|So, this is what our copy looked like before all the splatters.|
Now, you have to realize what I've got to work when it comes to a kitchen...a side-by-side set of college refrigerators and no working oven. So, if I can make it work with my limited skill set and less than ideal cookery, trust me when I say this is a recipe for all!
What You'll Need:
-6 bananas, peeled and sliced crosswise into thirds
-1 package wooden popsicle sticks
-16 oz. package semisweet chocolate pieces
-2 tablespoons butter
After peeling and cutting your bananas, the first step is to skewer the fruit with popsicle sticks. Word to the wise, I found my popsicle sticks in the craft/school supplies section of my grocery store--not the baked or frozen aisles.
Then, freeze the bananas for about 30 minutes. I literally just put them on a paper plate and left them in there as I watched an episode of The Cosby Show; no plastic wrap or aluminum foil required here.
Once your 30 minutes are up, remove the bananas from the freezer. Take one at a time, dipping them into your melted chocolate, making sure its completely covered.
I just left mine plain, and they were pretty tasty. But you can also roll the chocolate coated banana in chopped nuts, toasted coconut, or sprinkles to add a little extra flair.
Your sweet treats can be eaten right away, but I'd suggest placing them on a wax paper lined baking sheet and popping them back in the freezer for a bit.
Once they're completely frozen, the bananas can be stored in a plastic bag and should stay fresh for about a week.
|Now, the only problem is they're just like Lays Potato Chips...I can't eat just one!|
There you go. Here's a chance to relive your childhood without breaking the bank or cringing at the calorie count!
And if you're just really in the banana-y mood, here's a recipe for Not Yo Momma's Banana Pudding. It's not quite as healthy but just as delicious.
