Friend Deb came up with these darling dipped banana slices. Friend Fran came up with the name Frozen Banana Dips.
It all started when the Farkle group met at Deb's for a fun afternoon of risk taking. We do have a fun time. It's also interesting how a total of 350 points seems to be a stopping place for everyone. Not much risk taking, but..... I want to create a new category called "One dot too many". This is when you roll all six dice the first time and you almost have 3 pairs. I say "almost" because the reason you don't is one of the pairs just happens to be consecutive numbers like 2 and 3 or 4 and 5 or well, you get the picture. That happens so often when we play. So far, I haven't gotten the group to agree with me, but I haven't given up yet.
For snacks Deb brought these dipped banana slices out of the freezer for us to eat. How clever Deb was. They are super easy to make and taste really yummy.
Here's how she made.....
FROZEN BANANA DIPS
*Slice firmer bananas into 1/2 inch slices and place on platter.
*Stick each slice with a toothpick.
*Place platter in freezer for 1 hour.
*Remove platter and "dip" with favorite toppings.
*Deb used Reese's Shell topping and poured it over some. (She said you can find it in the ice cream section of the store.)
*She also used Smucker's Magic Shell Pink Lemonade topping and then sprinkled them with chopped nuts.
*For these she used the Reese's Shell topping and then sprinkled them with nuts.
*For the last ones she used vanilla baking chips + a drop or two of oil and melted in the microwave. She sprinkled them with sprinkles.
*Return the "dipped" slices to the freezer. Serve either frozen (we liked them this way) or thaw for about 20 minutes prior to serving.
