Banana Rolo Ravioli

So, I’m learning as a mom that the easier, the better.

These fun Banana Rolo Ravioli take just five ingredients and are a fun treat for little hands to help put together! #recipe #caramel #chocolate

Take these little “ravioli,” for instance. They take five ingredients, 10 minutes in the oven, and won me super-mom status.

Also?  I’m not above bribery.  When I made these a few weeks ago, the local schools had been closed for inclement weather four days in a row.  While I’m lucky enough to get to work from home three days a week, it’s difficult to do with a 5-year old at home.  So these quick and easy desserts were a special little lunchtime treat for quiet behavior while mom was working.

I found the recipe in a little Pampered Chef booklet I’ve had for years, and Doodle and I threw these together in under five minutes flat. We stuffed Pillsbury reduced-fat crescent rolls with sliced bananas and Rolo mini’s candies, and sprinkled them with a bit of sugar.  After they came out of the oven, we drizzled these little chocolate-caramel-banana treats with caramel sauce and a scoop of ice cream.

Then we gobbled ’em up like nobody’s business.

Banana Rolo Ravioli
 
Ingredients
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced into 24¼-inch thick pieces
  • 24 Rolos minis, cut in half
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages of refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ⅓ cup caramel sauce
  • vanilla ice cream for serving, if desired
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.
  2. Unroll one can of your crescent dough onto your baking sheet, and firmly pinch the seams together. Gently shape it to form a rectangle, but do not stretch it out - it will not cover the entirety of your baking sheet.
  3. Arrange your banana slices over the dough in four rows of six - placing bananas about ¾ inch apart. Top each banana slice with 2 Rolo halves. Unroll your second can of crescent dough, and place it over the top of the filling. Press firmly around the filling to seal and pinch the seams together.
  4. Using a pizza cutter, cut sealed crescent dough into 24-squares. I used the tines of a fork to seal the edges together firmly. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until just golden brown.
  5. Remove from baking sheet and allow to cool a few minutes on a wire wrack. To serve, drizzle with caramel sauce and top with vanilla ice cream.

    Hi Ashley! Great post 🙂 We don’t have Rolo over here in Asia. What can be replaced with rolo? Thanks!

      Hi there! You may replace the Rolos with any chocolate covered caramel candies or even small pieces of both plain chocolate and a caramel. Or, just fill it with any chocolate you like and drizzle with extra caramel on top! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
