Total Time: 2 hr 30 min Prep: 20 min Inactive: 2 hr Cook: 10 min Yield: 8
4 medium ripe but firm bananas
8 wooden craft sticks
3 tablespoons finely chopped lightly salted peanuts
6 ounces good quality dark chocolate (60 to 70 percent cocoa solids),
Peel, then cut each banana in half crosswise and insert a craft stick into
each half. Place on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer
until frozen, about 3 hours.
Place the peanuts in a shallow dish or on a plate. Melt the chocolate in the
top of a double boiler over slightly simmering water, over the lowest
possible heat, stirring frequently. Make sure the water is not touching the
bottom of the top pan. Pour the melted chocolate into a tall glass. 
Dip each frozen banana into the chocolate, turning it to coat, and
immediately roll in the peanuts. 
Place on a tray covered in waxed paper. 
Serve immediately or wrap individually in plastic wrap or waxed paper and
freeze for up to 2 weeks.
