Ied Al Fitr is around the corner my dear readers! You know what that means right? Fatty-cholesterol-laden-yet-oh-my-god-so-good-food around the corner!
As kids, I’m not exactly fond of the main course (but now I do!), I was more of the dessert lover kinda kid. Let it be crackers, sweets, anything! It hits the spot!
But today, let me introduce you to the awesome 2 ingredient dessert you can make with your nephew and kids; CHOCOLATE DIPPED BANANA!
For 3 bananasicle (yes, that’s a word), you will need:
3 medium sized Bananas. Make sure it’s Ripe!
110 grams of Dark Chocolate. Always use the ones with a lot of Cocoa Butter in it!
(optional) Rainbow sprinkles
(optional) Crushed peanuts.
3 popsicle sticks
You will also need a tool to coat the Bananas with chocolate. I'm using a silicone baster i usually use for BBQ. But spoon will work fine too!
Ready? Here We Go!
Step 1 – Peel your already-ripened Bananas. Be careful, don’t damage it.
|Peely peely peely|
|2 and a half Banana|
Step 2 – Grab the Popsicle sticks; stick it deep inside the Banana, GENTLY. (LOL, this sounded so wrong). Freeze the Banana for at least an hour or two inside the freezer.
|Banana: The Stick of (almost) truth|
|SHOVE IT IN|
Step 3 – Grab a microwave proof bowl, and pour the chocolate chip in. Melt the chocolate in 30 seconds burst. It took me 3 bursts of 30 to melt the chocolate completely.
|After 30 seconds|
|After 60 seconds|
|After 90 seconds. DONE!|
Step 4 – Pour the melted chocolate over the freezing Banana. Ensure to coat it completely, after that, you can sprinkle your toppings. I’m going for the rainbow sprinkles!. After this, freeze it for another 4-5 hours to harden completely.
Step 5 – Serve!
A perfect treat for the summer holiday is here! If I were to describe the taste, it actually resembles a banana ice cream with hard chocolate coating on top. Kinda like eating one of those famous ice cream Bar here (*cough* M**n**m), but definitely healthier (Hello, no dairy?)
This will surely be a hit among the youngsters in the family. And those with sweet tooth, too!
Give this a try, and let me know how it turns out!
