Sometimes, having an after-dinner dessert rounds out a meal. A square of dark chocolate makes for an excellent choice that isn’t overly sweet or rich in calories. For another excellent post-dinner treat, try these chocolate-dipped banana bites, plain or with hazelnuts or freeze-dried strawberries.
Serving Amount
  • 2 bananas, sliced to ¼ inch thick

  • 14 cup chopped hazelnuts

  • 14 cup chopped freeze-dried strawberries

  • 12 cup dark chocolate chips (50-60 percent cocoa)

  • Step 1

    Heat a cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat. Place a larger bowl with chocolate chips on top and allow for the steam to heat the chocolate slowly. 

  • Step 2

    Using food tweezers or tongs, dip half of the banana in the melted chocolate, then dip in hazelnuts, freeze-dried strawberries or leave plain. Put on parchment paper until chocolate has solidified, then keep frozen in a freezer safe container.
