Frozen Banana Dipped in Chocolate

Chocolate Coated Frozen Banana

 

One of the Things I Know is that many of people are unaware of the joy of a frozen banana, I plan to rectify that and add to the joy by putting chocolate into the equation and shouting it out loud – frozen banana and chocolate are a match made in heaven.

The other thing I know is that Mum is always right – Hi Mum 😉

When I was growing up my mum would peel a banana and quarter oranges, wrap them in al. foil and put them in the freezer. My brother and I would eat them like an ice block on a hot summer day. They were popular for an after school snack. We ate them without the chocolate sauce. Read on because I also recommend this treat as an after dinner delight for entertaining. They are yummy, by adding the chocolate sauce it makes them a little bit decadent – and they look interesting. 

Bananas : Prepare the day before

  1. Peel as many bananas as you have guests – do not leave the skin on or you will never get it off.
  2. Cut it if you want to so that the shape is consistent on all them
  3. Insert an icy pole stick into the base of the banana
  4. Wrap the bananas in Al foil tightly and place into the freezer for 6 hours or overnight

Chocolate Sauce:

I have used the recipe from my Double Chocolate Semifreddo with Banana, Pecan and Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 100grams of good quality cooking chocolate chopped – I used Lindt “Dessert” cooking chocolate
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste
  • 150 ml of pouring cream
  • 1/2 cup of icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water

Chocolate Sauce Ingredients

 

Steps:

  1. Combine the water, sugar, cream and vanilla and stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves
  2. Stir in the chocolate until it melts
  3. Put in a pouring jug to serve warm

    I made something similar from a kid’s story book called “No More Biscuits” (http://www.paeonylewis.com/page11.html). My little girl loved them. So did I! Who wouldn’t love chocolate coated food!

      Hi Veronica, that is neat. I will have to have a look at the book. I have not heard of it. Kyrstie

    Hey Kyrstie, What happens if you leave the bananas in the freezer for a week or more – can they still be used? I seem to either have a lot of banana’s here or none!!!

    Cheers

      Hi Jodie, I have never had a problem with them being in the freezer for more than a week. they are usually dug out and eaten before that time 🙂 I would personally eat any I have within a couple of months. We only tend to stock them up in the freezer over the summer months as they are too chilly to eat in the winter! Website http://eatbydate.com recommends eating frozen fruit within 6-8 months so long as there are no signs of spoilage (eg: covered in white ice) Make sure the bananas are peeled and stored in either a freezer safe container, zip lock bag or I use Al foil wrapped tightly around the banana. Hope this helps. K
