Favorite Ingredient Friday

Warm Caramel Bananas from Kraft Foods

1. 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
2. 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3. 1/3 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
4. 2 medium bananas, peeled
5. 1/2 cup PLANTERS Dry Roasted Peanuts
6. 1 square BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
7. 1/2 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided

MELT butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add sugar; cook until melted, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low. Gradually add sour cream; cook 1 min.

CUT bananas in half lengthwise and crosswise creating 4 half slices each. Add banana slices, cut sides down, and peanuts to skillet. Cook 1 min. or until bananas are evenly coated and tender, basting occasionally with sauce.

SPOON bananas evenly into 4 dessert dishes; top with remaining sauce in skillet. Drizzle chocolate on top of bananas. Top each evenly with whipped topping.

I made these last week and we all enjoyed them! I used walnuts instead of the dry roasted peanuts, and Joe said next time he wants to try it with vanilla ice cream - sounds good to me!

Oh gosh I think I might've just drooled a little bit, haha. Those sound absolutely fantastic and very similar to a recipe I was going to post today. Great minds think alike! I can't imagine how tasty these are..I'll be making them at some point this weekend. Thanks so much for sharing!
