Frozen Banana Kisses
fruits such as peaches and grapes make good frozen snacks.
Keep a bag handy in the summertime.
1 pound Nestleģ Peter's Dark
Sweet Burgundy Chocolate
4 ripe bananas, peeled
Slice bananas into bite-size pieces. Line a baking sheet with
parchment paper. Set slices on paper and freeze for 1 hour
until solid. The bananas must be completely frozen so no
moisture gets into chocolate and causes it to seize up.
Chocolate should only be melted after bananas are frozen.
They will not brown while freezing.
2. To cut chocolate pieces from a large block, use a short strong
knife with a big grip handle or a chocolate chipper available
through The Bakerís Catalogue“. Press tip of knife
into chocolate, press down with both hands and chocolate
will "pop" apart. Place chocolate in crockery cooker and turn
heat to low. A double boiler is not recommended.
3. When melted, use a fork to lower bananas into chocolate.
Shake off excess chocolate. Use dessert spoon to catch drips
as you place dipped bananas back on parchment paper.
4. Freeze on baking sheet; store in airtight containers in freezer.
Hint: Dip in colorful sprinkles for a party.
