Who doesn't love Banana Splits ? We sure do in our family, and cheesecake too. these have it all , a Brownie crust, Banana cheesecake and then topped off with Pineapple Jam, Strawberries and I like to add some fine chopped peanuts too, you could also drizzle on some Chocalate and add some Cherries. This recipe is from our newspaper, with some of my ideas added.
