YUM! This is a great dessert. I followed the directions, but would suggest chilling the desert before adding the chocolate sauce on top of the vanilla ice cream. I used Bryers splenda brand ice cream, and it was soooo good. I also added cherries, whipped cream, fresh pineapple slices, chopped peanuts, and the rest of the chocolate sauce to the top. I assembled the dessert in a springform pan which allowed it to keep it's shape. I made this the night before and then allowed it to thaw a while before serving. Also sliced each piece with a wet knife. This is perfect when you are in the mood for a banana split!! So Good!!
