Banana Split Dessert
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 6 T butter
  • ¼ C granulated sugar
  • 5 C Rice Krispies cereal
  • 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 1 pint strawberries (about 2 cups), sliced
  • 8-ounce Cool Whip container
  1. Crust: *Grease bottom of 3-quart baking dish. Combine butter & sugar. Crush rice cereal (yields about 1¾ C). Add cereal crumbs to sugar and butter mixture. Press evenly into the bottom of the baking dish. Bake at 300 for 15 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Filling: In a small bowl, mix together (until fluffy) cream cheese and sugar. Gently spread filling mixture over the crust. Layer banana & strawberry slices on top of the filling. *Optional - add a small can of crushed pineapple (*drained)
  3. Topping: Spread whipped topping over fruit. Garnish with additional fruit as desired.
*If you want to make this "no-bake" you could actually use a couple of store-bought (or homemade) rice krispies treats pressed down in the bottom of the dish as crust. It really doesn't alter the taste too much.
