Chocolate -Dipped Frozen Bananas
What you need:
-5 large bananas
-10 wooden sticks
-24 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
Assorted toppings: sprinkles, nuts, coconut, etc
How to make it:
Peel the bananas , cut them in half and skewer the cut end of each banana with a wooden stick.
Next, line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper, place the bananas on the baking sheet,freeze for an hour.
Melt the chocolate ,place your toppings in shallow bowls and have them nearby–the chocolate hardens quickly.When your chocolate and toppings are ready, remove the bananas from the freezer.
Hold one banana over the bowl of chocolate and with a large spoon put generous amount of chocolate over the banana, rotating it and spooning on more chocolate until it’s covered.
Do it quickly, since the chocolate will start to set soon after it touches the cold banana.
Next sprinkle the toppings over the banana, letting the extra drop back into the bowl. Place the banana back on the baking tray, and repeat until all of the bananas are coated with chocolate.
The frozen bananas are ready to be served but you can store them in an airtight container or zip-top plastic bag in the freezer if your friends haven’t arrive.
Let them sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving.
