Recipe by  

Chocolate-coated Banana Pops are not just for kids birthday parties (though they work very well for exactly that!). They are also for teenager's birthday parties, middle-agers birthday parties and geriatrics birthday parties. And if you are really daring you can eat them between birthday parties!

If you can't be bothered to wait for the bananas to freeze, these delights are very good as a simple hand-held dessert. Just follow the recipe and don't bother with the freezing bit!

How to Cook Chocolate-coated Banana Pops

  1. Peel the bananas and cut them in halves. Insert a lolly stick into each half, place on a tray, cover with cling-film and place in the freezer for about 3 hours (until frozen).
  2. Finely chop the peanuts and place them in a shallow dish or on a plate. Break the chocolate into small chunks and melt in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of slightly simmering water. Make sure the water does not come into contact with the bottom of the bowl. Pour the melted chocolate into a tall glass then dip each frozen banana into the chocolate, turning it to coat, and immediately roll in the peanuts.
  3. Place on a tray covered in greaseproof (waxed) paper to allow the chocolate to set. As soon as the chocolate is set, liberally apply finished bananas to face!

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
You'll need 8 wooden craft sticks although many cook shops sell the actual lolly sticks. The bananas should be ripe but still firm and, for best results, the chocolate should be 60 to 70 percent cocoa solids.
