Chocolate-Covered Bananas

Chocolate is a Valentine's Day must-have, but dessert doesn't have to be complicated. Make these chocolate-covered bananas in minutes -- they're allergy-friendly, too!

Let's not make dessert complicated this Valentine's Day. For the easiest, tastiest dessert, all you need are three ingredients and three steps: cinnamon crackers, bananas and chocolate; then melt, roll and freeze! These are ingredients you most likely already have in your pantry, and if you don't they're certainly easy to find at any grocery store. The dairy-free chocolate-covered bananas are made extra-special with a crunchy coating of crushed cinnamon crackers. If you have kids, invite them to help out in the kitchen by peeling bananas or crushing the crackers. With such a tasty and simple recipe, this might just become a year round dessert staple.
