Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally.

Dipping decorations: granola, chopped nuts, sprinkles, jimmies, crushed cookies, and toasted coconut

Arrange the dipping decorations on several flat plates. Working with 1 banana at a time, dip it in the chocolate and turn to completely coat (spoon some on, if needed). Roll the dipped Dipping decorations: granola, chopped nuts, sprinkles, jimmies, crushed cookies, and toasted coconutbanana in the desired decorations, transfer to the sheet pan, and return to the freezer if not to be eaten right away.

Once frozen, store the bananas in an airtight container.

Serving suggestion: To serve at a kid’s party, paint a hunk of styrofoam and stick the banana handles in the top, so they stand upright.

These are so colorful and festive looking it makes you feel like it’s a party when you look at an assortment of them. And they couldn’t be easier to make, even your kids could do it. You can use white chocolate too, for a more wintry or icy look.

Rum-Broiled Grapefruit

Broil a grapefruit – If you’ve never done this before, you are seriously missing out.

Grapefruit is good but broiled grapefruit is Awesome.

The sugars caramelize and the flesh gets a little warm and gooey and it’s a sweet, tangy, brûléed masterpiece for your tastebuds.

Ingredients

  • 2 pink or red grapefruit, halved crosswise
  • ¼ cup dark rum
  • ⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla sugar

Decorate with 4 stemmed maraschino cherries.

Instructions

Heat the oven broiler.
Trim the ends of grapefruit halves so they sit flat when upright; transfer to a baking sheet cut side up.
Run a knife around edges and between segments of grapefruit to loosen them.
Brush 1 tbsp. rum over each half and sprinkle each with about 1½ tbsp. sugar. Dust with cinnamon and vanilla sugar;
Place under a broiler for 5-6 minutes until the brown sugar is bubbly and beginning to brown and caramelize.
Remove from oven. Let cool for a minute. Eat while still warm.

Raspberry Ice Cubes

For hot summer days, when you want to add that extra little flavour to your water – add ice cubes with Raspberries. Or if you just have some extra raspberries after your last dinner party.

They are drop-dead easy to make.

Just add a few raspberries into the icecube tray. Add water and freeze until you want to use them.

Strawberry Santas

Here is a cute tip to make small and big kids enjoy a healthy snack for christmas and advent.

What do you need?
1 lb large strawberries
1 pkg (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
3-4 Tbsp powdered sugar (or sugar substitute – to taste)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Rinse the strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top, (enough for a hat).

Clean out the whole strawberry with a paring knife, if necessary (some of them are hollow already. Prep all of the strawberries and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.

Once strawberries are filled, top with the ‘hats.’ Decorate according to photo.
If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.

Strawberry WaterMelon Juice

My favourite Juice is made of Strawberries and WaterMelon.

It has a beautiful color and the 2 fruits really compliments each other in taste.

For 2 Gallons (about 7.5 litres) of Juice I use 1 small watermelon and 1 kg strawberries.

Clean the watermelon from its seeds and clean the strawberries.

Mix in a blender.

Add 3-4 dl of Sugar (helps the taste as well as the durability) and fill the container with water until full. Shake well and serve cold!

Enjoy your Strawberry Watermelon Juice :D It’s Yummylicious !!
