frozen nanners!

our little project for the day...

here is the recipe:
6 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
8 ripe, but not too ripe bananas
8 wooden sticks
nuts, sprinkles, cereal, crushed cookies, whatever you like
peel bananas; insert stick into end of banana. you can either freeze them for an hour or go right into dipping them in the chocolate. (we froze them) melt butter and chocolate together and simmer over low heat stirring until smooth. pour chocolate mixture into a dish and set aside. dip each banana into melted chocolate and coat evenly, then roll in your choice of coatings. (or you can sprinkle it on top) place on a waxed paper lined tray and freeze for about 2 hours. serve them frozen. to store them long term, wrap each one in aluminum foil and put them in the freezer. they keep for weeks. we used recipes from here and here for guidance.
(we doubled the recipe and cut our bananas in half- not the amount of bananas... but we literally cut them in half)

Thank for providing an activity for us tonight!

Saw you on campus the other day, but I was too far to even yell at you. I should have tried...
