This a definitely a recipe that will impress people. Not only is it so pretty but it is sooooo delicious too! It's from Paula Deen of course! Just make sure this leaves the house after you make it because if it doesn't you may end up eating the whole thing. Too tempting to have around for any length of time. This really will remind of you of a banana split since the cream cheese has pineapple in it. So easy and so impressive.
We've have rain here in northern Virginia all weekend yet oddly enough when I went down to Richmond for the day yesterday, the sun was shining and the weather was just gorgeous. Then I came back up to Woodbridge last night and it was still raining here. Crazy! But hey, this definitely beats snow!
1 (20 ounce) box fudge brownie mix (recommended: Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix)
1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
2 tablespoons sugar
2 bananas, sliced and tossed in lemon juice to prevent browning
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup chopped nuts
Chocolate ice cream topping or chocolate syrup, for drizzling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a 15 inch pizza pan. Prepare the brownie mix according to box directions. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until done. Remove from the oven and cool. Beat the cream cheese, pineapple and sugar together in a bowl. Use any reserved pineapple juice at this time, if needed, to soften the mixture to a good spreading consistency. Otherwise dispose of or save the juice for another use. Spread the mixture over the cooled brownie crust. Arrange the banana and strawberry slices over the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and drizzle with chocolate ice cream topping. Refrigerate. To serve, slice as you would a pizza and enjoy!
