Frozen Chocolate-Banana Pops
Recipe courtesy of Food Network Kitchen
These creamy frozen pops take frozen bananas to another level. A small amount of cocoa and cream produces a smooth, mellow chocolate flavor[. The peanuts complete the experience by adding nuttiness and a kiss of salt.]
- 4 large ripe bananas
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 cup salted, roasted peanuts, finely chopped
Special equipment: six 3- to 4-ounce ice-pop molds
Break the bananas into chunks, and puree in a food processor until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add the cocoa powder, cream and maple syrup, and puree until combined. Spoon the banana mixture into ice-pop molds, and freeze until firm, 8 hours or overnight.
Spread the peanuts on a plate. Run hot water over the ice pops to help loosen them, then unmold, roll them in the peanuts and serve (or keep them frozen on a parchment-lined baking sheet until ready to serve).
