BBQ Bananas with Nuts

(serves 6)
6 under ripe bananas
Generous amount of whipped cream to serve
1 tbsp unskinned almonds
1 tbsp unskinned hazelnuts
¼ cup granulated sugar

In a small frying pan, place almonds, hazelnuts and sugar. Heat gently, constantly stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and cook until the mixture resembles a toffee-like syrup.

Pour this mixture onto a non-stick baking sheet and place the sheet on a metal baking sheet on a wooden board. Set aside to cool off. It will become brittle when cold. Crush finely.

Cut a slit lengthways into the skin of each unpeeled bananas. Open out the banana skin slightly and using 3 tsp of the nut mixture per banana, fill the slit of each banana.

Reshape the bananas and wrap each one in aluminium foil. Make sure the top is sealed.

Reheat the BBQ and put the wrapped bananas onto the grill for about 8 – 10 minutes, turning them over halfway.

This is a delicious dessert and will be enjoying by the whole family!
