    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    There is some debate in our ice cream parlor what the "traditional" split consists of. I did some research before we opened and it seems that this is the most consistently "traditional" split served, even though some have marshmallow, peanuts, crushed cherries and more. I prefer hot fudge over the chocolate syrup, personally :P

    3. 3
      Slice in half longways.
    4. 4
      Pop each half of the banana out of the peel onto each side of the ice cream row, pressing down and in a little so it'll stay put.

      Spoon the wet walnuts over all three scoops of ice cream.

      I like Ilysse! My kind of mom! :D Thank you so much for doing the research on the banana split! I've wanted to know this for quite a while, but never remembered to look it up. This sounds simply delicious and will be on the dessert menu for tonight. :D

      Good stuff, the kids thought I lost my mind when I served these for dinner Wed night lol, but they were really good. Personally, I think it was healthier than fast food (omega3s from the nuts, calcium from the ice cream - I used low fat but frozen yogurt would be good too if you can find the right flavors - and fruit from the banana, strawberries and pineapple) and it's better to eat it for dinner than try to shove it in on top of a full meal. :) Will make them again, maybe for breakfast ;)
