Other than s'mores, campfire chocolate simply didn't get any better.
In Paris, I have somehow graduated from marshmallow-love. Super-sweet-gooey just doesn't do it for me any more.
Then tonight I opened the fridge and realized that I was out of my habitual single-serve chocolate mousse dessert. Anxiety began setting in.
Ah, but necessity is the mother of invention. The cupboard contents were pretty skimpy (it's been a busy day) and I made do with what was available: bananas and little squares of 70% dark chocolate. So I am proud to present Polly's Bananes Zappées au Chocolat. It was heaven, took about 90 seconds to prepare, is lo-cal, and total comfort food. I am reveling in my new discovery. This will definitely be a habit. Here's how:
Peel, then split the banana in thirds from the end with your thumbs. Place sections on a plate. (It would probably work to slice banana also.) Take a small square [pictured] of dark chocolate and grate all over banana slices. Zap in microwave for 30 - 40 seconds.
Maybe someone has invented this before I did, but I invented it tonight. Who said I didn't know how to cook?
