Banana Pops with Hazelnut Butter Filling

IMG_9860

I always have chocolate covered frozen bananas hidden at the back of my freezer, they’re my favourite thing to munch on after dinner. I usually have them dipped in coconut or roasted nuts and they’re pretty self explanatory so I’ve never felt the need to share the ‘recipe’, but today I thought I’d take it to the next level and fill them with that little something extra. The result was definitely worth posting, so here it is!

Makes 2

Ingredients:

1 Banana

2 Tablespoons of Chocolate Hazelnut Butter (I used Cleantella)

50g of Dark Chocolate

1 Handful of Hazelnuts

 

To start, cut the banana in half and make an incision down the centre. Try and get it as deep as possible without going through to the other side.

Spread it apart with your fingers and fill the middle with the chocolate hazelnut butter and pop them in the freezer for 2-3 hours.

Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie. While it’s melting, pop the hazelnuts into the oven at 220’C for 3-4 minutes, then give them a rough chop.

Take the bananas out of the freezer and dip them into the hot melted chocolate, then roll them in the chopped hazelnuts. The chocolate will start to harden right away.

Either eat them straight away or put them back in the freezer for later!
