Aren’t they fabulous? They’re frozen chocolate covered banana bites, sprinkled with a little walnut and toasted coconut love. I found the recipe on epicurious.com and tweaked it a bit.
Chocolate-Dipped Frozen Banana Bites
- 2 – 3.5 ounce dark bittersweet chocolate bars (I used Valrhona)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 3 bananas, cut into 3/4″ slices
- toasted coconut
- crushed walnuts, or any nut, cookie, candy sprinkles or candy bar
Melt the chocolate and butter. Carefully. Use the lowest possible heat, and don’t walk away. The chocolate just needs to melt. It should barely be warm, not hot.
Dip ’em. I used my fondue fork to dip the banana slices into the chocolate.
Add the crunchy exterior. Or not. I did leave a few just dipped in chocolate.
And so it begins. We’ve ordered our wood-burning pizza oven plans, and moved all of Chik’s left over pizza oven supplies from his house to ours.
