Frozen Chocolate Bananas!!
Its finally summer over here!! It only took about 8 months, but its here!! I love, love, love ice cream and iced treats!! And, well, truth be told, they aren't always so good for me. So, why not make out own iced treats?! Like frozen chocolate bananas!
You will need:
Bananas- however many depending on how many you'd like to make
Chocolate- again, as much as depending on how much you are making. Either dark or milk chocolate will do.
Nuts- like peanuts, hazelnuts or pistachios- crushed into wee pieces.
And sticks... toothpicks, or larger.
Now, you can use the whole banana for one if you like... or you can cut the banana into 4 or 5 smaller pieces. Put a stick in the banana pieces. Place bananas in the freezer to get ahead start
Melt chocolate... your best bet would be with a double broiler, or some concoction of your own. If your feeling adventurous, add some vanilla, brandy or almond flavour to the chocolate.
Once melted coat the bananas in chocolate, entirely, then dip in nuts. Becuase the bananas are already cold, the chocolate will cool much quicker, so you have to move fast. Place banana pieces on a tray lined with wax paper. Pop back into the freezer, to set.
This picture isn't of my own frozen bananas but this is what they should look like when you make yours!!
