Here's how easy it is...
  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.

    I made a lighter version using a sweet pastry case (purchased) and Dream Topping instead of cream. Adjust the milk to make the topping as thick as you want. I used skimmed milk as well. Still tasted luvly but lighter.

    For base, I use ginger nuts mix with digestive biscuit, very amazing delish! Even my 2 & 4 years kid love them! Add few crunch peanut and chocolate chips on top of cream and banana. Everyone go crazy with that even my man 😄

    Can I ask. How long do you boil the carnation milk for before it turns to caramel ?? Do you boil it lighter or full blast the boiling. Thanks

    Carnation says:
    Hi Caspa1946, We do not recommend boiling the Carnation Condensed Milk cans as bursting may occur. Try Carnation Caramel instead. We've done the boiling for you!

    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!

    Can i use dark organic chocolate 70% cocoa? Or can i use plain chocolate instead?

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

    Carnation says:
    Hi Rachna, no just chill it in the fridge - not the freezer.
