Chocolate Banana BonBons

/

I've spent a lot of time recently going through the recipes that I still need to make. My desserts binder is completely overflowing. This is not a good thing for my waistline. I'm just really glad that the fitness center is literally right outside my window. Ironically its outside my kitchen window. So, you know, I can stare at it while I'm making rather unhealthy items.

I picked up a few bananas at the grocery store to add to my breakfast granola. I swear I only put 3 bananas in the cart, but when I got home, there were 5 bananas in the bag. I have no idea where these two mysterious bananas came from but I knew there was no way I'd be able to use 5 bananas before they went bad and then I remembered this simple recipe.

Bonbons is a word that makes me laugh. Mostly because I picture a 1950's housewife perched on her new couch wearing a full face of make up and heels at 8 in the morning impatiently waiting for her husband to leave for work so she can kick off her heels and curl up on the couch with a romance novel and a box of chocolate bonbons. I have no idea where this mental image came from, but it amuses me.

Ingredients:
    • 2 medium bananas
    • 2 oz. dark chocolate

Directions:
1. Cut the bananas into 1" pieces. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler.
2. Dip one end of the banana into the chocolate and swirl to coat. Place chocolate side up on a sheet of wax paper.
3. Place the wax paper onto a plate and freeze for at least one hour. Transfer to an airtight container if not serving immediately.

This is the perfect little bite sized dessert! I don't even chew them, I just let the banana soften as the chocolate melts in my mouth. Just don't try that and then attempt to have a conversation. It doesn't go so well. Especially if you have sensitive teeth.
