    2 bananas, cut into 1/4-inch chunks
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

    Gently mix bananas, brown sugar, graham cracker crumbs, pecans and chocolate.

    Transfer to a platter lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with Chocolate Rum Sauce (recipe follows).
