I didn’t use up all of my sweetened condensed milk from my cheesecake so I built a recipe around the leftovers. I’ll put the ingredients in the recipe so that you don’t have to hunt around. Honestly, I was surprised that this recipe was such a hit. I just kind of threw things together and it worked out great.
I love banana so including it in the Â recipe was an easy choice. I’ve also been rocking the coconut lately, it must be the weather. I knew I wanted chocolate so everything was married together in a 8×8 pan and they lived happily ever after.
