We had some good news this week. First, our whopping cough test came back negative. Hooray! Second, we are finally emerging from the zombie state of this awful cold! I hate having sick kids. Not being able to make them feel better is the worst. So now that we’re all getting our appetites back, it’s fun to start playing in the kitchen again.
These were a huge hit, I love anything with caramelized bananas… and the chocolate doesn’t hurt either of course. ; )
CHOCOLATE CARAMELIZED BANANA MALTS
1 T unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups chocolate ice cream
3/4 cup milk (fat free or whatever you have on hand)
2 T malt powder

Melt butter over medium high heat in a small skillet.
Peel banana, cut in half lengthwise, and place cut side down in melted butter. Turn when crisped, then sprinkle with brown sugar.
Cook until sugar carmelizes. Put in blender with remaining ingredients, puree.
