This recipe should be with something to off set it, Kinda reminds me of fried bananas in Mexico, but with a nice sweet twist.

Hubby laughed when I told him I was going to try this! Know what...he's not laughing now, but he is SMILING. Yummmmmmmmmmmy

It tasted like the bananas foster we had when we were on vacation. I added a little alcohol to the adult servings and left the recipe as it is for the kids. I scraped a vanilla bean instead of using extract. It was a hit, they will be asking for it again here.

Very easy to make. A wholesome snack anytime. Even the kids will LOVE this treat! Make some today!

THIS RECIPE IS SO EASY MY KIDS DID MOST OF IT. BUT IT WAS REALLY GOOD WE EAT SO MANY BANANAS THAT WE HAD TO TRY THIS ONE. AND I WILL SAY THAT WE WILL BE MAKING THIS ONE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME WE HAD ICE CREAM WITH IT TO TOO GOOD. GREAT JOB

This was a quick, easy, and delicious dessert! I will definitely make it again.

What an easy, quick dessert, yet it provides a nice end to a fancy meal!
