It’s well known that kiwi’s love their lolly logs (or lolly cake). It was always a must when visiting a bakery, I know I could never get enough of them. So this recipe is a slight variation on the kiwi classic with a fusion of banoffee flavours to create a new taste sensations.
For this recipe I used Highlander’s Caramel Filling which can be found in any supermarket here in New Zealand, next to the cans on sweetened condensed milk. For the biscuits I chose Griffins Vanilla Wine, alternately any vanilla flavoured biscuit will be fine. For the banana lollies, we all know the ones we need. They were always my favourite ones in any mixed pack of mixed lollies.
HAVE YOU TRIED YET? OTHERS HAVE:
- 120g Butter
- 220g Highlander's Caramel (About half a 380g tin)
- 1 Pack of Griffins Vanilla Wine Biscuits (250g)
- 200g Soft Banana Lollies
- Chocolate hail (optional)
- In a small pot, melt and heat together the butter and caramel. Whisk until smooth.
- Crush biscuits with either a rolling pin or food processor and add to a large bowl.
- Cut banana lollies in half and add to the large bowl.
- Pour melted butter and caramel mixture in to the large bowl and mix well.
- Roll dough into a log shape, coat with chocolate hail and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
- Slice log into desired segments and serve! Now it wouldn't be banoffee without a cream element, so you could serve some whipped cream alongside for dipping. Naughty I know!
This Banoffee Lolly Log has been such a popular recipe here on Baker Gatherer, so I decided it deserved to have some new photos taken. Below is the first and only photo taken of this recipe when it was shared for the first time in November 2015. I wanted this main image to be visually the same and pay homage to the original when being re-shot. So let’s remember where this recipe came from and celebrate as it moves forward, reimagined!
