Caramel Banana's

One of my daughters isn't a fan of banana's...BUT being the mom that I am, I made her eat them anyway (mean mom's make great kids, right?!). After trying many different ways to get her to eat them, I tried pouring caramel over the top (okay, not the most nutritious thing...but hey, it worked!). She actually started requesting that we have them for breakfast...who would have thought!? These Caramel Banana's also taste AMAZING over ice cream (just in case you have an "ice cream hater" that needs some encouragement)!

Caramel Banana's
6 T. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 T water
1/3 c. + 1 T evaporated milk
1 T vanilla

Heat butter, brown sugar and water. Let boil for 5 minutes, stir constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat, add evaporated milk and vanilla. Stir. Cool. Slice banana's (any way you want) and place on a serving platter. Pour cooled caramel over the top, serve. YOU could serve it more formal and slice the banana's in bigger chunks and place the cooled caramel in a small serving dish, where it can be spooned onto a dinner plate or snack plate and used for "dipping" the banana's.......any way you eat it, I think you'll love it.
