I needed another dessert to take to our swim club barbecue this past weekend. I saw my Pillsbury bake off recipe book sitting on the shelf. And out of the corner of my eye, I saw some brown bananas sitting in the fruit bowl. “Eat me, eat me”, they were yelling. No way! I don’t like eating brown bananas. I go for the type without a bump or bruise and even prefer them to be a little on the green side. Hmmm. Time to make banana bread? Nah, that’s not picnic fare. So with a quick look through some Pillsbury recipes, it was an easy decision.
1/2 cup CRISCO® Pure Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup water
3 Eggland’s Best eggs
1 1/2 cups toffee bits
1 cup Fisher® Macadamia Nuts, chopped
2 firm ripe medium bananas, cut into 1/4-inch pieces (2 cups)
1/3 cup SMUCKER’S® Caramel Ice Cream Topping
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Generously spray 13×9-inch pan with CRISCO® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray.
2. In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, oil, water and eggs 50 strokes with spoon. Add 1 cup of the toffee bits, the nuts and bananas; stir just until well blended. Pour into pan. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup toffee bits over top.
3. Bake 38 to 48 minutes or until center is set when lightly touched, top is slightly dry and edges just start to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely, about 2 hours. For brownies, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. To serve, drizzle each brownie with caramel topping. Cover and refrigerate any remaining brownies.
