Good Time for Balboa Bananas


Anyone from Southern California should have hopefully been to Balboa and picked up a frozen banana or Balboa Bar (ice cream bar).  If you haven’t, you need to.  It’s an experience indeed.  In fact, my aunt will make a trip out of her way when she is in the area just to pick a frozen banana up. 🙂 Got to love her.


Well, since we don’t have anything close to a frozen banana shop, my friend Sam and I decided to make them ourselves. This is yet another Pinterest recipe, so I might as well make a board that says, FINISHED! 🙂 Oh, not to mention for dinner, a pinned recipe … pulled pork stuffed sweet potatoes. YUM!


Note: These were actually made these bites on Sunday, so I was able to eat them (can’t break the “Lent” promise just yet), but haven’t had a time to post it for you.
We used Ghiradelli chocolate, which was certainly much better than melting Hershey’s bars.  That’s just my opinion 🙂 Also, I have to stay true to my Northern California products, right? IMG_6510Take as many bananas as you would like, slice them and place the slices on parchment paper and place them in the freezer for about 1 hour.

Before you take them out, dump the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and put it in the microwave for increments of 1 minute.  Take the bowl out and stir the chocolate around to make sure it is melted. IMG_6511When ready, take a fork (or toothpick) and dip each bit into the chocolate and replace it on the cooking sheet.  Place the sheet back in the freezer for about 30 minutes or whenever you may want to eat them.  Feel free to lick the remaining chocolate from the bowl.  🙂IMG_6514A somewhat appealing picture of our creation and a gorgeous rendition of how they should look (with PB if you are so inclined) 0324d431e82cd7290332d4715d8d012aHave you made anything fun or pin-worthy lately?
