These banoffee pie bites have all of the components of dessert. Candy caramel blended with actual slices of banana and a buttery crunchy graham cracker crust. Comprised of entire meals components, this dessert is amazingly scrumptious however not so sugary candy that it leaves you feeling blah after you eat it!
What’s Banoffee Pie?
Banoffee pie is a tremendous dessert manufactured from dulce de leche, bananas and whipped cream. It was initially created in Sussex, England and known as for a standard pie crust, home made dulce de leche and occasional-flavored whipped cream.
I’ve modified up the recipe a bit to make it extra child pleasant and loads much less sugar. This recipe makes use of a graham cracker crust, date caramel and barely sweetened whip cream.
The way to Make Date Caramel
Date caramel is absolutely easy to make. You’ll want to be sure your dates are contemporary – the softer the higher! You’ll simply mix your dates with a little bit of milk, vanilla, and a pinch of salt till clean and creamy. That’s it!
Date caramel is nice and scrumptious however the factor I like most about it, is that the dates are capable of present a wealthy candy caramel taste AND fiber and different nutritional vitamins and minerals.
Can I Make Forward and Freeze?
Sadly, you shouldn’t freeze your banoffee pie bites. Banana’s don’t freeze and thaw properly and people are one of many essential components of the dessert.
You may freeze the graham cracker crust and date caramel! You may assemble that a part of the dessert after which add the banana and whip cream if you end up able to serve them.
