Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas

I freakin' love bananas.  Seriously, there are SO many reasons to adore this particular fruit.  There's its absurd shape, it's lovely hue, it's amazing history...  The story of the banana is fraught with drama and comedy.  Alas, who now even remembers the Cavendish?  I adore the banana.  For years all of my internet aliases were bananas.  Crazy?  Perhaps.  Delicious?  Always.

Then there's chocolate.  Oh, chocolate.  Food of the Gods.  Seriously, the Incan holy beverage was made from cocoa beans.  And again, another food with a rich and wild history.

So much drama in this dessert!  So much to enjoy!  And of course, so delicious.  And deliciously simple.

  • 4-5 ripe banans
  • 3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c powdered sugar
  • bamboo skewers , with the sharp points cut off
In a double boiler,  melt the chocolate.  Stir in the sugar, and transfer into a low sided baking dish.

Poke the skewers through the bananas length-wise.

Roll the bananas in the chocolate, and then place on wax paper and IMMEDIATELY transfer to the freezer.  Leave in freezer for at least an hour.
