I actually got this from a friend, and then changed it a bit. Very easy, and it looks fancy.

Very good with the following changes. I used brown sugar and cinamon to saute the bananas saved a little shaved chocolate for garnish on whipped cream. Sprinkled some toasted slivered almonds on top. A definte hit. Read More

I made a modified version of this (ice cream instead of whipped cream chocolate syrup instead of the from-scratch mix here) but found the bananas in simple syrup to be very bland. I think it would be better with brown sugar instead of white and it needed some cinnamon too. Read More

This recipe is great however following the recipe made the banana's too mushed. I will try cooking the rum with the butter and sugar first until the alcohol cooks off then put the bananas in for about 2-3 minutes. I would agree about using 1/2 cup for whipped cream. I added 1/2 tbsp sugar to the whipped cream just for taste. THANKS THIS WAS GREAT!!!! Read More

Great recipe! I served this for my family recently and everyone raved. (And they're not a disingenuous bunch.) One quibble: 1/4 cup of whipping cream isn't adequate. I used 1/2 cup and it was just enough. Read More

This was SO GOOD!!!! I didn't have heavy cream so I used light cream for the chocolate mixure and used semi-sweet chocolate chips. I then topped it off with canned whipped cream. The recipe was a total hit with my husband I will be making it often! THANKS FOR SHARING IT! Read More
