banana split” effect
1-2 cups crushed chocolate cookies to make a bottom layer to hold the soft ingredients (think, cheese cake crusts)
1 cup maraschino cherries
1 cup fruit preserves (your choice of pineapple, strawberry or other
1- 2 cups sweetened whip cream (for topping)
1/2 cup of nuts (to spring on top)
(optional – a drizzle of caramel sauce on the top — we know it’s not in the video, but doesn’t it sound delicious?)
