SO WRONG!!!!! BUT SOOOO GOOD!!!! I sprinkled some crumbled bacon on top of half and kosher salt (sparingly) on the other half before the chocolate hardened added a little more crunch and garnish. Used thick cut bacon and cooked it in the oven at 300 degrees for about 25 mins. to make a soft yet crispy bacon. Also used nutella on some instead of peanut butter even more wrong. Great recipe I love bacon.
Prepared these for the Recipe Group and our guests enjoyed them this evening after dinner. I didn't have the time or patience for the candy thermometer so I purchased Dolci Microwave Hard Dark Choc Shell Coating. It worked great! I also crumbled the bacon. This eliminated the toothpick and made it easier for me. I spread the PB on the banana dipped it in the crumbled bacon pressed lightly and then drizzled the chocolate over the top and smoothed with a spoon around the sides. Still a little messy but quick and easy. Before the chocolate set-up I sprinkled Sea Salt Banana Chips or crumbled bacon on each. This was a fun and different recipe and we were pleasantly surprised with the sweet/smokey/salty flavor. I will make these again. Thanks for sharing!
I made these for the recipe group this week. I will go ahead and say...this was very messy for me and mine looked nothing like the picture. However I think that should be attributed to my inexperience rather than the recipe. I loved this combo though- definitely a little bizarre but sinfully yummy. One error I made was making the bacon too crispy- I disklike soggy fatty bacon but with as crisp as it was it fell apart when I tried to skewer it to the banana. Honestly in the future...only when I am home alone of course...I may just make a sort-of banana split out of it and call it good. Anyway a pleasantly surprising little snack that has all of my favorite foods in one- peanut butter chocolate and bacon. Thanks for sharing!
I made these for Recipe Group and they were sooooo good! Made as written but I had some cooked crumbled bacon to use up so I just 'dipped' the peanut butter bananas in there and that seemed to work out great. once the chocolate hardened I drizzled them with some more chocolate just to make them look pretty. I don't know how often I would actually make these but I will definately be making them again! Thanks for sharing such a fun unique and 'freakishly' delicious recipe.:)
Made these for Recipe Group but I didn't love these as much as I expected - but they were good. I used maple cured bacon which added another flavor. Make sure your banana isn't too ripe or they fall apart. I gave up trying to spread the PB on the banana and just dabbed it on the bacon squares then added the banana. I spooned my chocolate over each let it set then turned them over and covered the bottom. I doubt I'll make these again but loved trying them. Thanks for sharing.
Made this today for a birthday party tomorrow. If I may quote my hubby..."It's like a mouthful of awesome!" I took short cuts (microwave chocolate precooked bacon warmed up different coating method) but still...WOW! Thanks for the recipe!
I love all the ingredients in this recipe and the combo of sweet and salty so when these were choosen as the recipe of the week by Recipe Group I was excited to make them. I only made two because I was the only one interested in trying them. I used a round slice of banana topped that with the peanut butter then place a small piece of bacon on the peanut butter. I stuck it on a wodden skewer and spooned the melted chocolate over the entire piece. I sprinkled a little sea salt on top too. When I ate it I thought this would be better with a thin crisp piece of proscuitto in place of the bacon. My bacon was crisp but the texture turned me off from eating the second one I wanted some more crunch. Thanks for a fun recipe!
This was a fun freaky odd little recipe the Recipe Group chose this week. I only wanted a taste so I cooked three slices of bacon and cut each into 3 pieces. Then I cut 9 banana slices and topped each one with peanut butter. I plopped them down onto the bacon and stuck a toothpick through the middle. Because I didn't want to fool with a candy thermometer I just melted some Wilton Candy Melts and spooned on the chocolate. I did top them with little colorful sprinkles. I placed them on wax paper until they were dry. I could taste each ingredient - a sweet and salty little party in my mouth. I probably won't fix this again but it was fun to try out such a quirky recipe.
Brilliant! Ok so I didn't exactly follow the recipe so beware! One of my favorite desserts is frozen chocolate covered bananas. I make them at home because I can use high quality chocolate (TJ's Pound Plus milk chocolate and Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips)...but my other favorite thing is the chocolate/pb combo. So what did this recipe inspire me to do? Cut my bananas in half lengthwise and spread them with Jiff creamy pb BEFORE I froze them. Then I dipped them in chocolate and froze again before eating and OH MY these are the BEST! I am SO thankful for you and your recipe J.S.!
