A Chopped Dessert

We had a friendly little cooking competition at work based on the Chopped television show.  For the dessert round, the secret ingredients were bananas, Sprite, and peanuts.  We don’t have the same pressure with only twenty minutes on the clock, but there’s pressure all the same.

Tia took well to the challenge.  She found a delicious recipe where the Sprite wild card was easily incorporated into the icing.  (You don’t have to do that part.)  The recipe also calls for a store bought crust.  Sacrilegious in our baking world.

I introduce you to the dessert calzone.  Pictured is a mini version where the recipe makes a large one.  Your choice on how you want the final product to look.  Either way it was delicious.
