CHOCOLATE COVERED BANANAS AND STRAWBERRIES
- 2 bananas
- 8 strawberries
- ⅔ cup dark chocolate chips 80% dark
- ⅓ cup chopped pecans
You can melt chocolate in the microwave or on the stove. Important - take away from heat or out of microwave before the chocolate is completely melted to avoid a burnt taste. Stir the chocolate while it continues to melt. Wash and completely dry the strawberries before dipping them halfway into melted dark chocolate. Next blend some chopped pecans setting them aside. Now cut a banana into thirds, then in half long ways. Dip one side of the banana into the chocolate and then coat with pecans. Place strawberries and bananas into the fridge until chocolate has hardened.
Serves: 4 - 5
