I love eating frozen fruit. I remember growing-up we used to have huge contatiners of frozen peaches, melon balls, and raspberries in our freezer. I used to love sneaking in there and grabbing handfuls to snack on during the hot summers. I also remember the first time I had a frozen banana dipped in chocolate and then dipped in peanuts. It was so good! Now I want my kids to have some of those same great memories. How fun would it be to make these dipped bananas with them? You could even set-up a topping bar so they can pick and choose what they want on their bananas. If you aren’t too big on chocolate, I have also heard that using yogurt instead is just as yummy.
Here’s what you need to make these:
- 2 ripe but firm bananas
- 6 ounces dark chocolate, chopped, or semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup granola, chopped pecans and walnuts, or sprinkles (optional)
- (yields 4 servings)
