OLD FASHIONED BANANA SPLIT

By Coleen's Recipes


This week, when hubby put ice cream on the grocery list, I set out to make some toppings to go along. You don't see banana splits much anymore, but they were a "big deal" when I was young. On special occasions, my parents treated us to ice cream at a local drive-in. I have fond memories of all six of us crowded into the family station wagon eating ice cream; my fathers favorite was a banana split.

CHOCOLATE TOPPING

2/3 CUP UNSWEETENED COCOA POWDER
1 & 2/3 CUPS WHITE SUGAR
1 & 1/4 CUPS MILK
1 TEASPOON VANILLA
2 TABLESPOONS LIGHT CORN SYRUP

In a large sauce pan, over medium heat, combine the cocoa, sugar and milk. Bring it to a boil (stirring) and let it boil for one minute. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Tastes good warm or cold.

STRAWBERRY TOPPING

1 POUND OF RIPE STRAWBERRIES (washed and hulled)
1/2 CUP WHITE SUGAR
1/4 CUP WATER
1 TEASPOON VANILLA (the vanilla is my daughters brainstorm, its delicious)

Chop the strawberries into medium size pieces (I use the food processor) and cook them in a heavy bottomed sauce pan with the water and sugar until it gets nice and thick. Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla and chill.

PRALINE TOPPING (this is SO tasty)

1/4 CUP BUTTER
1 & 1/4 CUPS BROWN SUGAR (packed)
16 LARGE MARSHMALLOWS
2 TABLESPOONS LIGHT CORN SYRUP
DASH OF SALT
1 CUP OF EVAPORATED (canned) MILK
1/2 CUP OF TOASTED PECANS
1 TEASPOON VANILLA EXTRACT

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in the sugar, marshmallows, syrup and salt. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Boil (actually VERY low boil) for one minute. Remove from heat and cool for five minutes. Stir in evaporated milk, nuts and vanilla, mix well. This is good warm or cold.
