Ingredients

    Pie Shell

    • 8 ounces digestive biscuits or graham crackers
    • 7 tablespoons (3-1/2 ounces) butter

    Honeycomb

    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 tablespoon honey or golden syrup
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    Banana and Dulce De Leche Filling

    • 1 can dulce de leche (14 ounces)
    • 3 bananas
    • 1 cup whipping cream
    • 1 ounce dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa) 

    Directions

  • Pie Shell

    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • In a food processor, pulse the digestive biscuits to fine crumbs. Melt the butter and mix it into the cookie crumbs. Divide the mixture among three pie pans and press it into each pan to form the shell. Bake the pie shell on the middle rack of the oven for 12 minutes. Remove the pie shell from the oven and let it cool completely.

    Honeycomb

    • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • Pour the sugar into a saucepan and heat it on medium. When the sugar begins to melt around the edge, use a spoon to care-fully stir it to the center of the pan until all the sugar has melted and is golden brown.
    • Add the honey and let it melt into the sugar. Remove the pan from the heat and quickly stir in the baking soda. The mixture will immediately begin to bubble up, so you have to work quickly before it hardens. Pour the mixture onto the parchment paper and let it set completely; it will take 20 to 30 minutes.
    • Break the honeycomb into smaller pieces.Tip: Dip pieces of the honeycomb in melted dark chocolate and let the chocolate set. Amazingly good! If you have any leftover honeycomb, you can save it in an airtight jar. Use it as soon as pos­sible, before it becomes sticky. 

    Banana and Dulce de Leche Filling

    • Spread the dulce de leche in the pie shells. Slice the bananas and arrange them on top. Beat the whipping cream until fluffy and then spoon some onto each pie.
    • Chop the chocolate and sprinkle it over the pies together with the honeycomb bits.
