Banana Split Brownie Pie
4 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/3 cups vanilla ice cream
1-2/3 cups chocolate ice cream
1-2/3 cups strawberry ice cream
2 medium firm bananas, sliced
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 to 3/4 cup hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed
1/2 to 3/4 cup strawberry ice cream topping
1/4 to 1/2 cup toffee bits or almond brickle chips

In a microwave, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Cool. In a small mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla and cooled chocolate mixture. Add flour; mix well. Spread into a greased 9-in. springform pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and freeze until firm.
Using 1/3 cup for each scoop, place four scoops of vanilla ice cream, five scoops of chocolate ice cream and five scoops of strawberry ice cream on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm. Place vanilla scoops in center of brownie crust; alternate scoops of chocolate and strawberry around edge. Cover and freeze until firm.
Just before serving, remove sides of pan. Arrange bananas and strawberries over ice cream. Drizzle with hot fudge and strawberry toppings. Sprinkle with toffee bits. Garnish with whipped cream and almonds. Cut into wedges. Makes 10 servings.
