Here's what NOT to do: DON'T use ripe bananas (you want them as firm as possible). DON'T cook them too long or stir too much --- just warm them (they get soft). DON'T wait any time whatsoever to serve this (it gets mushy and breaks down). The recipe says to "serve immediately" and that is correct! Good luck!



This is wonderful! Just know that your bananas will not stay firm and nicely shaped. They get a bit mushy and soften a lot as they cook. But,you will be so pleased with this recipe. It got rave reviews at my Build Your Own Ice Cream Sundae Party! It was the favorite over my homemade hot fudge sauce and the homemade butterscoch sauce. I also made it again for topping our favorite Belgian Waffles... Divine! Thanks!



super easy to make. and wonderful, I will make again.
