Fried Chocolate Bananas

For all those chocolate and banana fans, here's a great and simple treat or dessert. Crunchy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside.

  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup melted semisweet chocolate
  • 12 large wonton wrappers
  • 12 (3-inch) pieces bananas
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Oil for frying
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • 6 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate sauce, warm

Directions

  • Preheat the fryer to 350 degrees. Spread 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate over each wonton, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Place the banana on the bottom edge of each wonton. Lightly wet the edges of each wonton with the egg wash. Fold in the ends toward the center about 1/4-inch. Then, beginning at the bottom, roll up the wonton securely, pressing to close. Fry until the bananas are golden, about 2 minutes, stirring constantly for overall browning. Remove and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with the powdered sugar. To serve, place a scoop of the ice cream in the center of each shallow bowl. Lay two of the fried bananas next to each scoop of ice cream. Drizzle with the chocolate sauce.
