Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas

So basically its been super hot lately.  And with that, our need for dessert goes from warm gooey cakes to cold and icy delights.  We decided to create our own version of Trader Joe's Gone Bananas, which are delicious little bite sized  frozen banana chips and chocolate. These Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas are ridiculously simple with only 2 ingredients. Plus even more importantly, Ashley recently got herself a new camera.  One that makes taking pictures of our kitchen creations even more enticing.  So you can be sure that there will be plenty of recipes to come soon!

There are really two ingredients needed.  Bananas and chocolate. 

Start by slicing bananas into small pieces.

Place the slices onto a lined cookie sheet and freeze for 10 mins.

 Meanwhile heat the chocolate in a saucepan over low heat.

Add a small piece of paraffin wax into the saucepan.  Continue stirring until completely melted.

Ashley's Tip: The more wax you use the thinner the chocolate.  If you want the bananas to be covered in a thicker layer of chocolate use less wax.

Use a toothpick to dip the bananas in the chocolate.

Aubree's Note: if the bananas get soft and the toothpicks fall out put them back into the freezer for a few minutes.

Once they are dipped put them back onto the sheet and into the freezer.  Now the patience has to occur--it takes about 30-40 minutes for the bananas to completely freeze.

Super quick and easy, these go even faster with more hands.  Also if you have other fruit laying around the house the chocolate is perfect to cover strawberries and such.
