How to make super easy baked banana and chocolate melts

Welcome Darling Lovely makers and bakers to our first tutorial! I thought I’d start with something so super easy that even I can do it without adult supervision! These make great little treats for the cold winter months, take no time at all to make and are sure to please little tummies (but not too often, they may involve fruit but I still wouldn’t call them healthy)!

♥ One banana (ripe, but not over ripe)
♥ A chocolate bar of your choice. I have found the best options to be Mars, Malteser and Snickers, but it’s all down to personal preference.
♥ A sharp knife
♥ A chopping board

Step one

Preheat the oven to 160°C / 325°F / Gas mark 3

Step two

Slice the banana open so that the fruit can be pried apart but the bottom of the skin is still intact, creating a clean line down the middle.

Step three

Dice across the top of the banana so that it can be more easily pried apart but not so you chop any of it off.

Step four

Cut three quarters of an ordinary-sized chocolate bar into small and thin pieces.

Step five

Literally stuff the sliced open banana with the chocolate pieces from edge to edge, making sure it’s full but that it won’t overflow or tip in the oven.

Step six

Put the banana and chocolate on a baking tray and put it in the oven for ten minutes. The skin of the banana should be black and the chocolate should be melted.

Step seven

When the banana is ready, carefully take it out of the oven (using oven gloves, of course) and serve still hot with a spoon! Yum!
