Frozen bananas with cinnamon dark chocolate

These frozen bananas are delicious, simple, and topping combinations are almost endless. Perfect for those hot, hazy, and lazy summers! This recipe is adapted from Katerina and Oishii Treats.

3 large bananas, cut in half cross-section, each skewered with one take-out chopstick
Freeze for at least 1 hour.

100g (about 1/2 cup) roughly chopped dark chocolate
50 g (about 1/4 cup) milk chocolate
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Toppings: chopped walnuts, peanuts, coconut flakes, pecans, pistachios, dried cherries, broken candy cane bits, caramel, marshmallows, brownie chunks, sesame seeds, anything else you would like to coat your chocolate covered frozen banana!

Melt chocolate over a double boiler, mix in cinnamon. Cool at room temperature and coat frozen banana. Cover with your chosen topping and freeze for at least another hour. Enjoy!!

Variation (photo): peppermint extract, dark chocolate, ground almonds
