    This is the best banana bread I've ever tasted!!! I used 2 teaspoons of vanilla instead of the rum. I also used 3 bananas which made 1 1/2 cups so I decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup. I only used 3/4 of the bag of brickle bits and it was very sweet. Made it a second time with the same ingredients but used an 8X11 cake pan. Perfect, since this tastes more like a gooey good cake than a loaf of bread. Great way to use overly ripe bananas.
    Very sweet but an outstanding recipe that is special. My family says this is their new favorite of all the banana breads that I have made.
    I made this recipe for a work luncheon and it was a HUGE hit. I actually used a bag and a half of the toffee and mixed the toffee bits with the toffee/milk choc bits.
    I tried this recipe but without rum, and it was delicious.
