Sometimes a good old fashioned dessert hits the spot. Yeah!
French vanilla ice cream (use a premium brand made with real vanilla seeds)
1 cup sliced strawberries, or whole raspberries
A little dark rum (optional)
Chocolate sauce or maple syrup
4 wafer biscuits or biscotti
Chocolate hail, silver balls or sprinkles
1 Peel and slice bananas either down the length, then into shorter pieces, or into long pieces cut on the diagonal. Arrange bananas in glasses with strawberries, marshmallows and scoops of ice cream, adding a splash of rum to each glass (if using).
2 Drizzle generously with chocolate sauce or maple syrup. Garnish with wafers and a pinch or two of chocolate hail, silver balls or sprinkles. Serve immediately.
