Chocolate Banana Bundles Recipe

Publisher Photo
Banana and chocolate is such a irresistible combination that I make this quick dessert often. I sometimes sprinkle on a dash of sea salt. You can also top with any leftover butter and brown sugar mixture.—Thomas Faglon, Somerset, New Jersey

MY REVIEW

This dessert has become a regular in our house! It is SO good! Easy prep and it is DELICIOUS especially with vanilla ice cream!

MY REVIEW

A version of this dessert is made at a restaurant in Orlando. It is a MUST when my husband and I get over that way (we live in Tampa, FL). One difference: the recipe at the restaurant includes raisins, the brown sugar and some chocolate in the pastry along with the banana. I prefer it with the raisins. My husband doesn't like them and prefers it without them.

How about using puff pastry shells? Slice the banana, and pile into the center of the shell, then bake. Just a thought, since I haven't tried doing this, but seems to me it would work. YUMMY nevertheless!

Re: Smoky kitchen

Here's a suggestion. I have great success cooking bananas in a non-stick skillet. Melt butter and brown sugar first. Add sliced bananas and over a med. low heat allow the fruit to soften up. Cut the puff pastry into squares (or whatever shape you like) and bake them til golden. Once cooled you could drizzle them with chocolate and then make "stacks" using the fruit as filling or place the fruit on a plate and stick puff pastry triangles into the ice cream. Just a thought.
