Because good things come in small packages

Inspired by a few days in France, where the most delicious and fattening foods are served in teensy portions, I decided to make some individual, portion-controlled Banoffee Pies (in shot glasses).

Banoffee Pies

(Makes 10)

2oz butter, melted
4oz Hobnobs
(or Digestives, Ginger Nuts, etc)
A large banana
Just over half a tin of Carnation Caramel
About 250ml double cream, whipped
A couple of squares of dark chocolate, grated (or a crushed Flake)

I put the biscuits in a freezer bag and bashed them hard with a rolling pin until pleasingly and uniformly crushed, added to them to the melted butter and stirred well. I divided this between all 10 glasses, gently patting it down into the bases. I then added a few slices of banana and a generously heaped teaspoon of Caramel, before topping each one with some softly whipped cream and a sprinkling of chocolate.

Et voilĂ ! Put them in the fridge and see how long you can resist their siren call.
