This recipe was created by our very talented writer, Lisa, and as you can see, it came out spectacular.  I want to share with you one of my favorite tips for melting chocolate, though. I don’t have a double boiler, and I don’t like to use the microwave to melt it because I can never quite get it right. I use a small or medium (depending on what I’m making) stainless steel saucepanstorks-movie-snack-penguin-recipe. I’m talking the old-school saucepans, here. We’ve had ours since I was a kid. I find that the chocolate melts perfectly over low heat. I can leave it on the lowest heat and stir as needed while I work without it seizing up. Cleanup is actually a lot easier than you might think!

    These look so cute and yummy. I will have to make these for my son and his friends. I am unfortunately allergic to bananas.
