Ingredients: – 1 large (8-inch) ripe banana – 16 small wooden skewers (preferably two-prong design) – 3 ounces 72% dark bittersweet chocolate, chopped, or ¾ cup of dark chocolate chips
Preparation: Peel the banana and cut it crosswise into 16 slices; skewer each slice and place it on a waxed-paper-lined plate. Freeze for at least 1 hour Place the chocolate in a small saucepan. Cook over very low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the chocolate is almost completely melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat; stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Tip the saucepan to one side and dip each frozen banana slice in the chocolate so that it is completely covered. Scrape the bottom of the banana slice on the edge of the saucepan, letting the excess chocolate flow back into the saucepan. Place the chocolate-dipped banana slices back onto the waxed-paper-lined plate and freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving. Store in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Note: This recipe requires time to freeze, but the delayed gratification is well worth the wait!
