Easy Japanese Recipes

Frozen Chocolate Banana


Frozen Chocolate Banana Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com When you have small children at home like me, it’s very handy to have banana around the house all the time.  My children like to put banana in their morning cereal and it makes a very handy snack whenever they are hungry.  For banana recipes, my children like to request for my Banana Bread but their favorite banana treat is the Frozen Chocolate Bananas.

See, as I call myself a baker-in-training, when it comes to desserts I rely on easy dessert recipes such as this frozen banana and Chocolate Covered Strawberries.  They are my go to treats for my children that I can make quickly within half an hour.

After sharing many ice cream recipes, I thought it’s time to share some frozen dessert recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker. :-)  I highly recommend this treat for your summer parties, children’s play dates, or just simply a guilty pleasure for anyone.  Enjoy!

Frozen Chocolate Banana | Just One Cookbook

Frozen Chocolate Banana Recipe
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: Makes 8 frozen chocolate bananas
Ingredients
  • 4 ripe but firm bananas
  • 8.8 oz (250g) dark or semisweet chocolate (chips)
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil (optional – I don’t usually need it)
  • 2 handfuls of almonds
  • 8 Popsicle sticks
Instructions
  1. Line a toaster oven tray with aluminum foil and toast the almonds in a toaster oven.
  2. Chop or grind the toasted almonds.
  3. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the bananas in half, insert a Popsicle stick into each half, and then peel bananas. Place them on the baking sheet.
  4. Cut the chocolate into small pieces (so it melts easily) if you are not using chocolate chips. Put the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and add vegetable oil (to make the chocolate texture smooth, but I normally skip). Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring with a spoon in between each heating. The chocolate pieces might look they are not melted but when you stir, they can be already super soft. Be careful not to overheat; when it burns you can’t use the chocolate anymore.
  5. Roll each banana in the melted chocolate and use a spoon to pour the chocolate over the banana to coat. Then immediately sprinkle almonds onto chocolate before it sets.
  6. Freeze chocolate bananas for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve or put them in an airtight container/Ziploc bag for up to a week.
Notes
You can sprinkle granola, chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, etc) or sprinkles.

    These look delicious! And I love the addition of almonds. Trader Joe’s makes some frozen chocolate covered banana slices that I’ve been meaning to reproduce in my own kitchen/freezer, but dipping whole bananas in chocolate looks even easier (to make AND eat), and seems just as tasty!

    This is one of my sisters favorite treats when we go to the county fair in my home town:-) I love chocolate covered bananas! It definitely would be a perfect treat for kids:-) Love your pictures! Hugs, Terra

    お久しぶりです♪お元気そうでなによりです。

    あいかわらずのおいしそうなお料理とお菓子、この暑い夏のさなかでも食欲が湧いてきます!フローズンチョコバナナ、最高においしそう!今だったら冷凍庫から出したら即溶けてしまう。でも食べたいな~。なんだか懐かしい風貌もかわいらしいですよね。

    今年の夏は暑いですね。今、日本は36度超えの毎日。SFの涼しい夏が懐かしいです。

    I made these last night and not only were they a HUGE hit, but I think the whole thing took less than 10 minutes to put together. Thank you so much for the great idea.

    Love these special treats and you made them look so great too, love the ribbon. I have a recipe in my archives for these too but use coconut oil to make a thin chocolate covering, but your look quite decadent.

    These are so pretty! Chocolate and bananas are one of my all-time favorite combinations, and this looks so easy.

    I don’t have kids but I’m making these for me and hubs. I always have all the ingredients for this at home–no reason not to make it. Looking forward to this. :)

    These are awesome. an awesome treat! But what I love most is that Trader Joes pound chocolate bar because it just solidifies that the two of us are more alike than you might think. LOL. It’s the perfect bar for this recipe…and just about everything else chocolate that you can imagine.

    I love bananas like this. I keep some cut up and dipped in the freezer for snacking on. So good. And whenever we do chocolate fondue they just slide the bananas my way. It’s all I want to dip in chocolate. Cannot stop myself. These look so much prettier than the way I do mine though. You are so creative Nami. Bet the kids loved these.

    Nami,
    I will have my nieces and nephews coming this weekend, total 13 kids, including my 2 boys.
    Gotta feed them and thinking of making this together with them.
    One stupid question, I happen to have Lindt dark chocolates, can I use them?
    Thanks again!
