Ingredients

  • 4 strips of bacon, cooked crispy
  • 1/2 Cup almond butter
  • 1 Cup chocolate chips

When you're ready, place your enjoy life chocolate chips or dark chocolate in a double boiler and temper your chocolate until it is melted. Remove your bananas from the freezer and dip each one in your melted chocolate and return them to your cookie sheet. Sprinkle them all with cinnamon and then return to the freezer. Keep frozen until ready to serve

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
