Recipe: Banoffee Bites

BANOFFEE BITES

Banoffee pie is a firm favourite around the world, but the flavour combination works in loads of different ways. We've stuck banana and toffee into filo parcels that you could almost mistake for wontons! They're a cool little snack or a great dessert if people just want to pick at the end of a meal.
