SLICE 2 bananas evenly over each crust; drizzle each with 1/3 cup of the caramel topping. Spread 4 cups filling evenly over caramel layer; sprinkle evenly with 2 cups of the OREO Pieces. Repeat layers of bananas, caramel and filling. (Filling will come to top of pan.)

GANACHE:
MICROWAVE chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min. or until almost melted; stir until completely melted. Cool slightly. Stir in whipping cream with wire whisk until well blended.

SPREAD 1 cup ganache evenly over each torte. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Before serving, garnish torte with dollops of additional whipped topping and mint sprigs, if desired.
