I started a tradition when my oldest son was 4 years old. Since our "sweethearts" are our children, we celebrate Valentines Day by having BANANA SPLITS for dinner! I make sure to have anything a person could desire for toppings.

I need a dish to serve banana splits in for my Red Hat party. Does anyone know if the paper/light-weight cardboard "boats" (like the ones hot dogs or fries are served in) are waterproof enough to serve an ice cream dessert? If not, any other ideas of a dish to use? I need about 25 for our group, but the plastic banana split boats at the restaurant supply come in stacks of 250 - way too many for our use.

My ice cream shop is family owned and for banana splits they just use Styrofoam hot dog holders and they work great! If you can find those, they are awesome!

Is there an ice cream shop in your area that would sell you just the bowls in the quantity that you need? Maybe a Dairy Queen or Frosty Freeze? The other suggestion would be to buy all different types of bowls at a thrift shop for practically nothing, and send the bowls home as a favor (after they get washed of course!)

No, they are to thin. It will soak through! They do sell plastic hotdog containers at the dollar stores and Walmart for either 2 for a dollar or 4 for a dollar. I also like the previous post of getting random bowls at a thrift store!

Why don't you do some research and find out for yourself? You'll get to eat both ice cream and hotdogs.
