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!

  • 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
  1. Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add sugar and cook until melted, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low. Gradually stir in sour cream and 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. Add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of premium vanilla ice-cream. 
  4. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
  5. 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
