Salted Caramel Banana Icebox Pie

I developed this dessert because of my love of banana flavor and my love of ice cream desserts. Salted caramel is the big flavor now and the saltiness and it serves to complement the sweet, creaminess of the banana filling. Kudos to Ashton on www.somethingswanky.com who gets credit for the salted carmel sauce inspiration.

Ingredients

FILLING

5 lb
bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
cool whip topping
banana extract, optional

CRUST

3 c
graham crackers, crushed
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 c
butter, salted, melted

SAUCE

1/2 c
heavy cream
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c
butter, salted
1/2 tsp
sea salt
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a blender combine the frozen bananas and a large container of Cool Whip. If the bananas are not very ripe, you may add 1/2 teaspoon banana extract to the banana combination. Set aside.
2
Combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar. Press into the bottom and sides of a glass 9x13 pan.
3
Pour banana mixture into the crust and freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
4
Combine all sauce ingredients in a sauce pan. On medium heat stir until butter is melted and brown sugar is dissolved. Bring to a rolling boil and allow to boil for an additional minute while stirring continuously. Then remove from heat and allow to cool to a non-skin scalding temperature. Can be reheated in the microwave on high for 1 minute or until sauce is pourable.
5
Cut dessert in squares and serve with warm sauce drizzled over each piece.
