Frozen Chocolate Bananas

Frozen Chocolate Bananas
Jane Bruce

There is something very satisfying about a recipe that uses only two ingredients. And when one of those ingredients is chocolate, you're sure to have a crowd-pleaser on your hands.

Frozen bananas have a great texture and they are an excellent substitute for overprocessed, store-bought popsicles. These do require a bit of forward planning because it's best to use silicone molds, but if you don't want to take it that far, you can always take out a step and just dip halved bananas. The key to this recipe is fun: Melted chocolate is fun, mashing bananas is fun, and eating such a delectable treat on a stick is certainly fun. It doesn't hurt that it's delicious, too.

Directions

Mash the bananas fully.

Heat the chocolate in a pot over low heat and stir continously until just melted. Using a small spoon (or, for particular accuracy, a very small pastry brush) brush the chocolate onto the sides of a silicone chocolate mold, ensuring that every part of the surface is covered. Try to ensure there is not too much chocolate.

Spoon in the mashed bananas and then place a final small layer of chocolate on top. Place popsicle sticks into the molds and put in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

Remove and serve immediately.

Notes

Note: If you do not own a silicone mold, you can skip the mashing, cut each banana in half, and dip the bananas in chocolate. While they will not have the same texture, this can be an easy substitute.
