Gay Nineties Ice-Cream Party

Banana Splits

Old-fashioned ice-cream socials are in again! String a few paper lanterns; enlist big brothers as shirtsleeved, straw-hatted waiters. If you’re lucky, you may find a volunteer barber shop quartet. The children will only have eyes for gooey banana splits.

For each serving, peel and slice 1 banana lengthwise in half; place in shallow dish. Top banana with 1 scoop each of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream.

Spoon chocolate sauce over chocolate ice cream, drained crushed pineapple over vanilla ice cream and frozen strawberries (thawed) over strawberry ice cream.

Garnish with a dollop of frozen whipped topping (thawed) and a maraschino cherry. If you wish, sprinkle with chopped nuts of peanuts.

For the little folks, try Kookie Kat Sundaes: For each serving, place 1 scoop ice cream in small dish. Make a face with colored candy-coated milk chocolate candies for eyes and mouth, wafer cookies for ears and, if you like, toasted coconut for hair.

For teenagers, offer a serve-yourself fountain of assorted sauces, fruits, nuts and other ice-cream toppings, plus go-with beverages, cookies or cake.
