  • 8 small frozen sweet shortcrust tart cases
  • 1/2 x 380g can Top ‘n’ Fill caramel
  • 1 large banana, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped roasted salted peanuts


  1. Making praline: line baking tray with baking paper. In a saucepan over low heat, combine sugar and 1 1/12 tablespoons of cold water. Cook and stir until sugar has dissolved for 5 minutes (make sure it doesn’t boil). Increase heat to medium and bring to boil. Cook without stirring until a deep golden colour for about 8-10 mins. Take off heat and stir in peanuts. In a thin stream, pour the mixture on the prepared tray. Cool at room temperature until set. Break into small pieces.
  2. Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. In foil, place tart cases on a baking tray and bake until golden for about 10 mins. Transfer to wire rack and remove from foil cases to cool.
  3. Spoon 3 level teaspoons of caramel into the individual tarts. Top with banana slices. Sprinkle praline over the top and serve.
