I make this myself, though I add more butter :: grin ::: This is a WONDERFUL treat and usually can be made with what you have on hand. I also like to add some walnuts in there for a crunchy texture.

Incredibly delicious, and incredibly easy. Take an extra five minutes to add a touch of class to your simple vanilla ice cream. Including the optional ounce of rum is highly recommended.

I overcooked the bananas, so will add them last next time. I also added pecans and butterscotch topping. Even with the mushy bananas, a food sex moment.
