Banana Split Donut, Our Fantastic Retro Redo

Banana splits are a classic. Kids love them and adults remember them fondly. The original is basically 3 types of ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry), a banana split in half and placed along side of the ice cream, some chocolate, caramel and strawberry syrup finished with whipped cream on top.  Sounds good?

How about adding a donut and a modern twist to an old favorite.
