Ingredients

1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted

2 tablespoons brown sugar

4 bananas, peeled and halved

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup 35-percent whipping cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

4 store-bought or prepared brownies

1 ounce dark chocolate, grated

1 tablespoon icing sugar (confectioners' sugar)

Directions

  1. Heat a nonstick saute pan over medium to low heat. Add the butter and brown sugar to melt. Place the banana halves in the pan and saute until the bananas caramelize, approximately 1 minute. Turn the bananas over and caramelize on other side. Remove the pan from the heat. Put the sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla extract in a metal bowl and whisk until firm peaks form. To serve, grate the dark chocolate on a plate. Sift the icing sugar over the prepared brownies and plate. Place the caramelized bananas on the plate and dollop the whipping cream mixture on the brownie.
