3Each layer is built inside of the sandwich rectangles and consists of a cookie crumble + ice cream + banana layer.

4First layer: Combine crumbled chocolate cookie with chocolate sauce. Line the inside of the sandwich circle with the crumb mixture. Add in chocolate ice cream, and then line with sliced bananas. Put in the freezer for 20 minutes.

5Second layer: Combine crumbled vanilla cookie with pineapple sauce. Add in vanilla ice cream, and then line with banana slices. Put in freezer for 20 minutes.

6Third layer: Combine crumbled vanilla cookie with strawberry sauce. (see below for instructions on homemade strawberry sauce). Add in strawberry ice cream, and then line with sliced bananas. Put in the freezer for 20 minutes.

8To finish, pour the chocolate ganache over the top of the whipping cream layer. Decorate with jimmies and add banana slices, whipped cream, and cherries to top! Slice immediately.

Strawberry sauce (should yield about 1 cup)

1Place strawberries and sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook uncovered over medium high-heat, breaking down strawberries with a wooden spoon. Cook 5-10 minutes until softened and broken down. Cool completely before using.
