Banana Blooms Dessert Recipe

Banana bloom dessert

This is a fun, simple and delicious recipe to make with your kids. Cut them in half and play with your food to make some pretty patterns. We made ours into blooming flowers.

8 tiny waffles
1 banana
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Splash of milk

Double boil chocolate and milk; sir constantly until completely melted. If you have a fondue melting pot, you can use that. Slice bananas about 1/2" thick. Place banana slices between two toasted mini waffles and flatten with side of knife. Dip in chocolate and set aside on wax paper to cool and harden.

Yield: 4 banana blooms
