How could such a creation exist?? Only by the hands of CIA graduate Hedy Goldsmith of Michael's Genuine Food and Drink of Miami fame. She serves it there with a mini chocolate caramel ice cream sundae. OMG. If you don't have a panini press, use a heavy non-stick or cast-iron skillet and weight the sandwich with another heavy skillet, maybe even with a can of soup or something for added pressure. Flip the sandwich and repeat to brown the other side.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a panini press. Prepare the bread: Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside. Butter one side of each slice of bread and dust lightly with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  2. To assemble the sandwiches, turn the bread sugared side down and set four slices aside. Spread the dulce de leche over the remaining four slices, then cover each with four slices of banana. Sprinkle each slice with toffee pieces and fleur de sel. Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of the sweetened condensed milk over each slice, then top with the reserved brioche to make four panini.
  3. Place a sandwich in the panini press and cook until crisp and caramelized. Cut the sandwich into quarters, top with powdered sugar and repeat with the remaining panini. Serve with chocolate sauce on the side.
