  • DifficultyMedium
4 medium ripe but firm bananas
8 wooden craft sticks
3 tbsp finely chopped lightly salted peanuts
170g good quality dark chocolate (60 to 70 percent cocoa solids), chopped
1) Peel, then cut each banana in half crosswise and insert a lolly stick into each half. Place on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer until frozen, about three hours.

2) Place the peanuts in a shallow dish or on a plate. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of slightly simmering water, over the lowest possible heat, stirring frequently. Make sure the water does not come into contact with the bowl at all. Pour the melted chocolate into a tall glass. Dip each frozen banana into the chocolate, turning it to coat, and immediately roll in the peanuts.

3) Place on a tray covered in waxed paper. Serve immediately or wrap individually in plastic wrap or waxed paper and freeze for up to two weeks.
