  1. 1. Tip the biscuit crumbs into a bowl. Add the butter and mix in. Spoon the crumbs into the base and about halfway up the sides of the tin to make a pie shell. Chill for 10 minutes.
  2. 2. Melt the chocolate gently in the microwave then mix in the Carnation Caramel. Beat until smooth. Spread the filling over the biscuit base and chill for about 1 hour, until firm or until ready to serve.
  3. 3. Slice the banana and fold half of them into the whipped cream and spoon over the base. Decorate with the remaining bananas and dust liberally with cocoa powder.

    Hi. I couldn't find any carnation caramel in the shops. Can I make caramel as for the classic banoffee pie and add the chocolate? Or am I better to boil a tin of condensed milk as directed in other recipes? Thanks!!

    Carnation says:
    Hi Natalie, this simplest solution is to boil the tin as this will give you a great caramel!

    Carnation says:
    Hi Heather, you can use plain or 70% cocoa - both are good, depends on how chocolatey you like it!
