Step 1: Buy bananas - Check. This one I can do.
Step 2: Slice bananas and insert straws. - My "recipes" called for wooden popsicle sticks but I couldn't find them in the grocery so I settled for these.
Step 3: Freeze bananas for at least three hours.
Step 4: Melt semi-sweet chocolate, dip frozen bananas in melted chocolate, and roll in crushed nuts (walnuts in our case, sosyal). You noticed, I sped through Step 4 because I seem to have messed that Step up when we made our bananas.
For one, the chocolate that we bought took forever to melt. Secondly, when the chocolate finally melted, the consistency was so thick that we couldn't coat the banana with it. And thirdly, apparently, I had to wait for the chocolate to cool before dipping the banana in it. Toink. Nalapnos ang aking saging! (Sorry, I don't have an English equivalent for "lapnos".)
If you think that there is no way anyone can ever mess up a recipe as simple as frozen bananas, then you are obviously wrong. Maybe I'm just missing something here. Is there a special type of chocolate that melts easily and hardens the minute it touches something cold? Next time, I'll probably just go with Hershey's chocolate syrup. Or I could go back to that kiosk in the basement of the Annex in SM North.
