What a great idea! My DS and I had just read "Curious George in the Candy Factory" so it was perfect timing to make our own banana candy! It was a kitchen project that he could really get involved in, which is hard to find for a 3 year old. His favorites were rolled in sprinkles; I preferred plain. Even DH enjoyed them, and they were a hit after dinner on a hot day. DS has already asked to make these again, so I know it will be a repeat recipe. Thanks so much for posting, Queen Dana! Made for ZWT 7.
- 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- such as crushed chocolate sandwich style cookies, toffee bits, chopped butterfinger candy bars, chopped salted peanuts or toasted shreddred sweetened coconut
- 3 rip bananas, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
Directions See How It's Made
- Stir chocolate and oil in heavy small saucepan over low heat just until smooth. Let stand 15 minutes to cool.
- Place each topping in separate shallow dish. Line baking sheet with foil. Arrange banana slices on foil. Using fingers dip banana slice in chocolate, coating completely. Shake off excess chocolate. Drop dipped banana in 1 topping. Using clean hand, sprinkle more topping over banana to coat; transfer to foil-lined sheet. Repeat with remaining bananas, chocolate, and toppings. Freeze until firm, about 3 hours, then serve.
