Ooooh, these are so yummy. And decadent tasting too! They remind me of those little Dove ice cream miniatures that my Grandma always had when we came for a visit. But, instead of ice cream these are made from bananas. And if you use your imagination a bit you can almost talk yourself into thinking they ARE ice cream since the frozen banana ends up resembling vanilla ice cream in color & texture.
HERE is where I got the recipe and here's my quick summarized version:
I melted about 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 1/2 cup peanut butter in the microwave in 20-30 increments till it was smooth & runny. I cut the bananas up into chunks and dipped them in the chocolate mixture, then put them on a greased pan. Sprinkled some with coconut and some with walnuts then slid the pan into the freezer for a couple hours.
Here they are shortly after dipping-
Here they are chillin'-
And here's a few of them all done-
Don't they look fancy & sinful? Of course all that chocolate isn't the healthiest, but they are much better than Dove minis! And for a tasty dessert, one is more than enough to satisfy me.
