While searching aimlessly on Pinterest one evening I found a few pictures of chocolate covered bananas (like this one from Little B Cooks) and knew that my entire family would devour them. My dear sweet husband recently found something similar in the freezer section of the grocery store but I hate buying things that are processed and pre-made. I decided to tweak the recipe just slightly and add our own flare to it. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
- 1 cup of fairtrade organic chocolate morsels
- ½ cup of Nutella (or peanut butter would work well too)
- 1 cup of toffee chips
- 2 fresh bananas
- Peel and slice bananas into 1-2″ wide pieces.
- In a small glass bowl melt chocolate morsels and Nutella (microwave or stove top).
- Stir mixture until smooth and well blended.
- Place banana slices on a lined cookie sheet and spoon on a tablespoon (aprox) of chocolate mixture over the bananas.
- Top with toffee chips.
- Freeze for one hour.
- Wait until the kids go to bed and then enjoy your snacks and whatever you do – don’t share!
OK, I did end up sharing these with the family and I think they approved because there wasn’t anything left after our little after dinner snack. You could really top them with anything. I think next time I’ll mix chocolate with peanut butter and sprinkle with chopped peanuts. What would you top them with?
