Banana Split Advice 

Banana splits often include chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream, but you may get inventive. Vanilla custard, peanut butter, and cookie dough ice cream are my choices.

As a banana split involves more labor than serving scoops of plain ice cream, you may be inclined to make the sundaes ahead of time, especially for your summer BBQ.  

Can banana splits be made ahead?
