Frozen Chocolate Bananas with Coconut

Need a quick ice cream substituent if you have a craving?  Or just need a perfect quick summer recipe for your BBQ?  This could not be a more quick and simple recipe – Frozen Chocolate Bananas with Coconuts are just a very simple dessert to make any time. It helps with your Ice cream craving and your chocolate craving. You can make it the night before and just throw it in the freezer for a party any time.

I was watching the Food Network the other day and Paula Dean was making these things and i just thought it was a brilliant idea and started making them right away.  I had all the ingredients and it took me about 15 minutes to make.  I even had to have a few pieces before i put them in the fridge, delicious.

Frozen Chocolate Bananas with Coconut

Adapted from: Paula Dean

Yields: 6-8 servings | Prep Time: 25 min | Cook Time: 5 min

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
3 large bananas cut into large bite-size pieces

Place the chocolate chips into a double boiler. Stir constantly, and when the chocolate is melted, stir in the vegetable oil.

Place the coconut in a separate shallow dish and break up any clumps with your fingers.

Cut the banana into bite-size pieces Spear each banana half with a cute wooden toothpick.

Holding on to the stick, dip the banana in the chocolate and turn to coat evenly. Roll the chocolate-covered banana in the dish of coconut and transfer the banana to a plate lined with waxed paper or aluminum foil. Repeat with the rest of the bananas. Place the plate in the freezer for at least 20 minutes and up to 8 hours. Serve cold, on the stick.

    I always have extra bananas on hand. Seems we can never eat them fast enough. I like that these are simple bite sized treats that you can make in advance.

    Coconut – didn’t thought of adding that.

    I personally slice them. This way i don’t have to much banana in my mouth – my preference.
