Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Creamy Pineapple Dessert Panini
Prepare recipe as directed, omitting chocolate and substituting 1/2 cup well-drained canned crushed pineapple for the bananas.
If You Don't Have a Panini Grill
Heat large skillet on medium heat. Add sandwiches, in batches if necessary; cook 2 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides, gently pressing down tops of sandwiches with spatula to flatten slightly as they cook.
You will need to use about half of an 8-inch round bread loaf to get the amount of bread needed to prepare these delicious dessert sandwiches.
