    Place 1 or 2 cake slices in each parfait glass or banana split dish. Top each serving with 2 small scoops of ice cream. Spoon strawberries over one scoop. Drizzle hot fudge sauce over other scoop. Top each with whipped topping and cherry. Store cake covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Banana splits usually have three toppings: strawberry, chocolate and pineapple. If your family likes pineapple, spoon a little pineapple topping over the ice cream.
  • tip 2
    If you don’t have long banana split or parfait dishes, just cut the cake into squares and use round dessert bowls.
