These Nutella Chocolate-Covered Bananas are super simple to make, but you won’t be able to stop eating them! They’re the perfect sweet treats.
Sprinkles make everything better. Well, almost everything. I suppose they don’t cure diseases or make people rich or help you find a job. I do believe, however, that they can make someone fall in love with you. Because how could you not fall in love with someone who makes you treats covered in sprinkles? I guess that means you should be falling in love with me? I swear, I made these just for you. Swoon!!
NUTELLA CHOCOLATE-COVERED BANANAS RECIPE
But seriously, I want to feed the world these Nutella Chocolate-Covered Bananas. Especially people who claim they don’t like bananas. I know that I could convert every banana hater over to banana lover with these. First, I would draw them in with the sprinkles. They would not be able to resist the brightly colored, spring-themed sprinkles. Then they’d see the chocolate and they’d grab one of these bite-sized treats. When I tell them there’s a banana underneath the raspberry chocolate, they may shudder and make a move to place the nugget back in the bowl. But then I’d just have to whisper one word. Quietly, but clearly….. Nutella. There is Nutella inside. And then said banana-hater would not be able to resist at least trying these delights… They’d quickly pop one in their mouth. Their eyes would get wide, they’d whimper “oh my God” and then they’d grab another. Mission accomplished. Oh and for all the banana lovers? You don’t stand a chance not eating an entire batch of these. Just warning you.
Also, sorry if that conversation just got kinda awkward. Don’t mind me.
Start by slicing your bananas into 1/4-inch slices. Then, make little Nutella sandwiches with them by spreading Nutella on one banana and topping with another. I recommend utilizing a toothpick to keep the two banana slices together so they don’t start sliding.
Pop these babies in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Melt your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl (side note: Wilton Candy Melts are so much easier to melt in the microwave than chocolate chips). Also, I used Wilton’s Dark Cocoa Raspberry Candy Melts for these, but they’ve been sadly discontinued. I’ll probably use a simple chocolate or dark chocolate candy melt when I make them again, but really, you can use any flavor you want.
Fill a couple little bowls with your favorite sprinkles.
Take banana sandwiches out of the freezer and dip them completely in the chocolate. Then dip in the sprinkles.
Remove the toothpick quickly as the chocolate will start to harden right away.
It will only take a few minutes before the chocolate hardens and they’re ready to be dug into! But you should keep them in the fridge if you don’t devour them all right away.
I’m telling you, there is something absolutely awesome about these that you won’t even believe until you try. You bite into one and your teeth hit the perfectly chilled candy shell before sinking into a ridiculously flavorful banana Nutella mixture.
The first thing Chris said when he tried one was “Whoa, even Adam would love these.” Adam is my brother-in-law and he doesn’t like bananas. I’m probably going to force him to try one of these.
I ate a million of these and now I want to make a million more and keep them in my freezer for eternity. OK, so I’m not quite sure how long they would last in there, but I’m willing to try. And I’ll admit I kept these in the fridge for a week and kept eating them and they were still perfectly delicious.
Give me sprinkles or give me… Well, I don’t think there really is anything comparable to sprinkles. Especially when they’re on Nutella chocolate-covered bananas. Actually, on that note, would you be mad at me if I posted about sprinkles again tomorrow? And then talked about them all day long on Twitter? Because I’m actually headed to “Sweet Up” at Wilton’s Headquarters tonight and tomorrow! I’m crazy excited to meet the other Treat Team bloggers, to get my dessert decorating on, and to be a part of the media event that gives a sneak peek of Wilton’s new products and more.
If you’re interested in tuning in to the big event, it will be live streaming on YouTube from 1:00-2:30, so you can be a part of it, too! Wilton has always been very near the top of my list of brands that I respect and use most often, so I can’t get over the fact that I’m actually going to their headquarters. I just feel so, so lucky!
True or false: Sprinkles make life a little bit happier?
