Frozen Bananas


There's always money in the banana stand! I couldn't make it down to the big yellow joint, so I thought it would be fun to make a few frozen bananas. I'd never had a frozen banana before this and I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty but also simple and healthy(for a dessert) it was. I just used a simple chocolate ganache and some peanuts for the coating as it was my first time, but you could really get crazy with this idea and make all sorts of different topping combos.

Rich helped out by crushing up some peanuts.

A quick dip in the ganache. This was just bittersweet and milk chocolate chips with a splash of cream and microwaved until melted.

Coat with the peanuts. Don't go overboard though, it's not mardi gras.

When I finished mine, in true Bluth fashion, I just ate it and let everyone else make their own. By this time I was tired from a lot of cooking, and my kitchen was clearly a mess.

I really liked these though! I was kind of surprised.

Don't let Mr. Bananagrabber get you!

The ganache was a cup each of bittersweet and milk chocolate chips, a pinch of salt and 1/4 cup of cream. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until all melted. Freeze the bananas for about an hour and a half with a popsicle stick in one end. Dip the frozen bananas into the ganache and coat with the broken peanuts.


A local ice cream shop does some crazy stuff with frozen bananas - I like the old fashioned ganache and peanuts though - tasty!

I am enjoying this perfect union of Arrested Development and food so hard. Thankyou.
