Much smaller serving for modern use

  • ½ cup walnuts

  • ½ cup pecans 

  • 2oz Simple Syrup

  • 2oz Fruit Syrup of choice (testing w/ Blueberry, but also works really well w/ Chocolate, Butterscotch, or Caramel, etc.)


Peel one banana, slice in two lengthwise and lay the slices parallel on a plate; place a ball of vanilla ice cream on one end of the slices; place over the banana crushed fresh strawberries and over all pour a thick marshmallow cream, then put a Maraschino cherry on a toothpick on the ice cream. The ball of ice cream represents the head of the comet, while the two slices of banana represent the tail. This dish should bring 15 cents. (C. Ray Wait.)
