This banana bonbon had been tempting me for quite a while. and I finally prepared it last week. I liked this recipe straight away because it is a healthy dessert. It contains no added sugars and is a set of healthy ingredients.
To tell the truth, there are only three ingredients: banana, peanut butter, and chocolate. If you use 70% dark chocolate and peanut butter which contains only peanuts you will have a superfood bonbon, that is, those foods that have many healthy properties. Bananas are often used as a useful resource to make sweets less caloric.
I used a little peanut butter – next time I will be more generous with the filling. The good is when chocolate meets the savory taste of peanuts.
I find this banana bonbon gives its best cold from the fridge.
- 2 bananas
- peanut butter to taste
- 150 g of dark chocolate (not all will be used)
- Peel the bananas and cut them into slices not too thin. Place them in a container and put them in the freezer until they are frozen.
- Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie.
- Take the frozen banana and put about a teaspoon of peanut butter between one slice and the other, combining them two by two. Insert a toothpick to keep them together and make it easier for you to cover them with chocolate.
- Place parchment paper on a cutting board or plate. It will serve to support your freshly covered chocolate bonbons.
- Use a small saucepan so that the chocolate remains collected and it is easier to wrap each candy.
- Using a fork or toothpick that you inserted into the bonbon holding the two sides together, dip each bonbon into the chocolate, turning them until they are covered on all sides.
- Drain them and then place them on parchment paper.
- Keep in the fridge.
- Buon appetito!
