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.

Chocolate Banana ice cream

Ingredients
  • 4 bananas, peeled, cut into chunks, and frozen
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa or similar, like 2 packets The Daily Good Greens Chocolate
  • a few tablespoons of water
  • 1 chocolate bar (100 grams or 4 ounces), such as SuperFoods Chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • peanut butter and sea salt for topping
Instructions
  1. Let the bananas soften for a while at room temperature or in the microwave. You don’t want them to be rock hard because they’ll take a toll on your food processor or blender, but you don’t want them to be soft because you’ll get more of a smoothie texture. They should be frozen but starting to soften on the outside.
  2. Pulse the bananas in a food processor until smooth. This is a heavy duty task – a blender can do it, but it’s going to need some help (a few stirs here and there) to move through the blender smoothly.
  3. Dissolve the cocoa in the water to allow it to incorporate into the ice cream better. Add the chocolate paste to the food processor and puree again until incorporated.
  4. Stir in the chocolate bits and anything else you might like – vanilla, sea salt, etc. Serve topped with drizzled peanut butter!

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These lovely chocolate chip cookies are crispy and very tasty.
They are made with Sweetened Condensed milk which works as an egg replacer in this recipe.

Yields: 30 cookies
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooks: 15-20 minutes (depending on your oven – Mine were done after 17 minutes)

Ingredients:
1 Cup Butter (Softened to room temperature)
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 Can)
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1.5 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips/Chunks (I Used White Chocolate Chips)
Optional Nuts (I Used Chopped Walnuts For 1 Batch)

Procedure:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C  (350F) for 15 minutes.
  • Grease baking sheets or line it with parchment paper.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until pale and creamy (for 5 minutes).
  • In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder and combine well.

  • Pour in the condensed milk, vanilla extract and beat to combine.

20130210_133401

  • Stir dry ingredients into the butter mixture, then add the chocolate chips and nuts (if using).
  • Combine it well using a spatula. Don’t beat it.

20130210_133454

  • Take a tablespoonful of dough, roll it and flatten it using your fingers.
  • Grease the tablespoon, so that the dough will fall off easily.

20130210_135104

  • Bake it for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. (The color check can be done if using all purpose flour only. Mine were done at 17 minutes).
  • Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes in the baking sheet itself. Don’t try to remove it. It may look unbaked but it will become hard on the baking sheet itself.
  • After 5-10 minutes, using a spatula transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

20130210_141014

Notes:

  1. If you are using a dark (black) color non stick baking sheet, reduce the baking time by 1 or 2 minutes, so that the bottom does not get burnt.
  2. The cookies were crispy, not chewy. So if you want a chewy chocolate chip cookie, I think decreasing the quantity of butter or increasing the all purpose flour would be helpful.
