  • Directions:
  • 1. Peel the bananas and cut into 1-inch pieces. Using a small spoon or a melon baller, hollow out a cup in the cut end of the banana. Spoon some ice cream into the cavity and place onto a wax paper lined tray that will fit in the freezer. Place in the freezer and freeze until the ice cream is very firm.
  • 2. Meanwhile, place the chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each. Once chocolate is completely melted and smooth, set aside.
  • 3. Working quickly, dip the banana bites into the chocolate, encapsulating the ice cream. Arrange on the tray and sprinkle with desired toppings. Place back in the freezer just until chocolate sets.
  • 4. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
