Too cold outside to run and get ice cream? In Florida, it is never too cold for ice cream. But I am sure in like Maine where you are freezing your ass off, the last thing on your mind is a big ol bowl of Rocky Road? So I present you will your alternative, Banana Split salad. I could literally shove my face in this bowl and lick it clean. SERIOUSLY! And it is from Paula Deen so you know it has to be ridiculously yummy!
I just had a memory pop into my head..I remember in High School, me and my dear friend Patti(rest her soul) would sit on the couch and eat a pint of ice cream(a pint each), sulking because our boyfriends didn’t call(bastards..you know who you are:) ). Countless times this happened. Remember those days of jerky boyfriends and fast metabolisms!!!???????
Enough rambling..on to the recipe….make it and you will drool! Promise!
