Hi folks. Yes you are reading the post title correctly. I, being the Lunatic that I am, made a banana split with the ever popular Turtles candy I love so much. You may have read the post where I talked about stealing Turtles last year from hubs and B. You may have read about my Turtle Bark. You also may have read about my Turtle ice cream and the fact that we ended up with a gazillion boxes of it this Christmas. I am sure it had nothing to do with the fact that people read about last years heist and felt sorry for myself and mini-me. Nah, could not have been that.
So since it is my birthday weekend and no holds should be barred on a birthday weekend I decided to make myself a monster sized banana split. I did not want just any banana split. So I thought to myself, “self what is your favourite ice cream?” And my self almost blew out my eardrums yelling “Turtles, Turtles, Turtles!” I just so happened to have some homemade Turtle ice cream so now the anticipation was building what I could lay on this thing. So I went through my mental checklist:
Turtle Ice Cream- check
Whipped Cream- check
Turtles Candy- check
Skor Bits- check
Caramel Sauce- check and bonus it’s homemade
Fudge Sauce- check, I had homemade but opted for Magic Shell
Giant Bowl- check
Giant Appetite- check
Couch To Pass Out On After- check
So you see I was good to go. Let’s not talk about why I happen to have all these items laying around. Maybe we shouldn’t talk about that. Let’s not even think about it. In fact, let’s never speak of it again.
I know you are dying to know how I made it but first I want to make sure you all saw my birthday cake Chef Dennis made me so check below for that little beauty:
That was the cake portion of my birthday. Thanks Dennis.
Then we had this little thing going on and still is:
You got it folks, I am giving away one subscription to Bon Appetit magazine. So run over and check that out so you can enter. This was our present phase of the weekend.
So now we just had the ice cream phase left. To me if you’re going to splurge you should go big or go home. Of course going big might mean not being able to fit through the door after eating it but hey, who needs to go anywhere when the ice cream is in here anyway. So on to the recipe. You may get a bit fat eating it but you’ll be happy. You’re welcome!!!
I know right! It makes me dizzy just thinking about it! It was so good my head was spinning!
Somehow I powered through and kept at it. The fun part of these photo shoots is eating while you take pics. See below for what actually goes on during a “photo shoot” at the Lunatic asylum!
At this point I was so full I thought I’d explode and had a zillion pictures so I finally shared. Below is all that was left after the hooligan men got done with it.
Good lord it was so good I think they ate the bowl. Ah, parting is such sweet sorrow my Turtle Banana Split. Till next year my darling, till next year.
Toodles and smoochies. xx
