Ingredient and Tools:
1/2 bag (12 oz) organic chocolate chips
1/4 cup organic milk
1/2 bag (7 oz) organic coconut
4-5 organic bananas
1 cup chopped roasted organic soy nuts
2 paper plates
1. A double boiler is just a pan-inside-a-pan that is useful for melting chocolate. Making this recipe without one is tough since chocolate is easy to burn. Ask your assistant for some help in finding and using one.
2. Put a cup or a cup-and-a-half of water in the bottom pan of your double boiler then put the top pan on.
3. Put the chocolate and milk in the top pan, turn the heat on low, and stir a lot. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the chocolate is all melted. Then get your assistant to remove it from the stove and set it aside to cool a bit.
4. Put the chopped soy nuts in one bowl and the coconut in another. You will have to loosen the coconut up a bit with a fork- it's kind of clumpy.
5. Put a big piece of waxed paper on the table, and a small piece on each paper plate.
6. Now the gooey part: Peel one banana, cut it in thirds, and use your tongs or fork to dip it in the chocolate. Make sure it's all covered, and then roll it around in the soy nuts or coconut (or both).
7. You now have a bananoid. Set it on the wax paper-covered paper plate, and start again. Peel your bananas one at a time. This recipe fills about 2 plates. Put the filled plates in the freezer and wait as long as you can stand it (about 30 minutes).
This is a perfect after-school snack!!
