Bananas are my absolute favorite fruit. I love them. When eating one by itself, I actually prefer them green which some people hate. Different strokes for different folks, right?
I took a trip to my parent’s recently and the moment I stepped in the house, I smelt something that I could literally taste and that made my mouth water. When I walked into the kitchen, these pretty little things were sitting on the table. She slightly changed a couple things on this recipe found on Pepperidge Farm. I’d be lying to you if I said I had just one. I couldn’t stop. These tasty delicacies just melt in your mouth! Place a scoop of ice cream on the tops of these warm swirls, and you my friends will be biting into heaven. Not. Even. Joking. Good luck stoping at just one… they are THAT spectacular!
This is an easy dessert, guaranteed to “WOW!” your guests! This dessert whips up in MINUTES!
