    For the Crust:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • For the Filling:
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 large bananas, sliced
  • 1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • For the Topping:
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup hot fudge sauce, slightly warmed
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon rainbow sprinkles
  • 1/4 cup drained maraschino cherries

Directions

To make crust, in large bowl, combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, sugar and salt. Pour out into buttered 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Press mixture firmly into bottom of dish using hands. Place in freezer about 10 minutes.

To make filling, beat cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Pour onto chilled crust and use a rubber spatula to smooth out evenly. Top with sliced bananas in an even layer. Spread with crushed pineapple, followed by sliced strawberries.

To make topping, beat heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract in medium bowl until soft peaks form, about 5 to 8 minutes. Spoon whipped cream on top of pineapple and strawberry layer; gently spread to form an even layer. Drizzle with hot fudge sauce and top with nuts, sprinkles and cherries. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until set, about 4 hours or overnight. Slice and serve.

Use softened butter for cookies and cakes.

Bringing butter to room temperature helps it incorporate better with other ingredients.
