Recipe by shelbyrose

You can create an elegant dessert in minutes, and most likely you'll have the ingredients on hand. Crunchy, gooey and warm; chocolate, caramel and bananas; doesn't get much better than that!

This was so easy, so fast, and so good! Made it for DS and I on a whim as a surprise for him...it was done before he could even follow his nose out of his bedroom to see what I was making! Made two changes: skipped the peanuts because neither of us like them and had to use chocolate ice cream topping as I didn't have any baking squares on hand...but it was still delicious. Thanks for a simple dessert that looks elegant and tastes divine!
