Warm Caramel Bananas

This has been one of our favorite company desserts over the past few years...a recipe I pulled from a Kraft Canada advertisement some time ago. If you like bananas...and warm caramel sauce...this one is for you!


Ingredients:
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 medium bananas
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1 square semi-sweet melted chocolate, melted (optional)
  • whipped cream or premium ice-cream
Directions:
  1. Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add sugar, cook until melted stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low. Gradually stir in sour cream...cook 1 minute stirring occasionally.
  2. Cut bananas in half lengthwise; cut each piece crosswise in half. Place banana slices, cut sides down, in skillet. Cook 1 minute or until bananas are softened, basting occasionally with the sauce in bottom of skillet.
  3. Spoon bananas evenly into four dessert dishes. Top with sauce. Sprinkle with peanuts. Top with a dollop of whipped cream...or a scoop of premium vanilla ice-cream. Drizzle with chocolate...if desired.

Note: To melt chocolate, microwave 1 unwrapped square chocolate in microwaveable bowl on MEDIUM for 2 minutes...stirring after 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.

  6. I want that right now! I wish my hubby liked bananas...oh well I will have to eat it alone....or invite company...I'll try to use my soy nut butter and see if it tastes good. In some recipes it works really well. Kathy
