Note: Photos above are just sample brands of the ingredients. This does not mean that the same brands are needed in preparing this dessert. You can always change things according to what you prefer.
- 1Using a hand mixer, beat the all-purpose cream until it forms a soft peak.Advertisement
- 2Gradually add the confectioner's sugar and vanilla.
- 1Peel the label off the condensed milk.
- 2Place it in the pot.
- 3Fill it with water, just enough to cover the top of the can.
- 4Boil for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Refill the water to replace what evaporates, if needed.
- 5Drain and leave to cool.
- 1Grate or slice the chocolate into small pieces and place on the top half of the broiler.
- 2Using a double broiler - fill the bottom half with water, but make sure that it doesn't reach the bottom of the top half.
- 3Bring it to simmer.
- 4Then put on the top half with the sliced chocolates.
- 5Stir it continuously until all the chocolate melts. Then simmer it until it reaches its boiling point.
- 1Get a rectangular shaped dish or container.
- 1Before whipping the all-purpose cream, chill it first for a good hour.
- 2If you don't have a double broiler, you can use an ordinary pot for the bottom and a stainless mixing bowl for the top.
- 3Aside from banana, you can always add or substitute any other fruits that you like. But of course, it wouldn't be called Banoffee Icebox anymore.
- 4If you don't have powdered sugar, you can always make some of your own.
