LET’S MAKE IT

INGREDIENTS

1 Large Banana (buy as large as possible)
1 Bar of milk chocolate
1 Scoop of vanilla ice cream
Rainbow Sprinkles
Whipped Cream
Cherries

Yield: 3 mini bites

EQUIPMENT

Heatproof bowl
Tin foil or Parchment Paper

STEP 1

Place a piece of parchment paper or tin foil on a chopping board and set aside.

STEP 2

Add a generous amount of sprinkles to a plate and set aside.

STEP 3

Put 6 squares of milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl and place the bowl in a pot of boiling water. Stir the chocolate until completely melted.

Tip – If you have the pot on a stove do not continue to boil the water in the pot because the chocolate will burn and separate.

STEP 4

Chop the banana into 3 sections. I managed to make mine approx 6cm each.

STEP 5

Take one banana section and core a well with a spoon or I used a mini melon scoop.

Then fill the core with vanilla ice cream then sit it on a plate until the next step.

Repeat the process for each section of the banana.

Tip Ensure you do not core to the bottom of the banana as the ice cream will fall out.

STEP 6

Take a section of banana then dip the closed side into the melted chocolate then place the chocolate side down into the plate of sprinkles until the chocolate is covered.

Transfer the banana to the parchment paper or tinfoil covered board.

Repeat the process for each section of the banana then add to the freezer for 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

STEP 7

Remove the banana bites from the freezer and top each bite with whipped cream then add a cherry on top.

Serve and enjoy.

If you need to make a lot of these brush the bananas with pineapple juice after they have been peeled and cut to stop them from browning quickly.
