|All fruit should be this cute!|
Have you ever had a treat and wanted to eat it until you were sick? No? So really I am the only one? Okay well I still think I'm normal, at least compared to some.
So back to something so good you want to eat it until you are sick. When I was in Disney last year I had a really hard time not eating every darn thing in site. Huge Mickey Mouse cupcake? Yep I want it. Chocolate covered marshmallows? I'm there. Sugar free candy of all types? I ate enough to make myself sick. I have eating issues, I can admit it. I am learning, but sometimes I just take one bite too many and really pay for it.
Okay sorry that was so long and rambly, and what I really wanted to say was that I found something that I really loved, and other than my 12 year old boy mind, I liked eating. At the ice cream carts I found these frozen bananas that were dipped in chocolate and covered in peanuts. So like I said amazing, and I giggled and tried to hide while I was eating it. My sister got a good picture of me eating one, not one of my finest moments.
So I really liked them but they were still so big I could not eat it all, it was just too much. I wanted to make them a much smaller treat to have at home. My first attempt was okay. I took a large banana and cut it into rounds, froze it and then dipped them in chocolate and sprinkled nuts on top. It was not bad, but not the same.
I wanted to get the fun and silliness of a banana on a stick. And I know that sounds like a dirty joke or something, but you know what I mean. I hope.
So I asked Hubby to pick up some baby bananas at the store. The last time I went they sold them in packs of like six. He came home with about 20. 20 baby bananas, what the heck am I going to do with 20 baby bananas. I will be the only one eating these, so lets just say I have been eating plain banana's for a few days
|Poor bananas didn't even see it coming!|
So to start I pealed them and put a wooden skewer in almost all the way through. I then put them on a plate and put them in the freezer.
I left them for a few hours, until they were solid, so they do not fall off the skewer. Then I melted some chocolate candy melts and ground up some peanuts. I have to make these things when Hubby is out, so I was careful to get rid of the crumbs.
|I just buy the cheap peanuts, and keep them in the freezer until I need them. My little food processor works great for this.|
|All set up and ready to go.|
|I like to think I am funny, but I just don't have anything that funny to say about this. It's just wrong if you ask me.|
|Since they are frozen the chocolate sets really quickly, so roll them fast. And you could even leave them on the plate to dry.|
|I am 12 years old inside, so this just cracks me up!|
Then I put them in a container and back into the freezer. We have so much stuff in our freezer that I had to put them into a container or they would have gotten crushed.
|No one wants a crushed banana.|
And I want to point out how healthy these are, what with the fruit and nuts, you are practically burning calories eating them!
