Banana choco Sundae

Over the weekend, I got together with some of my neighbours for an Ice Cream Social. We had been talking about doing this for quite some time but had never followed through.We each brought different ice cream toppings, candy and accouterments. We had hot fudge, caramel, butterscotch, whipped cream, sprinkles, Oreos, brownie bites and cookies.We piled our bowls high with a bit of everything and topped off our sundaes with different waffles.These were works of art, unparalleled masterpieces even.Each bite was a unique experience that was never exactly replicated.As an homage to our ice cream social, I'm posting this fun and yummy recipe of  banana chocolate ice cream
