Banana Split Bites

Banana with whipped cream topping                         

Try these dark chocolate dipped banana split bites for a quick gluten free ( and egg free and dairy free option) dessert that can be made in under 10 minutes. Kids will love making them with you, and everyone will love eating them. They are not fancy, but they taste good and don't require baking.
.
Actually, I have seen this recipe on many blogs.  The banana is scooped out and filled with ice cream, sherbet, preserves, chocolate chips, chocolate syrup etc.  It has been so hot here that my bananas ripened in 1 day and were too soft to scoop out and fill. So I didn't fill them.


Ingredients

3 firm bananas, each cut into thirds
1 cup dark chocolate chips, melted in a small bowl
1 can whipped cream ( or make you own) or use whipped coconut cream for vegan altertnaive ( recipe below)
Sprinkles ( or chopped nuts)  for decoration in a small bowl
Also assemble:
cookie sheet covered with waxed paper

Directions:

Wash the bananas.Leaving on the peel, cut bananas into thirds.  Wait to remove peel just before you dip the bottom of the banana in melted chocolate chips and then sprinkles and place on waxed paper on cookie sheet. Place in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes so the chocolate can become firm. Remove from freezer,  Top with whipped cream ( or whipped coconut cream (see link below) for a non dairy version) and add a blueberry to the top.

Cat Davis at Dessert for Nine  posted these Banana Split Bites and filled them with ice cream.
I have to admit, her photo and recipe looked amazing; mine looks well like... "homemade fun."
I have to give you Cat's link so you can see how fabulous her recipe looked.
Use firm bananas for best results.
