Recipe by *Z*
This is from a recipe card out of the grocery store. I haven't made it yet but it looks so yummy. I wanted to put it here for safe keeping. Time does not include chilling time. It says to grill the bananas but you could probably do them inside on a grill pan or a George Foreman grill or something like that. The directions as written are a little conplicated, I think. When I make it, I will see if I can explain it a little bit better.

- 1⁄4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
