chocolate covered banana

Day Thirteen of the Valentine’s Day Challenge is Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Treats! These are a quick treat you can do if you need something last minute and you forgot to plan anything. These taste like little bites of banana chocolate ice cream! These are a great alternative to the usual chocolate covered strawberries, especially if your significant other doesn’t like strawberries!

The last day of the fourteen day challenge is tomorrow and I can’t wait! It’s been a pretty intense fourteen days, always worrying about what to make for the next day haha. I hope you guys enjoy the last recipe of the challenge; it’s pretty versatile and can definitely be used for days other than Valentine’s Day.

Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Treats

 

  • 2 Bananas, chopped and frozen
  • 1 ½ cups Vegan Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Shortening

Optional

  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Seal Salt or to taste

*I sprinkled mine with just a bit of brown sugar and sea salt. The salt is a nice addition to cut through the overall sweetness of the treat!

Directions

Chop up two bananas and freeze them in advance, this makes them easier to cover in chocolate.

Melt the chocolate with the vegetable shortening over a double boiler until smooth and set aside to cool before covering the bananas.

Dip the bananas in the chocolate and using a fork, pick them up and shake off the excess before moving to a container lined with parchment paper.

If using, sprinkle them with brown sugar and sea salt and then place them in the freezer until eating.

Enjoy!
