Banoffee Parfait

I’ve had THE BEST past few days hanging out with my good friend from high school. She came to visit me from Los Angeles, and I was able to take off a few days of work to catch up, go shopping, watch movies, and eat allllllllll the food we could fit into a three-day period. It. Was. Awesome. A mini stay-cation, and some much-needed girl-time!

Raise your hand if you love banana desserts!!! This one is a good one folks. If you’ve ever heard of Banoffee Pie (banana & toffee), then you probably know that it is hands down one of the tastiest pies out there. Ok, well that’s my opinion at least… When I think about heaven, I imagine you can eat boat loads of this and not gain a single ounce of fat.
This is essentially a banoffee pie recipe reworked for serving in decorative glasses. I love using these stemless wine glasses best, it really shows off the beautiful layers. This dessert can be prepared and served in just a few short hours, but should be eaten sooner than later as the bananas will start to oxidize.
Combine melted sugar in with graham crumbs and mix until you get a wet sandy texture. Spoon graham crumbs into each glass and pat down lightly with the back of the spoon.

Banofee Parfait

Yield 4-5 servings

Crust

Butter, melted 5 oz.

Graham Crumb 8 oz.

Toffee Layer

Butter 3.5 oz.

Brown sugar 3.5 oz.

Sweetened Condensed Milk 1 can

Top layer

Bananas 2-4, sliced

Whipping cream 8 oz.

Sugar 2 oz.

White chocolate, chopped 4 T

Directions:

Combine melted sugar in with graham crumbs and mix until you get a wet sandy texture. Spoon graham crumbs into each glass and pat down lightly with the back of the spoon.  

To make the toffee layer, heat butter and brown sugar in a large skillet (non-stick if you’ve got it). Once melted together, add sweetened condensed milk and stir frequently on a low-medium heat with a spatula until thick and darker in color. This will take you approx. 5-7 minutes.

Next, quickly pour toffee into a pouring vessel, and divide between each glass. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Slice bananas, then add to each glass.

In a mixing bowl fitted with a whisk attachment, whip cream to stiff peak and either spoon onto bananas or pipe onto bananas. I used a piping bag to make a cleaner appearance.

Garnish with chopped white chocolate, or pecans, or dark chocolate, or what ever you like!

Eat within two days or bananas will start to appear brown. Enjoy!
