Banoffee Pots

First thing first: How to make dulce de leche?

It is nothing but cooked condensed milk. I went for the conventional method as suggested in the recipe. 

Put the can of condensed milk, unopened, in a large pan, cover with water, bring to boiling point and boil for 2 hours on medium heat. Top it with boiling water from a kettle as needed. The can SHOULD remain covered in water, otherwise there is a risk of the can bursting open. Remove and leave to cool completely. If you cook it for longer, it will have a darker color than that shown in the picture below.

 
This is how I made the Banoffee Pots/Trifles:

Ingredients:
3-4 rich tea biscuits powdered
1 tbsp butter
80 ml dulce de leche
1 banana, peeled and sliced
80 ml whipped cream sweetened to taste
Cocoa powder for dusting.

Process:
1. Mix the butter and the powdered biscuit and divide it into the two serving glass. Press it to form a layer. 
2. Pour dulce de leche into each glass equally forming a layer followed by banana slices and them top it up with whipped cream. Dust it with cocoa powder. Keep it in the fridge for an hour before serving.
