Chocolate Banana Dessert Cups are da bomb digity bomb, according to my 7 year old son, Maverick! No joke, it's exactly what he said! I believe he got the line from a Bring It On movie... The girls are head over heels for these things too! They didn't have quite the explanatory vocabulary like Maverick did though. These Chocolate Banana Dessert Cups taste like a giant chocolate chip with a hint of banana. So sO SO gooood!
These are great desserts and there is no added sugar to them. Only the sweetness from the chocolate chips and if you add sweetened cream. They are not as thick as a pudding nor are they quite the texture of custard. They are a bit in between, but they are still silky, smooth and delicious. Plus, they are a breeze to make in the food processor. Takes only a minute to whip up, pour them into some cute little mason jars or dessert cups and chill until they are set.
Not only are these Chocolate Banana Dessert Cups delicious and easy to make, but I think I'm on to some new flavors as well. You could make a butterscotch, peanut butter banana, white chocolate strawberry... Hmmm... my creative juices are a flowing. Excuse me a minute while I go write all these ideas down....
My son couldn't have described these Chocolate Banana Dessert Cups any better than what he did. They really are da bomb digity bomb! Give them a try and let me know if you agree with his choice words! Enjoy!
Chocolate Banana Dessert Cups
- ½ cup milk, any type of milk will do
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 medium banana
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- whip cream, optional
- chocolate syrup, optional
- Blend the banana, eggs, and vanilla in a food processor or blender until smooth.
- In a small sauce pan, warm milk on low heat. Watch carefully!
- Once the milk starts to bubble around the edges, turn off heat.
- Quickly add the chocolate chips to the milk and stir until completely melted.
- With the food processor/blender on, slowly add about ¼ of the chocolate mixture until mixed. (You are tempering the eggs so they don't scramble)
- Slowly add the remaining of the chocolate mix while the food processor/blender is on.
- Gently pour the mix into 5 or 6 small mason jars or dessert cups.
- Place on a sheet pan or in a dish and chill in refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
- Once chilled, you can top with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
