Chocolate-Coated Banana Melts

Ahhh……..What can be more heavenly than banana and chocolate all in the same bite?

Not very much, except for the combination of the sweet natural taste of banana together with frozen chocolate that melts in your mouth.

Imagine that, savor it, taste it and lick your lips because there are chocolate stains around them, the only evidence left of the decadent dessert you have just devoured without inhibition.  Lost in chocolate heaven, you feel yourself floating in the air, high from the beautiful sweetness of cocoa and bananas.

Yeah, trust me, IT’S THAT AWESOME. Don’t believe me? Then try it yourself. You’ll be back for more.

CHOCOLATE-COATED BANANA MELTS (Makes 50)

      Mummy, yes make this dessert because it is so easy and yummy. It’s that sort of emergency dessert you whip up when friends tell you last minute that they are coming over and you don’t have alot of time to make snacks!

    I grew up with these made from whole bananas dipped in chocolate then frozen – Those taste great, but are they ever hard to eat! Cutting them into bites is a brilliant improvement – Thanks! I’m looking forward to making these for my kids this weekend.

      Hi Rebecca :)

      Yep, bite size pieces are great cos you can eat much lesser (or more) depending on your appetitle. Whole bananas are great but they fill you up really fast, and a whole banana might be too much especially if you’re eating them for dessert!

      hope your kids like them too!!

      Have a great labour day weekend!
