This cookie is always a big hit on a cookie tray. I enjoy making it for holiday celebrations because it is so festive looking. The taste is wonderful and does remind you of a banana split. Yumm.

I hope you enjoy this yummy bar cookie that is a recipe from my "Best-Loved Chocolate Recipes" cookbook.
