A couple weeks ago, on a Sunday I was so bored I couldnt find myself a comfortable place. I was antsy to do something, but didn’t know what. I was bugging Cookies for some entertainment and he probably being annoyed reminded me about those great little chocolates I showed him the day before from The Kitchn (http://www.thekitchn.com/).
Smirking, he asked if I would like to try to make them and he will sacrifice his FREE TIME 0_o and go for the ingredients… I couldn’t believe how much it brightened my day ;-). We went to the nearest store (I won’t mention which, cause I actually don’t like it – though no choice) and purchased the items that I was lacking.
3 nice yellow bananas – no black spots but must be firm
1,5 dark chocolate bar (150g), of course if you are not on a diet… use milk chocolate, what the hell! 0_o
¼ of a cube of butter
A mix of products you could sprinkle on the chocolates – since I fight with myself to not eat real sweets I went diet: coconut flakes, sliced almonds and sesame cookies. It can be anything, crushed cookies, peanuts, anything that you like or have.
Melt the chocolate with butter in a water bath (put the bowl on the pot with slow boiling water). While the chocolate is melting, cut the bananas into mouth size bites, and then set aside. When the chocolate is melted nice and shiny, take the bowl off the heat and let it cool down – I just left it on the windowsill for 15 min.
Stick a fork into the cut banana and coat it thoroughly with chocolate (you can do it with your hands, but since I’m clumsy and constantly dropping everything, I used a fork). Stick the banana into coating and cover fully. Keep repeating this process until you are out of bananas. After all is done, put it into the freezer for 3h.
Enjoy a nice dessert after Sunday dinner.
And until next time, take care of yourself and each other 0_o
P.S. The original recipe you can find here, again I found it on The Kitchn.
