Ellen Johnson from MyNovaVita is sharing a simple and healthy-ish treat for your kiddos. Such a great idea when you have a those bananas that you’re not sure the kids will eat. Dip them in chocolate and have them add some fun toppings and you’ll have a treat you might not want to share with anyone 😉
Chocolate Covered Bananas
12 oz. favorite chocolate chips (white doesn't work so well)
6-8 bananas (mini bananas work best, or you can cut them in half
Wood sticks or skewers
Toppings of choice (chopped nuts, cookies, mini chocolate chips, favorite cereal, etc.)
Add ingredients to shopping list

Peel the bananas and place them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place them in the freezer for 1-2 hours, or until they are cold.
Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, while stirring in between until the chocolate is smooth and melted. While the chocolate is melted, peel the bananas and cut the large ones in half. Place the wood skewer stick up the center of the banana about 2 inches. Dip the bananas in the chocolate and sprinkle the top with your favorite toppings. Place the bananas on parchment paper and put them in the freezer until ready to serve. Or, just serve right away.
Ellen is one of those women that can just about do anything. She can cook, create, design, build things (she literally remodeled her entire house), is a corporate executive, fashion guru, owns several companies, and doesn’t know how to sit still. Her masterpieces in the kitchen range from simple-everyday kind of food, to elaborate creations good enough for the ‘rich and famous’. After starting a successful chocolate company in 2006, she decided it was time to start a full service catering company, called “A Flair for Food”. This allowed Ellen to put all of her creative energy into writing recipes and sharing her passion for food with her diverse clientele.
Ellen is a dear friend of Shandra (Deals to Meals owner) and is excited to continue to share her talents in the kitchen, and love for food with each of you.
