Banoffee Crumble

I absolutely LOVE Banoffee and if I'm out for dinner its almost always what I'll order for dessert. I usually make a traditional round Banoffee Pie, but, I thought I'd try something new and make a Banoffee Crumble in a glass as a sort of a crumbly, sticky Yummmmyy dessert.....

Its a really simple recipe - the most work you'll have to do will be crushing the biscuits - well and making the caramel of course. So here goes....

(Makes roughly 4 glasses)

200g Digestive Biscuits
60g Butter

25g Butter
3 tbsp Brown Sugar
200g Carnation Condensed Milk (half a tin)

2 Large Bananas (sliced)
250ml Fresh Cream (Whipped)
2 Flake Bars (or regular chocolate grated)

1) Melt the butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water
2) While the butter is melting, crush the biscuits by putting them in a food bag and using a rolling pin
3) When the butter is melted, add the biscuit to it and mix
4) Remove the bowl from the heat and leave to sit while you make the caramel.

5) Melt the butter in a pan on a low heat
6) Add the brown sugar when its fully melted  (make sure to continuously stir the mixture)
7) Add the condensed milk, turn up the heat and bring the mixture to the boil
8) Leave the mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes
9) Turn off the heat but leave the mixture on the ring while you prepare your bananas and cream

10) Chop the bananas into thick circles
11) Whip the fresh cream
12) Crush the Flake Bars or grate the chocolate

13) Spoon some of the biscuit crumble into each of the glasses, followed by some banana, then by some caramel and after that the cream
14) Repeat this once or twice more and on the top layer sprinkle the crushed Flake or your grated chocolate

You could always try it in a jar rather than a glass like in this image from FingalFoodie
