These are super sweet and easy to make. With this recipe, you're going to need plantains that are very ripe -- almost black in color. Ripe plantains will add sweetness, along with the brown sugar syrup.

What You'll Need:

2 ripe plantains (chopped in large chunks)
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of water
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 tablespoon of butter

How To Make It:

1) In a small pot add all of your ingredients.
2) Cover and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
3) Serve with cheese (optional).

Mmmnn. That looks really delicious.
OH MY GOD THESE LOOK AMAZING. I've never had them but now i NEED THEM grrrrr
I have, @alywoah! The first time I had it was when I was a little girl and ate at my Cuban friend Vanessa's house. I was a really little kid, so I thought platano looked kind of weird like a bad banana, but man, once I had it, I was like PLATANOS ARE THE BESTTTT.
@danidee have you ever had these?
They are sooo good!
