    I do this differently and easier in my opinion. For the toffee (or dulce del leche) I use two tins of evaporated or condensed sweetened milk. I place them in a pan of water reaching to the brim and boil them on a gentle flame for 150mins minimum. Let them cool, opern and use. For the topping I beat 1 tub of mascarpone cheese (250g) with 1 benna fresh cream tub, 3 tablespoons icing sugar and a few drops of vanilla essence or Orange water.
    First I assemble the biscuit base as above, then spread the dulce del leche onto which I cover with the banana shavings. Finally I pipe or spread the cream on top and put in the fridge.

      I do the Banoffee pie too and it is always a success. I also boil the evaporated condensed milk for one hour although lately I found that the same brand of evaporated milk I use are selling ready made caramel. The base I do it with crushed digestives, some melted butter and some whisky/brandy all blended together. Then I spread the caramel on top of the base, I cover the caramel with banana [which I would have sprayed with lemon zest before so that it lasts longer] and then I just top with whipping cream over which I then sprinkle some chocolate. I always get loads of compliments for it and it is very easy to prepare!
