Chocolate banana bites
What could be more delicious than chocolate and nut-covered bananas for a quick and easy sweet treat.
Place chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl. Set bowl over a saucepan with a little gently simmering water in the base, for three to five minutes until chocolate has melted. Stir until smooth.
Peel bananas and cut into bite-sized chunks. Spread out chopped toasted nuts (such as almonds, walnuts, peanuts or pistachios) on a large plate.
Using two forks, lift each piece of banana separately and roll it first in the melted chocolate and then in the nuts, to coat.
Transfer to a tray covered in plastic wrap and place in a cool place to set (this will take up to an hour). Use toothpicks to serve.
When melting chocolate, make sure the water does not come into contact with the chocolate because it can clump together and make the melted chocolate lumpy.
Chocolate can also be melted in the microwave, if preferred. Microwave in one-minute bursts on high until melted, then stir until smooth.
Chocolate banana bites can be frozen, if desired. Spread out on a freezer-proof plastic tray covered with plastic wrap and freeze for one hour.
