A banana split and a pie walk into a bar … wait, this isn’t a joke. This is a real-deal dessert, combining two of life’s most glorious treats. You’ve got chocolate ice cream, maraschino ice cream, vanilla ice cream, and sliced bananas tucked into an ingenious sugar-cone crust, topped with whipped cream and hot fudge.

Are you drooling yet?

The best part of this ice cream pie is the sugar-cone crust. You crush sugar cones with butter and sugar, then press the mixture into your pan to create the base.

To create the “banana split,” spread a layer of chocolate ice cream over the crust, followed by banana slices, a layer of maraschino cherry ice cream, more banana slices, and a layer of vanilla ice cream. After letting the pie chill, top it with fresh whipped cream and a drizzle of homemade hot fudge sauce.

This dessert-lover’s dream will keep you cool all summer long.
