Chocolate covered bananas

Author: Bake Bellissima
serves 6

Ingredients

  • 3 medium ripe but firm bananas
  • 8 oz dark chocolate
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Peel 3 ripe bananas and cut into halves.
  2. Place the halves onto lollipop sticks and into the freezer in a single layer on a tray for 2 hours.
  3. Chop the pecans finely and place on a tray. Prepare a pan covered with wax paper for the dipped bananas.
  4. Once the bananas are ready to be dipped, melt the chocolate in a double boiler or a microwave, and pour into a tall glass (make sure chocolate is not too hot).
  5. Dip the bananas into the chocolate and roll into the nuts immediately as the chocolate begins to harden instantly. If the chocolate begins to set, pop into the microwave for 30 seconds.
  6. Allow to harden and serve or you can put these back in the freezer to snack on later. Make sure you thaw the bananas 10-15 minutes before serving as they need that time to soften a bit.
