Frozen Banana Split

This was the dessert that I decided to make for Father's Day. I had asked my father what he wanted for dessert and he told me a Banana Split. So i took it upon myself to find a different recipe for it! By the way.... IT WAS SOOO YUMMY! Just an fyi... the bananas freeze pretty good so its a good idea to take it out of the freezer maybe a 1/2 hr before serving so they soften a little bit.

Recipe courtesy of Paula Deen

 24 (3.5-ounce) ice-cream sandwiches, unwrapped
 6 medium bananas, peeled and thinly sliced
 1 (12.25-ounce) jar hot-fudge sauce
 1 (10-ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained and finely chopped
 1 (8-ounce) package milk chocolate covered toffee bits, divided (i omitted this)
 1 (12.25-ounce) jar butterscotch ice-cream topping (not a fan of butterscotch so i used caramel)
 1 (8-ounce) container frozen nondairy whipped topping, thawed

Line a 13 by 9-inch baking pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Place half of ice-cream sandwiches evenly over bottom of pan, completely covering bottom,
cutting sandwiches to fit, if necessary. Top evenly with banana slices. Pour hot fudge sauce
over bananas. Top with cherries and 1/2 of the toffee bits ( i omitted) and pour butterscotch (I used Caramel )evenly on
top. Layer with remaining ice cream sandwiches and spread whipped topping over
sandwiches; sprinkle with remaining toffee bits ( I chose to sprinkle with walnuts on 1/2 in case anyone did not like them instead of the toffee bits).

Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours. Remove from pan, using foil handles. Cut into squares
and serve.
