Bananas Behaving Badly

I melted about a half cup of chocolate chips in the microwave (who'd have thunk it, but Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips is the cheapest dairy-free chocolate I've found, at $3.50-$4 per 12-oz bag). I peeled two bananas, coated them with the melted chocolate, and pressed some dried shredded coconut and walnut pieces onto them. I placed the bedazzled bananas on plastic wrap (you could also use parchment paper) and froze them for 4 hours so the banana got frozen and creamy.

I encourage you to naughtify the bananas with whatever toppings you want: sprinkles, any type of nuts, sunflower seeds, caramel.

Coating the bananas was messy (there was a lot of finger-licking) but the end result was worth it. Maybe next time I will use skewers or popsicle sticks. Or, I could try not being such a beast and only coat one side of the banana's length (unlikely).

What is your favorite fruit to dress up? What do you do with it?

  1. I love bananas behaving badly.
    That's the only way I like 'em.
    Too funny. Asking a bunch of vegans what they do with their fruit.....:)
