One of the most underrated deserts is chocolate covered banana. The combination of a pure dark chocolate with a sweet banana is really satisfying and requires minimal effort to prepare. These skewers are the slightly elevated version of the classic, dressed up with chopped nuts, shredded coconut, and other various toppings. Keep in your freezer to enjoy yourself or bring to a summer pool party! Everyone will love them!
