Banana Caramel Pie
1 (9-inch) baked
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, caramelized
3 medium or 2 large bananas
3 small Heath® candy bars, frozen
Use one of the three methods below to caramelize the sweetened condensed milk:
Pour sweetened condensed milk into 9-inch pie plate. Cover with aluminum foil;
place in larger shallow pan. Fill larger pan with hot water. Bake at 425 degrees
F for 1 hour or until thick and caramel-colored. Beat until smooth.
Pour sweetened condensed milk into top of double boiler; place over boiling
water. Simmer over low heat for 1 to 1/2 hours or until thick and
caramel-colored, stirring occasionally. Beat until smooth.
Pour sweetened condensed milk into a 2-quart glass measuring cup. Cook on 50%
power (medium) 4 minutes, stirring briskly every 2 minutes until smooth. Cook on
30% power (medium-low) 20 to 25 minutes or until very thick and caramel-colored,
stirring briskly every 4 minutes during the first 16 minutes and every 2 minutes
during the last 4 to 10 minutes.
The milk will have become very thick and brown and will taste like caramel. Let
the milk cool down.
Line bottom of pie shell with sliced bananas. Spoon sweetened condensed milk
over the bananas. You may spread another layer of bananas over the caramelized
Top with Cool Whip®.
Crush candy bars into very small pieces and sprinkle over the
top of the pie. Chill well before serving.
