One of my favorite carnival/fair treats is the frozen chocolate banana, however I feel that the price at these events is leaning towards crazy. A while back I was determined to make some myself, and while getting a bowl of ice cream, it came to me... chocolate shell!

It hardens on ice cream, why not a chilled banana? I gave it a go, and here is how I did it.

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:

Ripe bananas (as straight as you can find)
Kebab skewers
Magic Chocolate Shell (store bought or homemade
Aluminum foil/ wax paper/ parchment paper
A bowl (preferably one with corners or a pour spout)
A spoon
This is to hard. I'll pay someone to make this for me
you could also cover them with nut or oreo bits ontop of the chocolate
That's a good idea, I'll have to try that! :)
If you didn't seal it off completely would it go brown?
Just to clarify, did you mean that if I didn't cover the whole banana, would the banana go brown? That I don't know, I think the freezing would sort of halt the browning process, but I've never left them long enough to see :)
Sorry about this but I posted that before I looked at the instructable. HEHE. Anyway, I meant that if you put the banana in the fridge would it go brown, I think it only happens when you leave the skin on, because it has happened to me, I should test. But do you have any idea?
Oh, in the fridge. Yeah, I think it would. My nephew likes to peel bananas and not finish them, then he sticks them in the fridge and they turn. I just prefer the freezer because it makes them a little harder as well so that when you turn them this way and that to coat, your banana doesn't slip and twist with gravity.
Now to make the banana Ill tell you the results when done.
Sounds good, just so you know, all freezers are different, mine was actually set kinda high, so it wasn't as cold as I'd have liked. Check your temperature if you find you have the same problem, lower it if you need to.
Tastes like banana icecream then mixed with chocolate icecream ( it doesn't taste that good with icecream) The banana is heaven with chocolate. 5* Post more recipes soon, I'll subscribe.
Since nobody has said it yet, I will: <a href="http://moneyinthebananastand.ytmnd.com/" rel="nofollow">there's always money in the banana stand!</a>
rats! beat me to it as well!
Beat me to it.
Yummiez! I'll have to get some magic shell. Would it work just to pour the chocolate onto the banana?
You could, that's what I did the first time, but you'll still need a bowl. And I ended up using the chocolate that dripped off to finish coating.
Ok, so you kind of need it anyway..
yeah, because otherwise you just end up wasting it.
Usually I just get frozen bananas at the Bluth Banana Stand, but this would be nice to try the next time the stand burns down or whatever.
