Chocolatey Banana Surprise

Chocolatey Banana Surprise


3 people made this

About this recipe: Not much to prepare with this one, you simply need a few bananas - one for each person you are serving, and a large bag of milk chocolate buttons. You could also perhaps try white chocolate buttons for an original twist!

Serves: 6 

  • 1 average size banana per person.
  • Large bag of milk chocolate buttons.
  • Whipped cream - if desired.

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Cut a slit along one side of each banana through the skin using a sharp knife. Ensure the split is approx 5 cms deep as the buttons will be sitting inside the gap. Gently pull apart the split so that you have room to put chocolate buttons inside and put them inside the slit you have created. You may repeat this is you want to fill another slit with chocolate buttons.
  2. Now push the slit back together, so that the banana appears unopened and the chocolate buttons are sitting inside. Wrap each banana in cooking foil.
  3. Place the bananas on the BBQ for approx 5 mins so that the chocolate begins to melt inside the banana.
  4. Serve to guests on a plate, or eat with them still in the foil - use of a spoon might help here! You can also add a little whipped cream to make this sweet dessert more naughty!
