    Everybody loved it. Tastes exactly like Bananas Foster. I used honey grahams instead of the wafers, spiced rum instead of extract and a whole stick of butter for the crust. I did not use the banana garnish because I didnt think it was really needed. This tastes great the next day but the presentation is prettier the day its made because the caramel sauce starts to break down a little.

    I loved it but the rest of the family did not. Next time I will use less pineapple or maybe swap it out with strawberries or even both. I did however top it off with chocolate syrup.
