Cooking time20 min
Delicious and healthy dessert - Popsicle banana! For its preparation it is necessary a minimum of ingredients, it is cooked for a few minutes, and use and enjoyment will bring very much! Cook the bananas in chocolate with the children - they like to do such an unusual "ice cream"!
Very tasty dessert turned out! Light sweetness of bananas have set off a bitter hint of chocolate. Soft core and crispy glaze. We loved it!
Prepare the food for cooking. I took dark chocolate, but will fit any - and bitter, and milky. Take high-quality chocolate, from its taste depends on the taste of the entire dish. One of the tiles (and they are now basically 90 grams) was enough for two large banana, but a little glaze left. Milk or cream you can not add them to the chocolate will be more liquid, it will be easier to apply to the banana.
Bananas peel and cut into roughly equal pieces. I have a large fruit, I cut it into three pieces. If the bananas are small, you will need two pieces.
Put slices of bananas on wooden sticks. It can be sticks for ice cream, skewers for canapes or wooden skewers. But note that the banana fruit is quite heavy and too thin sticks can not withstand its weight and to break.
Nuts chop into small pieces. I got the hazelnut, but generally will fit any and all - walnuts, peanuts, almonds, cashews. For bolder flavor, you can slightly fry the nuts in the pan.
Melt the chocolate. To do this, take a bowl and add the chocolate, broken into pieces. Stir in the milk. In a saucepan boil water. Place the bowl with chocolate into the pot of boiling water. This is called water bath. Note that the pot and the bowl must be suitable in size, and the water level should be below the bottom of the bowl. In a water bath the chocolate melted quickly and correctly.
Chocolate steam heat boiling in the pot of water, will soon begin to melt. With blades mix it with milk until smooth - so it turns out chocolate frosting. If it is too thick, add some more milk. The glaze is ready, remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Take a banana impaled on a stick and spread on chocolate frosting on all sides.
Sprinkle the banana covered with chocolate, nuts or candy sprinkles as desired.
Glazed banana, gently flip down the stick and secure it on something to dry. I took the bowl from the double boiler. You can stick a stick into something soft. If sticks long then just put the bananas in a glass. When the icing dries, put the bananas on a plate and put in the refrigerator. It chocolate hardens and bananas are easier to eat.
