1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
6 Tablespoons Butter
2 Bananas, sliced (slightly green work best)
2 Shots Rum
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Combine the brown sugar and 4 tablespoons of butter in a skillet. Melt and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When it starts to thicken drop a little of the caramel into a glass of cold water. It should form a soft ball of caramel in the water. Remove from the heat and add 2 tablespoons if butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 2 shots of rum. Return to the heat and stir to combine the ingredients. Add the sliced bananas and cook over medium heat, stirring gently, for a few minutes, until the bananas are soft, but not falling apart.
Remove from heat and let cool until warm. Server warm over vanilla ice cream.
