Banoffee Pie

Banoffee has all the delicious elements you want in a dessert. Crispy buttery base, silky banana caramel, a yummy chocolate layer with fresh banana and cream to top it off. This version is slightly different to your typical banoffee pie as I have added a chocolate layer and used Krispie coconut biscuits in the base. The perfect dessert for family dinner or in this case in place of a birthday cake.
