Baby Banoffee Pie & Paris When It Sizzles

⊰✿░B░A░B░Y░ ░B░A░N░O░F░F░E░E ░ P░I░E░⊰ 
Pie shell, made of peanut-butter/ Sesame biscuits. I spread my left-over Dulce de Leche for the filling.
Then banana slices, whipped cream, topped with the remaining bananas and sprinkled with dark chocolate-coated toasted almond.
(For the base)
30 g butter + 20 g peanut butter, melted
175 g digestive biscuits or cookies or crackers of your choice, crushed

(For the filling)
Dulce de Leche or Toffee Caramel or Nutella-Caramel

Dulce de Leche
Wikihow: 8 Ways to Make Dulce de Leche

Toffee caramel (baby portion)
50 g butter
50 g dark brown soft sugar
1/2 can sweet condensed milk

(For the topping)
2 bananas
150 ml whipping cream, lightly whipped
1 tablespoon chocolate-coated toasted almonds, roughly chopped

* using loose-bottom mini cake tin, greased

Easy How to:

1. Place the biscuits into a zip-lock plastic bag, using a rolling pin to make biscuit crumbs. Transfer the crumbs into a bowl. Stir in the butter. Spoon the crumbs into the base and about halfway up the sides of the tin to make a pie shell. Chill for 10 -15 minutes.

2. ***Toffee Caramel---> Melt the butter and sugar into a non-stick saucepan over a low heat, stirring all the time until the sugar has dissolved. Add the condensed milk and bring to a rapid boil for about a minute, stirring all the time for a thick golden caramel. Spread the caramel over the base, cool and then chill for about 1 hour, until firm or until ready to serve.
3. Slice the bananas and place them on top of the filling, then add in whipped cream....or alternatively, fold some banana slices into lightly whipped cream and spoon over the base. Refrigerate for another 10-15 minutes.

4. Carefully lift the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. (I hand-painted the plate w/ dark chocolate floral design). Decorate with the remaining bananas and sprinkle with dark chocolate coated toasted almonds.

Did you know...
that... tonight, we have full moon on Aquarius (Super Moon)?
A little poetry, inspired by this full moon + in remembrance of Audrey Hepburn & William Holden, starring in one of my favourite timeless movies of all time: 
Sabrina (1954) plus one on my to-watch list: Paris When It Sizzles (1963)
They are just adorable together!
"Fare-thee-well Full Moon"
