Carnival Bananas Foster Tarts

    1 tube of 6 raw cinnamon rolls
    4 bananas
    4 oz. caramel sauce
    2 tbsp. melted butter
    Dash of nutmeg
    ⅛ tsp. rum flavoring
    ¼ cup salted Spanish peanuts, crushed (optional)
    vanilla ice cream

  1. Set function control to bake and preheat West Bend® Platinum Edition™ Countertop Oven to 350°F. Place each cinnamon roll on a lightly floured surface and sprinkle the top with flour. Use a rolling pin to make each cinnamon roll about ¼” in thickness and about 5” in diameter. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  2. Remove and reserve the cinnamon rounds. Raise the temperature of the oven to 400°F.
  3. Cut the bananas to ⅛" slices and arrange across the top of each cinnamon roll base.
  4. Combine the caramel sauce, butter, nutmeg, and rum flavoring - drizzle across the top of the rolls. Bake for an additional 4 minutes, until the banana is heated through and begins to caramelize. Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of the crushed peanuts.
