I have been around for over 26 years and I have never thought of glazing and freezing bananas ... until now....when I saw a post about this on Jennifurla's blog.
I have not made them following the exact same method, but they are quite the same in the end.
She used round sprinkles and I used chocolate Jimmies and while she dipped the banana in chocolate, I chose to just drizzle to glaze.
All in all, super easy and delicious.
Ah - and an all year round type of treat too, considering the fact that bananas are available at any time.
bamboo skewers or any other kind of wood sticks you like
parchment paper or waxed paper
First of all, the equipment needs to be ready for use, so start with the bamboo skewers and the paper lined dish that will go in the freezer.
Pick as many skewers as many bananas you have,
given the fact that you will cut both bananas and skewers in half.
Cut the sticks in half with either a knife or a special tool like this one
used to cut flower stems and them wash them and inspect for any loose pieces.
Line a tray / plate or dish with waxed or parchment paper and set it aside.
Place the chocolate in a plastic bag
and put it in a bowl of very hot water so that the chocolate melts easily.
Next, spread your toppings on plates and have them handy for dipping.
Peel the bananas
and cut them in half.
Prick each banana half and set on your work surface,
then drizzle chocolate.
Pick them up carefully and dip them in the toppings of your choice, then lay with the topped side down so that you can drizzle chocolate on the other side too.
Freeze for at least 3 hours or overnight.
This is how a coconut one looked after I moved it in the pan more than I should have.
You have to try these !
