What a cute finger dessert! My bananas must have been small, because I kept getting my fingers in the chocolate, trying to dip and then turn them out on the plate! So, after that, I decided to spoon and drizzle the chocolate over them. I do agree with Syd that these would be even cuter with sprinkles. Thnx for the recipe, Sharon. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!

These made for a GREAT & UNUSUAL addition to my finger food counter, & with a little bit of festive sprinkles on top would fit nicely into the winter holidays! Thanks for the keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]

This is a fun and delicious recipe. I made these with my 5 year old, and she had fun dipping the bananas, but even more fun eating them. A great recipe for adults and "little chefs" as well. Thanks for posting!
