Low Calorie Snack- Chocolaty Banana

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Being a mother I can definitely relate to this with my child who is fussy about not having banana at any cost. So in order to provide him with the richness of the nutrients of a banana, I coated it with melted chocolate chips for some time and then let him have it. Knowing him to be a avid fan of chocolate he would grab on to those and by the time he realizes that he has been duped;-), he would have munched a whole lot of those. By doing so there would be three purposes served, 1- my son would have his banana and 2- he would develop a taste for it and 3- he would start thinking about next time I give him a chocolate based food and be on guard ;).

4 ripe Bananas 
1/2 semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp Sprinkles /chopped nuts

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Peel the bananas and place them on a baking sheet. Freeze for at least 15-20 minutes. Take the chocolate chips on a microwave proof bowl and microwave on high until just melted, almost 1 minute( in between stir every 20 seconds). Stir until smooth, with the help of a spatula pour the melted chocolate on bananas quickly, coating well.

 And decorate with sprinkles to make them attractive. Put these chocolate coated bananas back in freezer for firmness. Serve these with chocolate sauce. I was in total mood to pamper myself so had these with chocolate ice-cream and chocolate sauce. You can roll them in chopped nuts too. Infact tastes great with butterscotch bites.
