These are great for after school snacks or a cool treat after a day outside. Yeah, it's warm in Florida at the end of January! A delightful bite of creamy, frozen banana, deep dark chocolate and your favorite topping.
Frozen Dark Chocolate Banana Slices
For One Banana
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, I use Hershey's Special Dark
1 teaspoon coconut oil or solid shortening
favorite toppings, optional
Put dark chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small microwave proof bowl. In microwave, 1100 watt, heat on high for 30 seconds..stir until melted. If needed, heat it another 10 seconds at 5 seconds intervals so you don't overheat the chocolate. Put a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet or platter that is freezer proof. Dip sliced banana in melted dark chocolate. Tap the fork on the edge to remove excess chocolate. Place on a piece of parchment paper. Top with your favor toppings, if desired. Put in freezer until frozen solid. My boys were eating them after 30 minutes. The chocolate was hardened but the banana wasn't completely frozen.
