Ingredients

  • 3 bananas sliced or halved
  • 6 oz Ghiradelli dark chocolate about 12 squares (I used 72% cacao)(can also use 1 cup of dark chocolate chips)
  • 4-6 Tablespoons cream enough to make a consistency you can dip bananas into
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • Nutella mixed with some cream to make it spreadable (optional)

Directions

  1. Prepare cookie sheet by lining with parchment of waxed paper. Make sure that it will fit into your freezer.
  2. Cut one banana into round slices then cut the other two bananas in half and insert a popsicle stick or thick wooden skewer into each half.
  3. Place all prepared bananas on cookie sheet and place in freezer for about 2 hours or until well frozen.
  4. When ready to assemble, break dark chocolate into pieces and place in microwave-safe measuring cup with 4 Tablespoons of cream. Microwave for 15 seconds and stir to melt chocolate. If there are still chunks of unmelted chocolate place back in microwave for an additional 15 seconds. If chocolate looks too thick, add more cream until it reaches desired consistency.
  5. Remove banana pieces from freezer. Using a fork or toothpick for the slices and the popsicle stick for the larger pieces, dip banana into chocolate and place back on cookie sheet. If it is easier for you, you can also spread the chocolate on them. If you prefer, you can then roll them in the chopped nuts, granola or sprinkles then place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining frozen bananas then refreeze for at least 3 hours.
  6. If you want to try covering them with Nutella, which is really addictive, place desired amount of Nutella in microwave safe dish and heat for 10 seconds in microwave. Add a small amount of cream and mix until it is smooth and spreadable. You can also roll these in chopped nuts or sprinkles as well. Freeze as stated above.
  7. Take out and eat frozen for a sublime treat.
