Chocolate Banana Bundles Recipe

Chocolate Banana Bundles Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, halved lengthwise
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar until blended. Add bananas; stir to coat. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • 2. Unfold puff pastry. Cut into four rectangles. Place a halved banana in center of each square. Overlap two opposite corners of pastry over banana; pinch tightly to seal. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  • 3. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle with chocolate. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
