Directions:
Combine butter, sugar and graham cracker crumbs and press into a 9x13 cake pan. Reserve about 1/2 c. of the mixture for garnish. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Cool.
Slice bananas (frozen bananas are hard to cut so the thinner the slices, the better). Make a layer of bananas on top of cracker crust. Sprinkle lightly with nuts. Next, slice entire 1/2 gallon of ice cream and layer on top of nuts. Slice another layer of bananas over ice cream, then sprinkle remaining nuts on top. Freeze until firm. Remove from freezer and spread jar of fudge sauce over the top. Spread Cool Whip on chocolate layer and sprinkle with remaining graham cracker crumbs. Freeze.
