« on: December 28, 2011 06:36:11 PM »

I found this recipe online (but of course altered it a bit), and I was so excited to try it!  It is safe to say that it's the best flavor I've ever made!  I haven't actually ever had bananas foster, so I don't know how similar it really is, but I do know that it tastes amazing!

What I Used:

4 Tbsp Butter
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Rum
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Banana
3/4 Cup Heavy Cream
8oz Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

What To Do:

Melt half of the butter on medium heat, and ad the brown sugar.  Stir this mixture until the brown sugar melts, and add the cinnamon and rum (this mixture will bubble).  Roast banana slices in this mixture for about a minute on each side.  (Don't let them get mushy!)  Remove the banana slices and set them aside.  Pour the heavy cream directly into the mixture still in the pan.  Whisk the cream and sugar together until the cream just starts to boil.

Pour the hot cream over the chocolate in a heat safe bowl, add the rest of the butter.  Let the chocolate rest for a minute and then whisk the mixture until it's smooth and shiny!  Chop the banana into small pieces and fold into the mixture.  Let this cool down in the refrigerator until it is no longer warm.  I poured these into some simple looking chocolate molds instead of rolling them like traditional truffles.

This looks so good that I'm going to bookmark it. Is there something I can replace for the rum? I only have rum essence.(Or do I need to buy a bottle of Rum for this?) Thank you for sharing (Pic. looks great)

I was looking online, and rum extract or vanilla extract should work, just use less than what's listed in the recipe... I haven't tried those but they sound good!

Thank you. I've been waiting for DH to find some bananas in our fields so I can make this. Just too good to miss. Again, thank you for sharing!

Those look wonderful.  I'll have to try these soon.

I finally tried this and it came out great. Incredibly great in fact. Sadly, I only got pictures of the truffles in the molds. I made them for a gathering but they were gone in under two minutes of me putting them on the table. So I didn't even have time to put them down and turn on my camera.  I guess that qualifies as a very good recipe! Thank you again for sharing.

I just found the only picture that I got of these great truffles! Again, thanks!

I'm glad they worked out!  When I took them to family that year they were gone just as fast!

Oh you devil!
Sadly I'm the only one who eats bananas and I'd eat the whole tray, on second thought I wouldn't have to share so win/win!
Thanks for sharing the recipe!
