Caramelized Banana Sundaes

"What a wonderful and quick finish to any meal. Warm caramelized bananas spooned over melting vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt, drizzled with hot chocolate sauce and sprinkled with toasted walnuts. Top it off with a maraschino cherry and you are all set. Note: If you don't have Kahlua you use the sub listed in the Kitchen Dictionary: 1/2 - 1 tsp chocolate extract + 1/2 - 1 tsp instant coffee dissolved in 2 tbsp water = 2 tbsp Kahlua."

    Can't go wrong! Used pecans instead of walnuts and no cherries, but topped with some whipped cream YUM. Made for ZWT 9

    YUM! I doubled the bananas, butter & brown sugar for the 4 of us. I don't think the step w/the lemon juice is necessary in this dish, but it didn't hurt the recipe any. I don't have any Kahlua but the sauce was still super delicious. We were all very happy! :) Thank you & good luck in the contest.

    Yummy! We thoroughly enjoyed this great dessert. I had to use milk chocolate chips as that is what I had but I can imagine how much better (not that it wasn't already over the top) it would have been with the semi-sweet chips. I did the rest as written and the roomies licked the bowls clean.Thanks for coming up with such a great recipe and good luck in the contest.

    Mmm!!! This was very nice, the thing I liked about it is that it wasn't too sweet just right for our taste DH doesn't like too sweet so this was ok for him. I followed the recipe exactly but for the cherry, I used a glace cherry as I had no maraschino cherries. The chocolate sauce was perfect. I will definitely make it again Thank's. Made for RSC#15
