Here’s our nod to the old drive-in days and a dessert I loved as a kid. All the components for this dessert can be made ahead, and in fact the crêpes must be assembled and frozen before serving. Once sliced, the crêpes resemble slices of banana, so when you make the crêpes, be sure to allow them to brown and spot slightly to give them the look of a banana peel.
