Merry Christmas Squares

merrychristmasvintageWe are creeping ever-so-closer to the humdinger of all holidays – Christmas.  Soon all the heavy, sugar and fat filled food will hopefully be behind us.  But in the meantime, keep the sugar flowing with these treats.

Merry Christmas Squares

Crust:

½ cups butter or margarine
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
¼ cup sugar

Filling:

3 bananas, sliced ¼ inch
½ gallon Sani-Dairy vanilla ice cream
1 cup chopped walnuts

Sauce:

2 cups powdered sugar
½ cup butter or margarine
12 oz. can evaporated milk
6 oz. pkg. semi-sweet real chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla

Topping:

1 cup whipping cream
Mraschino cherries

in 2 qt. saucepan, melt ½ cup butter. Stir in crumbs and sugar. Press crumb mixture on bottom of 13” x 9” pan. Layer banana slices over crumb mixture. Spread Sani-Dairy ice cream over bananas. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Cover; freeze until firm (about 4 hours). Meanwhile, in 2 qt. saucepan, combine all sauce ingredients. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and comes to a full boil (20 to 25 min.). Boil 1 min. Cool completely; pour evenly over ice cream. Cover; freeze until firm (about 3 hr.). In chilled bowl, beat chilled whipping cream at high speed, scraping bowl often, until soft peaks form. Spread over sauce. If desired, garnish with maraschino cherries. Serve immediately or freeze until served.
