Banana Caramel Cookie Crunch
This one I learned from a good friend who is now happy in heaven. She came up with this in a retreat some decade and a half ago I guess, where she was OIC for the food committee. Just because she was left with very few resources, she came up with this fun and easy to make dessert. Funny this can be a Banoffee pie's neighbor!
And so I learned that you have to make do with what you have in the kitchen and you'll see that you can make something spectacular out of them.
On the photo you see:
Crushed chocolate chip cookies / Any butter cookie you like
1 Ripe Banana (lakatan)
Chocolate Syrup (Hershey's or Clara Ole, or melted chocolate!)
*When my friend shared this with me, she said she used Chips Ahoy, ripe lacatan bananas and melted Hershey's chocolate!
No official measurements! Just assemble it in any order you desire!
I like to assemble it this way:
In a plate or cup, put the crushed cookies, then sliced bananas, pour the caramel and lastly the chocolate syrup!
You may also opt to add a little vanilla ice cream or whipped all purpose cream, and instead put them in a small clear glass to make it appear like a trifle, plus a cherry on top! :)
This one's for you Sab! I know you are smiling down on us!
Alright everyone, dig in!!! :)
*this is an addition to my Banana festival moment. Simple, pero ROCK! bow!
